Upgraded Features and New Website Design (December 28, 2006)
We are pleased to announce that the relaunch of the CiNii website took place on December 25, 2006.
The new and upgraded features include:
New website design
The CiNii website now has a new look. The new design enables users to navigate faster and easier.
In the detailed display pages, users can search by authors' names or keywords, or see the table of contents by clicking links.
Additionally, full text documents can be displayed with just a click.
Detailed information and abstracts are now open access
Detailed display pages are available to any user without registration. (They were previously restricted to registered individual and institutional users.)
Registration is still required in order to see citation information, abstracts published by certain academic societies, and fee-based content.
Please note that all full text documents are available via Pay Per View without user registration.
Limit searches by selected conditions
There has been an increasing demand for limiting searches to results containing the full text of a document.
Users can now select from the following three search conditions:
- "All" - searches all records
- "Include Full-text" - searches records that have full text in CiNii
- "Include Full-text and/or link" - searches records that have full text inside and outside CiNii, and records that have links to external services (Ichushi etc.)
Cross-links with Ichushi Web
Cross-links with Japana Centra Revuo Medicina (Ichushi) Web, one of the most significant medical bibliographic database services in Japan, are now available.
Clicking the "Ichushi" link in CiNii takes users to the article information page on the Ichushi Web page.
If a user is not eligible to access the Ichushi Web, a log-in window will be displayed.
Links from Ichushi Web to CiNii were also launched on December 27, 2006.
* For more information, go to the Japana Centra Revuo Medicina website:

Downloading of bibliographic information is now available for all articles. Users can utilize article information by using reference management software.
On the right side of the detailed display pages, the following three links are displayed for users to download data:
- Refer/BibIX Format: can be imported to EndNote or RefWorks etc.
- BibTex Format: can be imported to BibTex.
