ScienceDirect Expands Search Capabilities with FAST ESP

16.01.2007
Fast Search & Transfe (OSEAX: FAST.OL) (FAST), the leading developer of search technologies, and ScienceDirect, Elsevier's premier full-text research resource, today announced that ScienceDirect has deployed the FAST Enterprise Search Platform (FAST ESP).

With FAST ESP, ScienceDirect provides a more powerful search experience enabling users to access over eight million full-text scientific, technical and medical articles. FAST ESP was recently voted 'Top Search and Retrieval Technology' in Information Today's People's Choice Awards and is a finalist for the 2007 SIIA CODiE Awards.

Leveraging the impressive capabilities of FAST ESP, ScienceDirect will enable researchers to quickly find the most relevant information in their area of interest and expertise. Due to the enormous amount of information available via ScienceDirect, accurate, reliable and rapid search is critical to enabling users to leverage the information in a timely and efficient manner. ScienceDirect recently reached a major milestone by supporting its one-billionth full article download. Through the use of FAST ESP, ScienceDirect ensures the ability to continue to support this high volume of search and download activity.

FAST works with other Elsevier products and services, including Scopus (http://www.info.scopus.com/), the largest abstract and citation database of research literature and quality Web sources. Scopus has relied on FAST ESP for more than two years and has experienced positive response from its user community for its exceptional search experience and result relevance. By using FAST search technology, ScienceDirect and Scopus will be able to improve the interoperability of the sites and further streamline the user experience for professionals who use both resources for research.

"ScienceDirect and Scopus are dedicated to bringing researchers the high-quality information they need, when they need it," said Amanda Spiteri, marketing director, ScienceDirect. "The implementation of the FAST search platform offers users an easy to use, yet customizable way of retrieving and ranking information. The interoperability between ScienceDirect and Scopus will be enhanced greatly by using the same search technology."

"FAST works closely with forward-thinking organizations like ScienceDirect and Scopus to provide the best possible user experience for their customers," added Julie Ginches, senior director of corporate communications for FAST. "As a result, it comes as no surprise to us that these products are dominating their market sectors."

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
