The ADS Abstract and Article Services provide access to the astronomical literature through the World Wide Web (WWW). The forms based user interface provides access to sophisticated searching capabilities that allow our users to find references in the fields of Astronomy, Physics/Geophysics, and astronomical Instrumentation and Engineering. The returned information includes links to other on-line information sources, creating an extensive astronomical digital library. Other interfaces to the… Expand
The NASA Astrophysics Data System: Free Access to the Astronomical Literature On-line and through Email
TLDR
The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) provides access to the astronomical literature through the World Wide Web and contains the scanned pages of all the major journals, as well as most smaller journals back to volume 1. Expand
The NASA Astrophysics Data System: Architecture
The powerful discovery capabilities available in the ADS bibliographic services are possible thanks to the design of a flexible search and retrieval system based on a relational database model.Expand
The Development of the Astronomy Digital Library
TLDR
TheAstrophysics Data System (ADS) is the literature search system and archive in this library and contains the full articles for most of the astronomical literature back to Volume 1. Expand
Worldwide Use and Impact of the NASA Astrophysics Data System Digital Library
TLDR
The concept of utility time is introduced to measure the impact of the ADS/URANIA and the electronic astronomical library on astronomical research and it is found that in 2002 it amounted to the equivalent of 736 full-time researchers, or $250 million, or the astronomical research done in France.

system to allow unified access to NASA data at various data centres. In 1993 the abstract service was added to the ADS (Kurtz et al. 1993). The ADS was originally based on a custom-built networkingExpand
Access to the astrophysics data system: what, how, who, and where
TLDR
The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is the search system of choice for Astronomers world-wide and contains over 2.6 million bibliographic records, dating back as far as 1829. Expand
The NASA Astrophysics Data System : Sociology , Bibliometrics , and Impact
The NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS), along with astronomy's journals and data centers, has developed a distributed on-line digital library which has become the dominant means by which astronomersExpand
The bibliometric properties of article readership information
TLDR
The read–cite diagram is introduced to provide a two-dimensional view of an individual's scientific productivity and it is found that the citation function is proportional to the sum of two of the components of the readership function, proving that the normative theory of citation is true in the mean. Expand
Relying on electronic journals: Reading patterns of astronomers
TLDR
How astronomers use journals and what features and formats they prefer are identified, which may provide a glimpse of what to expect of journal patterns and use by other scientists. Expand
The data sharing advantage in astrophysics
TLDR
Evidence for the existence of a citation advantage within astrophysics for papers that link to data is presented and using INSPEC and Web of Science databases whether either papers of an experimental or theoretical nature display different citation behavior is investigated. Expand
