Why should a Science Citation Index® subscriber spend $700 a year for a Permuterm Subject Index?

1 SCI®LINK The PSI™ provides the missing . link to the SCI if the primordial citation* is unknown or forgotten.

2MULTI-ENTRY INDEXING The key to PSI indexing is title indexing in-depth by presenting alphabetized entries for every possible pairing of words in titles and subtitles.

3SPEED AND FLEXIBILITY PSI’s technique of pairing words enables the user to locate any combination of terms quickly without having to examine a number of irrelevant items under a particular term.

4 SPECIFICITY AND SELECTIVITY PSI searches involving a single term are quick and efficient. Searches involving two or more terms are especially easy, as simple as an alphabetical look-up. Terms may even be used to exclude certain types of information.

5 UNIQUENESS The PSI is a “natural language” indexing system based on the real language of science, the current living vocabulary used today by publishing authors, not indexers.

6 COMPREHENSIVENESS The PSI policy of indexing all articles within a journal, regardless of discipline, prevents coverage gaps associated with the selective subject indexes.

7 JOURNAL SELECTION The PSI selection of important journals in all important fields is based, in part, on highly accurate citation analyses of their articles, not a mindless lifting of titles from other lists.

8 MULTIDISCIPLINARY SCOPE The PSI covers over 90 disciplines, categorizing the journals by subject and by country.

9 EXTENSIVE COVERAGE The PSI for 1968 covers 300,000 scientific and technological items.

10SOURCE IDENTIFICATION All the source items are listed alphabetically by author in the accompanying Source Index. The source material identifies type of items as well as all coauthors and includes full bibliographic details.

11CROSS-REFERENCED AUTHORS Comprehensive cross-references are provided for every co-author. Thus, all current articles by a given author can be identified in one place in the Source Index.

12CALENDAR YEAR COVERAGE The PSI is a calendar year index and, for the journals covered, includes all items published and available by the end of the year.

13TRANSLATION Foreign language titles are indexed under the corresponding English terms. Judicious man-machine editing has been applied as much as possible to standardize spelling variations.

14RELIABILITY The PSI is produced by 1ST, leader in producing proven information retrieval and dissemination services.

15CROSS-REFERENCED SUBJECT EN- TRIES Thousands of cross-references have been provided by experienced information specialists to simplify searching and identify appropriate synonyms, spelling variants, etc.

16MULTI-YEAR SAVINGS. If you purchase two or more years of PSI at same time you save as much as 25%.
