Elsevier to launch soon a new science platform

with one comment

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.

  1. Dear Herve,

    Thanks for the post and quite nicely summarizing some of the new features of SciVerse suite.

    Currently we are not combining SciVal applications within SciVerse but providing a link to our customers to link to SciVal directly from SciVerse.

    In addition, SciVerse would provide researchers/ information specialists an API framework to create their own applications in SciVerse using ScienceDirect and Scopus content. Though users can build applications for research performance evaluation in SciVerse, this would be different from those that would be offered by SciVal (http://www.scival.com/)
