Chemical companies are contending with rising production volumes, evolving consumer preferences, increasing sustainability and decarbonization goals, and abounding new regulations. Put all together, it means that in this fast-evolving environment, chemical employees need to stay on top of emerging market demands with access to the latest scientific information.
Regulatory submission specialists submit copies of articles to government agencies where required, as part of a regulatory filling.
Research chemists email copies of journal articles on new compounds to colleagues.
Research and innovation managers email toxicology reports to application engineers who explore new uses for that molecule.
Operations managers store and reuse content, including standards for plant safety, compliance, government response, and plant oversight.
Customer success story
Chemical-industry employees need to stay on top of emerging market demands with access to the latest scientific literature. Without a strategy to manage this information, barriers tend to emerge. Here are some of the most common challenges related to content that we hear among chemical industry researchers, with our tips for how to solve them.
Since 2014, Allnex has utilized RightFind Enterprise for literature management needs, making it easier for colleagues to find the chemical information they need, and allowing the information specialists to focus on high-priority requests that arise.
Access to chemical content is essential to guiding the R&D process and team collaboration. In this white paper from CCC and Chemical Engineering News, you’ll hear from professionals in the chemical industry about their processes for managing scientific information.
2020 Information Seeking and Consumption Study
For knowledge workers in Chemicals and Plastics, using content is essential for collaboration and is a driving force in the R&.D process. Given the imperative to drive new products through the pipeline to industrial and consumer markets as quickly as possible, the behaviors and attitudes of professionals in Chemicals and Plastics around content use and sharing have shifted over time as they seek to establish a competitive edge in an ever-changing landscape. As a result of the pandemic, 2020 also triggered dramatic changes to where and how employees engage and collaborate with published content. The 2020 Information Seeking and Consumption Study by Outsell, Inc. focused on the speed, volume, and scale at which external content is being shared across Chemical and Plastics knowledge workers.
