How to Use PEIS-V
The key element of PEIS-V is the dynamic detailed - 6 level - Classification Scheme
for Physics (CSP) of VINITI which now is connected with 4-level
Western CSPs such as PACS and INSPEC. This comprehensive CSP reflects the status
and dynamics of today's physics.
At present CSP-VINITI contains over 8000 headings and subheadings
and may be used as an adequate basic tool for selection from physical sources
and for in-depth multi-profile and multi-aspect systematization of
articles. It is hierarchically marked, and now PEIS-V includes 12 main sections
of CSP-VINITI available at
http://fuji.viniti.msk.su/~peisv/ (former address
An optimal set of subheading codes is assigned to each physical article
in accordance with determined (by means of experts - highly qualified physicist)
various concrete tasks which were investigated in it.
As the first step at conducting of the retrieval search within PEIS-V
you have to open its CSP and take your choice of the corresponding physics section -
1st level of CSP. Then you take your further choice from the pointed below 2nd
levels and so on up to interested for you specific topical subheading. Finally
you may press "Search articles" exactly corresponded to this subheading
and additional terms or keywords.
