Scopus March 2012 release overview: New Document Details Pages, Interoperability with Hub, Lipid Structures (beta), etc.

  1. 1. Scopus March 2012 release overview:New Document Details Pages, Interoperability with Hub,Lipid Structures (beta), etc.Michael Habib, M.S.L.S.Product Manager, Scopushabib@elsevier.com
  2. 2. OLD The Document Details page in Scopus was in need of a UI overhaul. Inspired by the redesign of the ScienceDirect Article page and the Article of the Future, we developed our own prototype and usability tested which elements to transfer to Scopus.
  3. 3. NEW The redesigned page improves usability through creating a clearer visual hierarchy that makes the most important information easier to scan. Improved fonts make reading the abstract easier and links to full text are now more prominent. NOTE: PubMed IDs now link to corresponding records on PubMed
  4. 4. Probably the most significant change is the replacement of the tabs on the results page, with links. Web and Patent tabs have been replaced with links that open SciVerse Hub in a new window to display results. A couple key improvements: •The links only appear if results are available •The number of results now displays •Hub offers additional refine options to help continue one’s search •Hub collapses different versions of the same document into one result •Hub has improved relevancy rankingThe More tab is now replaced with a link to View secondary documents.This works exactly the same as the More tab used to. NOTE: All links that used to go to the tab’s now open Hub in a new window: •Other citing sources links on Document details pages •Web link on the Author details pages •Web + Patent links on the Affiliation details pages
  5. 5. NEW A host of subtle UI improvements were introduced throughout Scopus. The most obvious changes are on the Document search form (Homepage). As with the Document Details page redesign, improving the visual hierarchy was the primary goal of the updates. The Search box is now more prominent and it is clearer that the Limit to section is in reference to the search. Spacing and alignment has been updated to ensure a cleaner appearance. Search history interface has been streamlined. Note: Similar updates in alignment were also made on the Author search tab
  6. 6. OLD For comparison, here is what the old one looked like.
  7. 7. The Citations section on AuthorDetails pages now displays boththe number of citingdocuments and the totalnumber of citations received.Before, the number of citingdocuments was the only onethere, which made counts appearlower than they were.The total citations count is stillavailable in the Citation Overviewtool.Note: Terminology to describeCitations and Cited by has beenstandardized on the Results pageas well.
  8. 8. All QuickBib styles have beenupdated to the most recenteditions.
  9. 9. The Journal Metrics section of theSource title details page has beenupdated.A brief description of the metricsis now included. Additionally linksto journalmetrics.com andSciMago (SJR) and CWTS (SNIP)sites have been added.
  10. 10. The most recent SciVerse Application that has been added as adefault to Scopus is Lipid Structures (beta), which was madein collaboration with the LIPID MAPS consortium.Every time a Document details page is loaded, theapp textmines for mentions of lipids. Once found it converts theminto hyperlinks and creates a summary in the sidebar.
  11. 11. Clicking that hyperlink opens theapp in canvas view and displaysinformation, links, and tools fromtheLIPID MAPS Structures database.Like thePANGAEA Related Data app, thisis an excellent example of howthe SciVerse Applicationsframework can be used tosupport the needs of specific sub-disciplines.
  12. 12. A new SciVerse Application thatis optional to add, is theCo-Author Explorer byKeming Labs. This creates avisualization of co-authorrelationships based on recentpublications.
  13. 13. Small UI changes were also made throughoutScopus. For example:•In the main menu, My alerts and My settingsare now simply Alerts and Settings.•The visual design of the Settings page hasbeen updated.•Document Download Manager icons and linkshave removed reference PDFs because it isonly for available PDFs.
