The ever-growing volume of scientific research is accelerating the pace of scientific breakthroughs. This, in turn, requires R&D departments in government and industry to stay agile and ready to adapt swiftly. To navigate this dynamic landscape and make informed decisions, R&D professionals face the challenge of consuming the most trusted and timely information. This article discusses how the ACS All Access Subscription package can empower R&D professionals to make better choices in today's fast-paced scientific environment.

Fostering Interdisciplinary Perspectives by Unleashing Knowledge Across All Disciplines

The ACS All Access Subscription package encompasses more than 90 peer-reviewed journals, thousands of digital books, C&EN, and more, presenting quality research and scientific advancements in a broad array of research areas.

Having access to this vast library of research across diverse disciplines allows researchers to explore interdisciplinary approaches that might spark breakthroughs.

For example, a team of researchers at McGill University in Quebec, Canada, is bringing the farmland to the city by using industrial byproducts such as slag and concrete as growing substrate. By combining the knowledge of materials science and agricultural engineering, researchers are empowered to approach the pressing global issue from a new perspective.

Moreover, scientists often find inspiration for solving their own problems by exploring research in other fields instead of staying within their own. Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, 2022 Nobel Laureate and Editor-in-Chief of ACS Central Science, shared in a recent interview how she found unexpected solutions twice in seemingly unrelated research published in ACS journals, which later saved her research projects.
