Analytical Abstracts is a literature updating service keeping you up to date with recent developments in analytical science. The searchable updates consist of article abstracts and details of analyte, matrix and technique. Updates can also be searched by subject area, chosen from a predefined list of topics. Subscribers can set up personalised searches and receive alerts of the latest developments directly via email.


Analytical Abstracts contains records from dozens of different journals, and covers a wide range of topic areas from materials science to food analysis, and from pharmacology to environmental monitoring. See our source list for full details.

Information provided by Analytical Abstracts

Each record provides searchable details of analyte, matrix and technique, as well as subject classification to allow easy browsing. Bibliographic information can be imported into citation management programs and there is also a direct link to the publisher’s website where the article can be downloaded (subject to the reader having a relevant subscription with the individual publisher).

Email alerts

Personalised searches can be saved to a user’s profile and used to create automatic email alerts that will send details of recently added abstracts without having to perform a new search. Readers can also sign up to weekly or monthly updates to browse when they choose.
