Elsevier to launch soon a new science platform
According several Elsevier communications to customers:
SciVerse would be launched at the end of August 2010.
It will enable an integrated search across ScienceDirect, Scopus,
Scirus, and greater interoperability across the applications.
Additional applications will provide value-added capabilities such as
search refinements and analytics leveraging the combined content.
It would combine:
- 42 millions of abstracts (Scopus)
- 10 millions of full-text (ScienceDirect)
- 10,000 ebooks
- + Scientific web (Scirus)
- + Scientific wiki (SciTopics)
- + Specific applications from SciVal (Research Performance evaluation)
New SciVerse applications such as search within experimental methods and
analysis of prolific authors will result in faster and more precise
results. Combining the three world leading STM resources under a common
SciVerse search interface, will provide an unparalleled resource for
researchers to accelerate discovery and scientific outcome.
At the end of August 2010 the SciVerse platform will be introduced FREE
OF CHARGE as an enhancement to existing ScienceDirect and/or Scopus
subscription as well as being integrated with Scirus.
