File Description [return to top]

SciSearch: A Cited Reference Science Database is an international, multidisciplinary index to the literature of science, technology, biomedicine, and related disciplines produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). SciSearch contains all of the records published in the Science Citation Index (SCI), plus additional records from the Current Contents publications.

SciSearch is distinguished by some important and unique characteristics. First, journals indexed are selected on the basis of several criteria, including citation analysis, resulting in coverage of the most significant publications in the scientific, technical, and biomedical literature. Second, in addition to the more conventional retrieval methods, SciSearch offers citation indexing, which permits searching by cited references. For records added since January 1991, author abstracts, author keywords, and KeyWords PlusTM may be searched.

SciSearch indexes all significant items (articles, review papers, meeting abstracts, letters, editorials, book reviews, correction notices, etc.) from approximately 4,500 major scientific and technical journals. Some 3,800 of these journals are further indexed by the references cited within each article, allowing for citation searching. An additional 700 journals indexed have been drawn from ISI Current Contents series of publications.

      /AB  Abstract: Mercury was not regarded as a pollutant of primary 
            importance until many deaths due to mercury poisoning 
            occurred in the 1950s. More recently, adverse health 
            effects have been documented at relatively low exposure 
            levels, and monitoring data must now be interpreted in 
            this light. The Mediterranean basin has been studied in 
            great detail over the past 20 years because of the 
            anomalous natural presence of mercury. Marine animals of 
            this basin have higher mercury body burdens than the 
            same (or similar) species in the Atlantic. The mercury 
            found in marine organisms is mainly in the form of 
            methyl mercury. Long-term and frequent intake of seafood 
            with high mercury levels by populations living in 
            coastal fishing villages is associated with a toxic 
            risk, especially in pregnant women. 
                          (. . .) 
            This information deserves renewed scrutiny with regard to 
            preventive efforts needed. (C) 1998 Academic Press.
