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
What is SciVerse?
Integrated Content & Discovery Tools
SciVerse Platform 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 navigationbetween 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 ScienceDirect SciVerse Scopus
SciVerse Hub Beta Preview of SciVerse Applications 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.
What is Scopus? The largest abstractandcitation 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

The New Author Evaluator Tool
The New Author Evaluator Tool
The Enhanced Citation Tracker
- 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
Life Sciences journal Arts & Humanities journal
High impact, lots of citations
One citation = low value
Low impact, few of citations
One citation = high value
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
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. More on... SNIP Calculate ‘Citation Potential’ for 2009 4. Citation Potential = average number of references to any 1-3 year old papers Normalize for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields SNIP = 2009 Impact / 2009 Citation Potential
Life Sciences – high impact, high Citation Potential
Arts & Humanities – low impact, low Citation Potential
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. Examples…

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.
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
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.
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.
Using ScienceDirect with NextBio On selecting a category and source, results can be further sorted and refined
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
