Silverchair and IFIS announced today the launch of IFIS Collections on the Silverchair Platform.
These human-curated, sector-specific databases are designed to aid information discovery for food researchers. They provide scientists with a simple and effective way to find the research and information that they need and can trust.
IFIS is launching the service with the Dairy collection. The development roadmap will include collections for additional sectors.

20 July, 2020, Charlottesville, VA and Wokingham, UK - Silverchair announced today a partnership with IFIS to host content from their renowned FSTA database.
FSTA is the key resource for searching over sixty years of research in the sciences of food and health. This includes food science, nutrition, agriculture, biotechnology, metabolomics, and many other disciplines. This abstracting and indexing database contains over 1.5 million records from authoritative sources, including journals, conference proceedings and patents. Scientists, students, and information professionals worldwide use FSTA for their research.
The move to the Silverchair Platform opens up greater access to FSTA in the non-academic market. Silverchair offers flexibility to deliver and package FSTA in new ways. The specialized search and browse functionality will also provide an enhanced user experience.
8 June 2020, Reading, UK - IFIS Publishing and Molecular Connections have combined their expertise to develop a publisher-neutral journal selection service to help food and health scientists with this vital step in the publication process.
Choosing the right journal for an article submission is challenging. There are many factors to take into consideration – not least scope, quality, metrics and access options. Poor selection leads to a risk of rejection and wasted time and resource.
The IFIS and Molecular Connections' 'Journal Recommendation Service' (JRS) uses proposed abstracts and manuscript titles to identify appropriate journals through artificial intelligence (AI) (more information). The JRS returns a list of matching journals, along with links to the journal, submission pages, editorial board and three recent abstracts. Options are available to filter by Publisher, Country, Open Access options and more.
This interactive course is built around a core of necessary key research skills, such as defining your research question and creating a search strategy, and includes six short quizzes for self-assessment.
You can take the course online or add to your own learning management system (LMS).
