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.
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.
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.
In June 2009, Scopus doubled its Arts & Humanities content. We currently have about 4,000 A&H titles.
And before we wrap-up, I wanted to end with an exciting announcement. Starting in 2009,… Currently the Scopus database contains 1,600 titles in A&H and related fields. Many countries will be better represented as a result of these added titles and researchers will have enhanced access to international A&H content. Journal subjects include literature and literary theory (30% of new titles), general arts and humanities (22%), history (17%), visual/performing arts (16%), among others.
Something that Elsevier is very proud of is Scopus’ international journal coverage. It is very important to capture the surge in publication growth coming from developing countries. China has had a 505% growth in research output over the past 10 years
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 links to Scopus in Reaxys mean that researchers can further investigate how other authors have used variances of the underlying concept of original publications, or get confirmation about the validity of the concept or data. This in turn gives researchers a more powerful way to quickly review and assess the information they retrieve and make decisions more effectively by allowing views from all angles. Existing seamless linking from Reaxys to Scopus is achieved simply by clicking the “View citing articles” hyperlink within the results set in Reaxys. When a publication has been indexed in both Reaxys and Scopus, Reaxys uses the “Cited by” information from Scopus to bring the bibliographic details over from Scopus. The “Times Cited” number indicates the relevance of the publication, giving a good indication as to the accuracy and quality of the data that Reaxys has indexed from it.
Seamless linking from Scopus to Reaxys is possible through the “View Compounds” and “View Reactions” options within the abstracts and references.
Embase plays a key role in the advancement of new biomedical and pharmaceutical discoveries, by supporting a global community of biomedical scientists, clinical and regulatory professionals and information professionals.
Clicking on the Cited-By Counts in the Session Results will take you to Scopus. The seamless link enables you to complement your Embase search with author and citation tracking and reviewing multi-disciplinary sources from Scopus.
Here is a sample screenshot of the Compendex search results page with Scopus Cited By information
Within the abstract of an EV record, the first 2 most recently cited by Scopus articles are listed on the right side of the page.
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.

We plan to integrate all of our products and databases onto SciVerse. We will be starting with SciTopics with the 2011 launch of SciVerse. SciTopics is a free, wiki-like knowledge-sharing service for the scientific community. It offers distilled, authoritative and up-to-date research summaries on a wide range of scientific topics. SciTopics is designed to be a starting point for researchers to gain an introductory overview of a particular topic, while also identifying sources for a more in-depth analysis and coverage of that topic. Unlike other web services for the scientific community, SciTopics does not focus on one specific scientific discipline, but is open to researchers from all scientific areas. SciTopics is characterized by the unique integration of content, searching & rowsing and community features, offering you a wide range of benefits as a researcher or student . Find trustworthy scientific information on the web SciTopics embraces a strict editorial policy to control the scientific quality of the content. This policy includes authorship by invitation only, a ban on anonymous postings (or postings under alias), and general supervision by a group of subject specific editors. In addition, the SciTopics team gives all newly published pages a quick check for completeness, appropriateness, etc.

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
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.
