The ASEZA Database is a Search System for Electronic Journals. It is the last and most important part of the Multisuchsystem E-Connect which in the meanwhile I have ceased to develop although some parts of it are yet of some use.
This search system can be used for searching e-journals by title words, terms within titles and subjects.Therefore into this system indexes of terms und subjects are integrated. More than this subjects are linked with terms and titles with subjects so that the system appears multidimensional.
The database or knowledge base of this system consits of over 33000 titles which are supplied by over 400 themes or subjects taken from different resources. In principle, the subjects as well as the journal titles of the database can be taken from all resources free available in the internet, that means from libraries, publishers and institutions. The titles, however, have to adapt to the spelling which is common and preferably accessed by Google Scholar. The terms indexed in the system are taken from the titles of the database, which depends on the fact that title words often describe the matters journals are dealing with.
The acquisition of all
data is done by a system automatically working at once for all:
journal title, location and theme information. Besides titles and
thematic information, the ISSN has been added, if found by the
working in system. The ISSN may be useful for internal
management, e.g. to avoid duplicate entries in different
spellings, but for the search itself it is irrelevant, because
all the links are supplied only by journal title.
Informations about library holdings are already included and can be considered by this system. The licensed and the general or time-limited free available titles are displayed. If you are interested, your licensed library collection can be added to the system at once. It should be noted, however, that Google Scholar indicates many articles from magazines as freely available, even if they are restricted to a license elsewhere.
Therefore all titles of this system are linked with Google Scholar, in order to open the most direct and fastest way to the full text. Besides this also a linkage to the EZB is implemented. Further linkages (as Google, ZDB, SFX, EZB-Link, Springer und Scirus) can easily be added.
