We would like to let you know of the new beta version of the Mimas Zetoc
service following recent work covering:
Re-Engineering, Software application + New branding

look of your service. Hopefully you may also spot some improved display

the Full Record page to the top of the screen rather than the bottom -
one of the most popular requests received here at Zetoc Support.
Just as a reminder, Zetoc is one of the world's most comprehensive
research databases, giving you access to over 28,000 journals (of which
over 21,500 are current), 45 million article citations and conference
papers through the British Library's electronic table of contents.
We really would appreciate receiving your feedback - good or bad - so
please let us know what you think.
The current version of Zetoc will be around for a while and there will
be changes to bring the beta version fully up to date - just a few
things e.g. current stats pages and Zetoc Alerts are not available in
the beta yet, but we have a Zetoc beta page with FAQ at:
which we will keep up to date with all the latest information and
schedule of release.
