Inspec reaches 10 millionth article

Share this on social media:

Inspec, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)’s bibliographic database, now has over 10 million records. A journal article from IOP Publishing’s Nanotechnology pushed the database over the 10 million mark.

The Nanotechnology article, ‘High throughput cell nanomechanics with mechanical imaging interferometry’, by a group of researchers from the University of California in Los Angeles, describes a new method for cell-screening which could help provide quicker and earlier detection of cancer cells.

Nina Couzin, publisher of Nanotechnology, said: ‘Inspec is a phenomenal resource for science and engineering academics and professionals worldwide and it is a great honour to have helped Inspec reach this symbolic landmark.’

Inspec stores articles from more than 4,000 scientific and technical journals, and contains conference proceedings, as well as books, reports and dissertations on topics ranging from physics to electronics and mechanical engineering, dating back to 1969.
