Check out our Nano-EHS Database Analysis Tool

The ICON Nano-EHS Database Analysis Tool offers a way for you to do your own analysis of our database of citations to peer-reviewed publications addressing nanomaterials’ environmental, health and safety impacts. The Analysis Tool enables research comparisons, with every database entry assigned nine indices and each index including a trend across time.

Now you can:

  • Compare categories within a specific time range, e.g., selecting papers published between 2000-2007 and requesting the number that studied nanoscale carbons, oxides, metals and semiconductors.
  • Track the progression of publications in a given category by month or year, e.g., plotting the number of publications studying nanoscale carbons and oxides by year or month between 2000 and 2007.
  • Generate and export custom reports
  • Click on a report result to generate a list of publications meeting user-defined criteria.

Please give it a spin and let us know how we can improve the Analysis Tool or the database itself.
