SciVerse Hub is a new product that, like its name, is the focal point for the researcher to access the new capabilities in SciVerse -- The integrated search capability in SciVerse is not the same as the capability the institution may have developed internally to sequentially conduct the same search in multiple databases. Because SciVerse Hub contains a single index of all of the content in SD, SC and Scirus, search results are de-duplicated and ranked based on an algorithm that is similar to “Cross-Ref”. Results that appear highest on the list are most authentic – for example, those that are peer reviewed and/or published in a journal will appear higher than others with the same keyword matching. SciVerse Hub is also the place where researchers will access the new applications on the previous slide, and any other applications they license in the future. --------------------------- If customer only has SD then the only change is that the single index won’t search Scopus.

Reference Works Helper links to relevant reference works on ScienceDirect directly connected to a selected article.
By clicking on the underlined key terms within the article, the researcher can zoom in on that term and find an overview of where the key term appears in the article, a description of that term, and related content.
e.g. locate key authors and their affiliations, view only tissue-related results, and/or select the full set or a limited number of results to name just a few options.
in earth and environmental science journals from PANGAEA’s data library already links primary data related to journal articles from Elsevier and other publishers. However, rather than searching for data in a repository and then looking for the corresponding article, a researcher is more likely to first find an article in a literature search, and then realize the need to access the corresponding data set.
When data sets are available for an article, a PANGAEA icon and link are displayed on the ScienceDirect article. By clicking on the icon…
… the user is taken to a page that includes citation information and a link to download the data. The data sets are freely available without a login or subscription.
Independent Journal Metrics - to help researchers, librarians and decision-makers achieve their desired outcomes. To improve the quality and impact of research, whether they perform research, disseminate it or fund it. To answer a variety of questions, such as which journals to track, where to publish and how evaluate research outcomes. Existing tools to compare journals do not fully meet the needs of the research community in terms of coverage, transparency and robustness.
Many institutions also find it difficult to comprehensively identify all published research produced by their researchers (especially those that are no longer with the institute).
Here is an example of how a customer at Hong Kong University uses Scopus API to highlight his achievements. And this is an example of how Baystate Medical Center shows off recent faculty publications. We encourage you to register your institute through the Scopus info cite.
By clicking on the “full text” icon within your Scopus search results, you are able to link to full-text articles on SD, enabaling comprehensive, in-depth retrieval of relevant literature for all subject areas.
Alternatively, if you link from an article in SD to Scopus, it will allow you to see the abstract and citation information brought to you by Scopus.
The new Scopus Alerts (Lite) application, which went live on Wednesday May 12, gives researchers mobile access to the Searching and Alerting features of Scopus. It’s designed to eliminate the need for scientists to seek out a desktop or laptop computer to search for quality research data while travelling, attending conferences or commuting to work. This mobile app includes some of Scopus’s most popular features. It allows researchers to: • Search across thousands of scholarly journals. • Share search results and article links through e-mail or Twitter. • Save important abstracts in one place for easy look-up. • Set up and review e-mail alerts for their favorite searches. • Set up e-mail alerts for when an author cites a particular article. • Annotate abstracts with their own notes.

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.
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.

New Perspective on Journal Metrics SCImago Journal Rank – SJR Source-Normalized Impact per Paper – SNIP INTRODUCING TWO JOURNAL METRICS
Metrics to Support User Needs http://www.info.scopus.com/News/content/latest
- Apply to nearly 18,000 journals, proceedings and book series - Are refreshed twice per year to ensure currency of metrics - Eliminate the risk of manipulation - Correct for citation behaviour and database coverage - Provide multidimensional insights into journal performance - Allow for a direct comparison of journals, independent of their subject classification - Are integrated into the Scopus Journal Analyzer
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 <ul><li>High impact, lots of citations </li></ul><ul><li>One citation = low value </li></ul>Arts & Humanities journal <ul><li>Low impact, few of citations </li></ul><ul><li>One citation = high value </li></ul>
More on... SNIP Calculate ‘Citation Potential’ for 2009 4. Citation Potential = average number of references to any 1-3 year old papers <ul><li>SNIP = 2009 Impact / 2009 Citation Potential </li></ul><ul><li>Life Sciences – high impact, high Citation Potential </li></ul><ul><li>Arts & Humanities – low impact, low Citation Potential </li></ul>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.
