CrossFire Commander and DiscoveryGate
Scopus is interoperable with CrossFire Commander and Discovery Gate, bridging the gap
between text and structure searching. Where Scopus is an all-science literature research
tool, CrossFire Beilstein indexes three primary data domains: compounds (or substances),
reactions, and literature. From Scopus we match records with the CrossFire Beilstein
records. If they are the same, the links to compounds and reactions in Crossfire are
established within the Scopus record.
This interoperability is an increased value-add where users have both products (Scopus +
CrossFire Commander) or (Scopus + DiscoveryGate). The end-user can now link from the
Scopus abstracts & references pages to a summary of chemical compounds and reactions.
Also, the other way around, the end-user can view documents in Scopus from CrossFire
Commander and DiscoveryGate with this compound.
Within the drop down menu on Scopus’ Basic Search there are two searchable fields (see
1. Chemical Name search
2. CAS number
Where a match is established, the Scopus record page shows a compound and reaction
(See images below)
Intermediate screens containing the relevant chemical compound or reaction information
provide insights especially for those working in chemistry or chemistry-related disciplines.
