Abstract:
The development of Indian citation index (ICI) is necessary for chemical, pharmaceutical and life sciences. On the basic of ICI our country provide the realistic image in the world. For getting more details related to the journal’s citations there is more searching facilities such as search types of quick search, advanced search, cited reference search and subject scope and competition search. It is provide awareness about the Indian citation index, a new web platform and their type searches for knowledge professionals and information professionals who indulged in chemical and pharmaceutical information searching.

1. INTRODUCTION:
In the present Era of Globalization & Liberalization a large number of changes are being witnessed in Indian Pharmaceutical industry, Pharmaceutical Education and in the practice of Pharmacy. For facing these challenges, Pharmaceutical scientists, technologists and academicians of India have to become multi-faceted to keep pace with the fast developing science and technology. There is a wide gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for a Pharmacist to keep pace with the expectations of the Pharmaceutical industry.

The area of chemical and pharmaceutical sciences has undergone a number of changes because of information technology. Some aspects of chemical and pharmaceutical have become simpler such as finding and some have become more difficult.Chemical knowledge and information in the Indian culture area from prehistoric times to about the eighteenth century. Metals and metal-working; dyes and pigments; coinage; rocks and minerals; cosmetics and perfumery; ceramics and glass; paper-making; pyrotechnics and the like were among the important chemical practices. American Chemical Society is the main source for evaluation of growth in Chemical sciences CAS publishes abstracts from scientific literature published throughout the world in the area of chemical sciences.Indian science index is a initiative of knowledge foundation based at india, which is useful for all types of people like researchers, administrators, policy makers, editors, librarians, information analyst and students.

2. OBJECTIVES:
The main objective of this paper is to provide awareness about the Indian Citation Index a new web platform and their type searches for knowledge professionals and information professionals who are indulged in chemical and pharmaceutical information searching.

3. CHEMICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES LITERATURE  SEARCH:
We can search chemical and pharmaceutical information for the wealth of technical information they contain. Researchers who overlook the chemical and pharmaceutical literature run a serious risk that they will miss important documents and waste time and money by duplicating previously conducted search.

Chemical and pharmaceutical information is not an easy task. A searcher should be subject expert and should have knowledge of advance search techniques.

Searching changes depend on the time duration for a subject expert the searching of chemical and pharmaceutical literature relating to his/her subject becomes easy as well as cheap in monetary terms. Also it is necessary to compile a list of search methods and chemical and pharmaceutical databases, which will help the searcher for searching.

3.1 TECHNIQUES FOR SEARCHING:

3.1.1 Boolean logic-
Internet is vast computer database. As such, its contents must be searched according to rules of computer database searching. Much database searching is based on the principles of Boolean logic.

AND Narrows:
Tells the database that user only want information that ALL of the search term

OR Narrows:
Tell the database that user want all information that contain EITHER of terms

NOT Narrows:
Tell the database that user do not want any information that contain a certain term

JOINING Narrows:
Tell the database that user want information with EITHER of two terms AND another

3.1.2 Wildcards and Truncation-
Wildcards is a special character such as an aster (*), question mark (?), or pound sign (#) check a database’s help section to identify what symbol used for wildcards.

Example: Sul*ur

Finds- Sulphar and Sulfur

Truncation can be useful to search for a group of words like  pharma, pharmacology, pharmacy, Pharmaceuticals, etc

Example: pharma*

Finds- pharmacology, pharmacy, Pharmaceuticals, etc

3.1.3 Phase Search-
In phase search is a type of search that allows users to search for information containing an exact sentence or phase. In order to successfully search for term like “Aromatic halide” It’s important that the search website allow synthex for phase searching.

4.0 INDIAN CITATION INDEX:
"Indian Citation Index" (ICI) is a home grown abstracts and citation database, with multidisciplinary objective knowledge contents from about 1000 top Indian scholarly journals. It provides powerful search engine to fulfil search and evaluation purposes for researchers, policy makers, decision makers etc. At present, it comes loaded with a minimum of 7 years back files (depth) which would be extended over 10 years and beyond in a year's time. Indian citation index covering ~125 top scholarly journals in Chemistry, Material Science, Biotechnology, Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Science,Toxicology, disciplines.
