A show of hands please: Who has a smartphone or tablet? If you don’t have one, raise your hand if you plan on getting one for your next phone.
Who uses smartphones?
A show of hands please: Who uses apps on their smartphone, android, iphone, blackberry? Any app – Facebook, Twitter, Angry Birds? Any guess’s? How many iphone/ipad apps have been downloaded?
100% growth smartphones Nearly 300% tablet and e-reader
who use’s for professional purposes? (ScienceDirect, Scopus, Evernote?)
Does anybody use? Please give me feedback. Note: Both apps do not sync to the desktop version of Scopus or ScienceDirect meaning alerts and settings on your desktop version will not be saved to your iPhone and you need to email yourself if you want to read an article/citation on your desktop rather than on your iPhone

Of course making use of the applications to enhance content is key Many of you are now familiar with article of the future and have seen the new article page.
This section was created by my colleagues in ScienceDirect.
Image and its description may not always fit the same page. Scrolling through the article back and forward can be tedious.
Finding the exact values of the data points represented in a graph is often necessary to be able to understand and interpret results. Interactive graphs provide automatic tools to support those needs
If a psychology experiment is based on the complex procedure, its description in the article can be long and difficult to follow. Many psychologists include experimental flowcharts in their talks when presenting their research at the conferences. However, those flowcharts are not always part of original articles.
Who needs book content? What is the value of books to the research workflow? This chart shows researchers’ choice of content as they progress through the stages. Notable findings: In the fundamental knowledge stage: Researchers prefer books 72% over journals, as books are a solid source of proven information As researchers deepen and apply methodologies, they turn to books more than half of the time, and rely on newer findings from a reliable source Once they understand and explore the core topics under study, adding currency from the field helps them challenge accepted views, and at this stage, journals are most valuable With a strong foundation, deeper insight, and currency from the field in their own area, researchers want and need books to help broaden their perspective—throughout the research workflow as they continue to explore related areas of research. What this shows is that resarchers want, need—and truly value a mix of books and journals, and in most stages of their workflow, books are an extremely valuable source for finding the information they need—fast. Further, 92% of researchers surveyed told us that increasingly they are performing cross-disciplinary research and their need for foundation content in NEW areas is essential as they research across areas of expertise to build foundation knowledge and comparative perspective in new or related fields.

SCIVERSE APPLICATIONSopen, interoperable, domain specific
WORKFLOW TOOLS• Document Management – eReader Formats – Send To Kindle – Send to DropBox – AmmoRack• Data Extraction/Manipulation – Table Downloader – Large Image Viewer – Image Data Extractor• Awareness – MostDownloaded – Journal Minder (in development)
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?• Literature and data want to be together – Mass of data available to researchers outside the formal literature is huge and growing – This is inefficient - task switching between multiple interfaces, hard to find resources... – Smart apps can facilitate interoperability, bring relevant data into context with papers
(Researchers, N = 3824 ; study by Publishing Research Consortium, 2010) High importance but not easily accessible
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?• Customers expect the tools they use to work together – Google Gmail on your Apple iPhone synced to your Dell laptop running Microsoft Windows – SciVerse is one tool among many our users are using and our customers are subscribing to – APIs and an open platform brings SciVerse to where users are and lets other products add value to SciVerse
ADDED VALUE “bX is already available on the eLibrary, and is proving very useful in presenting users with highly relevant material beyond what they find through their own searches. Adding bX to SciVerse will bring added value to those systems too.“ Gill McDonald – Librarian, Cardiff University
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?• Domain specificity is the future of research tools – The current one-size-fits-all model of publishing is print-centric and needlessly constricting – Publishers/database providers cannot build tools for every single scientific discipline – An open platform is the obvious solution – let the research community build the tools they need
“THIS IS A MEDIEVAL WAY OF COMMUNICATING INFORMATION. WE HAVE TOWORK TOGETHER TO CHANGETHIS. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE WE CAN DO.”

How ScienceDirect Article Page Redesign turns researcher problems into solutions Background: We noticed that very often, when the image and related text do not fit the same page, scientists have two PDFs open on their screen (or on two different screens) at the same time. These allow scientists to simultaneously view the image and read the explanatory text Since each pane can be scrolled independently, it is possible to have both the text and an image in view at once 48
How ScienceDirect Article Page Redesign turns researcher problems into solutions (2/3) Background: When discussing with electrochemists potential options for interactive charts, we were told that very often scientists print the article and then use the ruler to draw horizontal and vertical lines on the printed figure to manually measure, which values correspond to a specific point of interest on the graph. Depending on the resolution and quality of the image, those measurements are not always very accurateCrosshairs are most commonly represented as intersecting lines in the shape of a cross ("+"). Using the “crosshairs” functionality, the reader can get access to the underlying data at any location on the graph 49
How ScienceDirect Article Page Redesign turns researcher problems into solutions (3/3) Background: While observing cognitive psychologists reading scientific articles, we noticed that a few people were drawing a-kind-of scheme / flowchart when they were reading the article section explaining the experimental set-up and methods. As we were explained later, those flowcharts often help scientists to gain a better understanding of the experiment, especially if the procedure was rather complexPsychology flowcharts (displayed in the right sidebar) provide a graphical overview of an experimental procedure. It is also possible to select and compare several flowcharts by opening them in a new window 50

Feedback shows that users are very positive “The new article format gives more options. I like it!” It “helps to minimize time required to read an article”. ”Although I still prefer to read the article in a PDF format, I will definitely check the online version because of the extra features. Well done, Elsevier!” “This will reduce my need to print articles.” “Both authors and readers will benefit from this new article display.” 61
