  • 2. Agenda
    • Introducing the SciVerse Platform
    • SciVerse ScienceDirect Updates
    • SciVerse Scopus Updates
    • SciVerse Hub
    • SciVerse Applications
    • Admin Tool
    • Q&A
  • 3. What is SciVerse?
  • 4. What is SciVerse?
    • SciVerse empowers the research community to accelerate science by opening ScienceDirect & Scopus content APIs for third-party application development, enabling intelligent search and discovery across integrated content from ScienceDirect, Scopus, and the scientific web
  • 5. What is SciVerse?
    • Integrated Content & Discovery Tools
    • Productivity-Enhancing Applications
  • 6. August 28, 2010: ScienceDirect and Scopus integrated on the SciVerse platform
    • Single log-in provides access to all licensed and free SciVerse products – Hub, ScienceDirect, and Scopus.
    • Increased interoperability and easier navigation between solutions
    • Image Search for full-text articles and books (e.g. photos, tables, videos)
    • Integration of REFLECT , the 2009 Grand Challenge winner, offers contextual information on proteins, genes and small molecules within articles.
    • Reference Work Helper links to relevant reference works on ScienceDirect directly connected to a selected article
    • Author Evaluation tool visualizes author data to aid collaboration or individual assessment decisions
    • Citation Tracker: it is now possible to download citations from 20,000 records at one time, and increase from 5,000.
    SciVerse Scopus SciVerse ScienceDirect SciVerse Platform
  • 7. On August 28, 2010, SciVerse Hub was launched with three free Applications for all customers
    • One search across a single index of ScienceDirect, Scopus, and web content
    • Three embedded applications for all users that include:
    • Methodology section search application for full text articles
    • Sentence matching application efficiently assesses search results and displays query words in the full sentences where they appear
    • Prolific author search application finds the most “prolific authors” publishing articles about search terms, linking into articles by that author within Scopus.

  • 15. Collaboration is Key
    • ScienceDirect collaborates with 3rd party providers to further accelerate research
    • Partnership with NextBio has enhanced ScienceDirect content in the fields of life sciences, health sciences and chemistry
    • ScienceDirect and PANGAEA have implemented reciprocal linking between their respective content in earth system research.
  • 16. Content with NextBio Functionality
    • … Enriched ScienceDirect content in the fields of:
    • Life Sciences
    • Health Sciences
    • Chemistry
    • … Journals, Book Series, Handbooks, and eBooks
    • … 1995 to present
  • 17. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio While viewing an article or book chapter on ScienceDirect, the keywords from that selected article or book chapter are matched against NextBio’s biomedical ontologies. Directly on the article page, researchers will find the NextBio application which presents key terms found in the selected article or book chapter.
  • 18. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio The in-context pop-up allows the researcher to quickly gain an overview of the article from the perspective of their chosen term, and to quickly link through to other information.
  • 19. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio Clicking within the NextBio application box allow for further exploration of the subject based on the trustworthy and publicly available sources collected and compiled by NextBio.
  • 20. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio On selecting a category and source, results can be further sorted and refined
  • 21. What is PANGAEA?
    • Publishing Network for Geoscientific & Environmental Data
    • Information system that is aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research
  • 22. PANGAEA Brings Data to ScienceDirect
  • 23.  
  • 24.  
  • 25. New! ScienceDirect for iPhone!
  • 26. SciVerse Scopus
  • 27. What is Scopus?
    • The largest abstract and citation database
    • of research literature and quality web sources.
    • It provides users with comprehensive coverage
    • of leading peer reviewed literature.
    • 40 million records
    • 20 million cited records, 1996-present
    • 20 million back files, 1823-1995
  • 28. What does Scopus Cover?
    • 16,500 peer reviewed journals
    • 600 trade publications
    • 350 book series
    • Extensive conference coverage
  • 29. Multi-disciplinary Subject Coverage Life Sciences Social Sciences Over 5,000 Publishers Physical Sciences 7,200 6,800 4,300 5,300 Health Sciences
  • 30. New! Arts and Humanities in Scopus Increased coverage in the Arts and Humanities Current A&H Content ~1600 titles New A&H Content ~1450 titles Scopus is now truly an “all-science database” for large universities with strong A&H faculties
  • 31. International Journal Coverage North America 37% South America 1% Europe, Middle East & Africa 50% Asia, Australia, and Pacific 12%

  • 36. New Perspective on Journal Metrics SCImago Journal Rank – SJR Source-Normalized Impact per Paper – SNIP INTRODUCING TWO JOURNAL METRICS
  • 37. Metrics to Support User Needs http://www.info.scopus.com/News/content/latest
  • 38. More on... SJR SJR is a prestige metric – citations weighted depending on where they come from - A journal transfers its prestige by citing - Prestige transferred = journal’s SJR e.g. Lancet SJR 2007 = 1.541 – high prestige e.g. Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports SJR 2007 = 0.153 – lower prestige A journal’s prestige is shared equally between its citations Normalize for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields Life Sciences journal
    • High impact, lots of citations
    • One citation = low value
    Arts & Humanities journal
    • Low impact, few of citations
    • One citation = high value
  • 39. More on... SNIP Calculate ‘Citation Potential’ for 2009 4. Citation Potential = average number of references to any 1-3 year old papers
    • SNIP = 2009 Impact / 2009 Citation Potential
    • Life Sciences – high impact, high Citation Potential
    • Arts & Humanities – low impact, low Citation Potential
    Normalize for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields 1. Collect papers citing 1-3 year old papers in target journal in 2009 2. Collect reference lists of citing papers Etc . 3. Count number of references in citing papers to any (in any journal) 1-3 year old papers Etc.

  • 42. Scopus API
    • Through the Scopus API, any website can incorporate
    • Scopus' powerful search capabilities, high quality citation
    • data and up-to-date citation counts.
    • Why is this Important?
    • Sourcing and providing accurate publication data efficiently.
    • The very best repositories often miss 40% of their institute’s output.
