  • 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
  • The Application Gallery
  • The overview page of a particular application
  • 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.

    35. 35. Collaboration is Key<br />Another update recently made to ScienceDirect (independently of the SciVerse launch) is the partnership with NextBio.<br />This has enhanced ScienceDirect content in the fields of life sciences, health sciences and chemistry<br />
    36. 36. Content with NextBio Functionality<br />… Enriched ScienceDirect content in the fields of:<br /> Life Sciences<br /> Health Sciences<br /> Chemistry<br />… Journals, Book Series, Handbooks, and eBooks <br />… 1995 to present<br />
    37. 37. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio<br />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. <br />Directly on the article page, researchers will find the NextBio application which presents key terms found in the selected article or book chapter. <br />
    38. 38. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio<br />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.<br />
    39. 39. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio<br />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.<br />
    40. 40. Using ScienceDirect with NextBio<br />On selecting a category and source, results can be further sorted and refined<br />
