Welcome to the new IsisCB Explore!
IsisCB Explore has a new updated interface, with a sleeker design and a suite of new functions…and we removed the beta from our logo! With the new IsisCB Explore, you have a powerful research tool at your fingertips, one that opens up the field of history of science, technology, and medicine in unparalleled ways. At the same time, our user interface remains simple and intuitive.
The data remains the same: fifty years of bibliographical citations turned into a relational database. What’s new are the page layouts that highlight the depth of the information you can find here. This is not your grandmother’s search engine.
To start with, every page you land on has related citations. Whether you are looking at a book, a concept, or an author, if you want a quick peek at related literature, just look to the right. You’ll no doubt find at least one or two items for your bookshelf or your files.
Likewise, the system’s state-of-the-art indexes are just a click away. Do you need to find other authors writing on indigenous agriculture? Looking for a journal to publish your article on Mary Anning? Need a list of top mathematicians in the 19th century? Go to the indexes, and we can get you started.
And if you don’t find what you want in our data, we can send your search query to some of the resources we find helpful so you can jump quickly around the Web.
Finally, if you want to just explore the history of science, go to the playground where we have created a few experimental tools that can help you scan the literature in a whole new way.
