New Product: OSIRIS

A comprehensive international database of listed companies, banks and insurance companies.

Both standardised and “as reported" accounts are provided and specific templates are provided for banks, insurance companies and "industrial" companies to reflect the different configurations of their accounts. In the reports, financial items can be "drilled" into to reveal their more detailed components, until ultimately, the raw data is uncovered. Alternatively, users can go directly to the report that contains their required level of detail.

New Product: CSA illustrata, technology

Deep indexing for tables, figures, graphs, charts and other illustrations from the scholarly research and technical literature. “Deep indexing” categorizes data, variables and other content in tables, maps, photographs and other figures.

Usually, indexing of research articles is done at a rather high, general level where only the key concepts of the work are represented by a dozen or so index terms. But by going deeper and specifically indexing the content associated with all the individual tables and figures, CSA Illustrata enables the researcher to find information that otherwise would not be retrievable in traditional, article-level and full-text indexing systems.
