You may have noticed that over the last few years the face of Linguistics Abstracts Online has been changing. Listed below are some of the new features available for users of Lingusitics Abstracts Online.
Abstract Update To insure that the all of the most recent abstracts are available, we now update abstracts daily to our website.
Full Text Links to full text of journal articles is available via CrossRef, and SFX Open URL (where applicable).
Journal Information We provide a list of all the journals covered by Linguistics Abstracts with journal summaries and other information.
Individual Login Individual users can now have their own login on the Linguistics Abstracts website. Once an individual login is created individuals have access to increased functionality like the Abstract List and E-alerts described below.
Abstract List This allows users to select and save relevant abstracts in folders under their personal login. The user can select abstracts to be emailed to themselves or to a friend.
E-alerts An E-Alert allows you to be notified whenever new abstracts are added to the database. You can select which Subdiscipline(s) and/or Journal(s) you are interested in receiving updates on.
Search Using IPA characters Linguistics Abstracts has implemented E-MELD's CharWrite program which will allow users to input IPA characters. Right-clicking on the field (control-click on the Mac) will bring up a list of all characters which are similar to the last letter you typed. Click on the character in the list you want, and it will replace the last character in the field with the character you selected. Double left-clicking (double click on the Mac) will bring up an IPA chart which allows input of any IPA character into the field. After inputting the IPA character a search can be performed for it using Linguistics Abstracts new search function.
Individual Access You can now access Linguistics Abstracts from your home using your own personal username and password, if you to belong to an institution which subscribes to Lingusitics Abstracts. If you do not belong to an institution that subscribes to Linguistics Abstracts you can receive individual access through Linguist List Plus.
