  • The Application Gallery, which will be available in the February release of SciVerse
  • The overview page (which you will be able to see in the February release of SciVerse) of a particular application
  • First, we’ll discuss SciVerse Hub and the SciVerse Applications and then we will go into ScienceDirect
  • Point out Methods Search application
  • Full Text (ScienceDirect) and External (web source) icons
  • Searching
  • ScienceDirect offers a dedicated image search with e.g., links to its location within the source article to easily understand the context. Users save time by not having to scan complete articles to find relevant images (e.g. figures, photos, tables, and videos)
  • For Life Science users SciVerse ScienceDirect offers articles enriched with contextual information on proteins, genes and small molecules as assembled by European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s service Reflect. Reflect recognizes proteins, genes and small molecules from web pages, and link them to information-rich summaries. These can now be found directly from within the SciVerse ScienceDirect article.
  • Related articles from Reference Works are offered on the right hand side of an article in order to connect essential and fundamental information from reference works on SciVerse ScienceDirect. In that way users can easily access related basic knowledge for broadening their perspective or better understanding a new and unfamiliar topic.
  • 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.

    3. 3. What is SciVerse?
    4. 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. 5. What is SciVerse? •Integrated Content & Discovery Tools •Productivity-Enhancing Applications
    6. 6. SciVerse Scopus SciVerse ScienceDirect SciVerse PlatformAugust 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.
    7. 7. PreviewofSciVerse Applications SciVerse HubBetaOn 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. 7

    16. 16. SciVerse ScienceDirect
    17. 17. ScienceDirect • ScienceDirect is Elsevier’s extensive and unique full text database that covers authoritative titles from the core scientific literature. • More than nine million full-text articles from 2,500 journals and 11,000 books are available in ScienceDirect, making up 25% of the world’s STM literature.
    18. 18. You can access ScienceDirect by… 1. Through your library’s webpage, under Databases 2. Go to www.sciencedirect.com 3. Linking from the SciVerse Hub
    19. 19. ScienceDirect Updates: • 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
    20. 20. The New SciVerse ScienceDirect
    21. 21. Image Search results in SciVerse ScienceDirect
    22. 22. Integration of REFLECT
    23. 23. Reference Work Helper
    24. 24. Collaboration is Key • Another update recently made to ScienceDirect (independently of the SciVerse launch) is the partnership with NextBio. • This has enhanced ScienceDirect content in the fields of life sciences, health sciences and chemistry
    25. 25. 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
    26. 26. 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.
    27. 27. 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.
    28. 28. 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.
    29. 29. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio On selecting a category and source, results can be further sorted and refined
