Collexis and Scopus to create experts community
Collexis Holdings, Inc., US, has announced an agreement with the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University. The deal seeks to link research faculty from the universities utilising data from Elsevier’s Scopus database and the RAMSeS software environment developed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The web community created will have fully populated information on publications grant data and citations from over 15,000 researchers across all research disciplines.
By tying in its repository with Scopus’ data and then overlaying it with Collexis’ semantic technology, the University of North Carolina expects to offer its scientists a better way to identify, monitor and leverage relevant research being conducted at the institution. This is projected to result in greater collaboration within and across disciplines.
