Preface

"Information Big Bang" ─ in the age of information, we are deluged by ever-growing waves of updated science and technology information pouring in from every corner of the world. The key to navigating R&D and intellectual property management in this sea of information is to get the information on your side ─ or select and use the most relevant information precisely and efficiently ─ so that you can dominate the creation of new knowledge and the expansion of corporate value.
Finding the most relevant information from the astronomical amount of science and technology information is no longer something an individual can do alone. This is where the secondary information database comes to play an important role. Yet databases are worthless unless they can quickly deliver the right information to the right searcher. Databases must allow users to reach the exact information of interest, comprehensively analyze retrieved information, and collect, process, and accumulate information in easy-to-use forms.

We, JAICI, have provided high-quality database services for science in Japan, especially in the fields of chemistry, such as CAS STNext, an integrated database search tool and CAS SciFinderⁿ for researchers. We deliver maximum support for users through training sessions and help-desk services. We also offer a variety of fact databases such as for crystal structures and mass spectra, as well as software such as for drug discovery and crystal structure analysis.
Furthermore, based on our accumulated expertise we provide IP search and analysis services in the fields of medicine, chemistry and biology, a technical-terms dictionary with thesaurus and highly accurate machine translation services adapted to chemical substance names.

Thanks to continuing your support, JAICI celebrated the 50th anniversary in 2021.

And we have revised our mission, set our vision・values・tagline. We have renewed JAICI-Logo too.

With our new mission in mind, JAICI will keep transforming ourselves so that we can offer you solutions which shall satisfy your much broader and more sophisticated needs in wide-ranging areas.

Pursue Science with Information.
