  • Point Full Text, Abstract and External 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • • You will enter the main page for your consortium, your account or your group within your account, depending on your administrator rights.• Use the right hand bar to navigate to accounts within your consortium and to groups within your account.• If you have subscribed to both ScienceDirect and Scopus, both tabs will appear. If you have only subscribed to ScienceDirect or Scopus, only the relevant tab will appear.
  • • Click on ‘Create/Edit a Group’ to modify the groups within your account.• Create groups in order to organize IP address ranges and users within your account, to specify Scopus and/or ScienceDirect product settings for different user groups, and to track specific group usage.Organizing your account into groups enables you to control the document delivery settings, transactional access and credit card purchasing rights for the specified groups, as well as track the usage for those groups.If you wish to delete groups, please contact E-Helpdesk.
  • Edit Account IP RangesManage your users’ access rights, based on IP ranges• Click on ‘Account IP Ranges’ on the homepage.• View the ranges of IP addresses currently assigned to your account.• Use the checkboxes and the navigation bar to make the following changes to the ranges of IP addresses:- Move- Remove- Split into subsets that can be individually deleted or moved todifferent groups• Request new IP ranges to be added to your account. You will receive an email confirming your request. E-Customer Service will follow-up with you as soon as the changes have been made.
  • If you click on ‘Usage Reports’, you can log on to the Usage Reporting Site via a link in the Admin Tool using your Administrator username and password.• If you click on ‘Library Integration’, you can configure transactional access for downloading non-subscribed articles, document delivery for your account and your groups, establish credit card purchasing rights, and view your transactional balances.
  • Set up your own library branding• Click on the tab for the product that you want to customize (either ScienceDirect or Scopus, depending on your subscriptions).• Click on ‘Institutional Logo or Text’.• You can set up the display of your library logo and descriptive text to appear on ScienceDirect and/or Scopus.• You can also include a link from ScienceDirect and/or Scopus to your library website.
  • Contact details are available on the back cover of theQuick Reference Guide

    36. 36. The New Author Evaluator Tool
    37. 37. The Enhanced Citation Tracker
    38. 38. Journal Metrics
    39. 39. Compare up to ten journals at one time
    40. 40. 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 Life Sciences journal • High impact, lots of citations • One citation = low value Arts & Humanities journal • Low impact, few of citations • One citation = high value Normalize for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields
    41. 41. More on SNIP Calculate ‘Citation Potential’ for 2009 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. 4. Citation Potential = average number of references to any 1-3 year old papers SNIP = 2009 Impact / 2009 Citation Potential • Life Sciences – high impact, high Citation Potential • Arts & Humanities – low impact, low Citation Potential Normalize for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields
    42. 42. SHOW ME THE DATA Published online doi:10.1083/jcb.200711140 The Journal of Cell Biology, Vol. 179, No. 6, 1091-1092 The Rockefeller University Press, 0021-9525 © Rossner et al “Just as scientists would not accept the findings in a scientific paper without seeing the primary data, so should they not rely on (the) impact factor, which is based on hidden data. As more publication and citation data become available, we hope that people will begin to develop their own metrics for assessing scientific quality rather than rely on an ill-defined and manifestly unscientific number.”
    43. 43. 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…
