Analytical Abstracts is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s specialised literature updating service for analytical science. Covering a wide range of sources, the service keeps you keeps you up to date with the most recent developments from the field.
Recently, the Analytical Abstracts website underwent a transformation, with a new user interface and searching tools. We have also developed a brand new email alerting system that allows you to tailor your alerts to your research interests. This new system is now up and running and the previous weekly alerts are being phased out.
To ensure you continue to stay up to date with the latest research from across the analytical sciences, make sure you sign up to the new alerting system now before the old system becomes unavailable at the end of November.
