ScienceDirect Embraces New Web Applications With Latest Release

26.04.2007
Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, is including several new features on its ScienceDirect platform from April onwards to further enhance the customer’s experience.
“In our latest release, we’re implementing some new functionality that is modeled on popular second generation Internet-based services,” explains Joep Verheggen, Director, ScienceDirect. “Customer’s will benefit from features that reduce the need for searching, provide another support medium, improve the ease and speed of cross referencing, and, overall, further improve their productivity.”

The latest additions build on the August 2006 ScienceDirect Redesign, which transformed the platform and brought users the STM information they want, faster. The highlights include:

  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds
  • Cited By in Scopus
  • Live Chat
  • Inward linking simplification

    RSS feeds will be available on ScienceDirect for search results, citations and new articles, as well as more than 300 pre-selected topics. RSS feeds alert users immediately when ScienceDirect has new content of interest to them.

    Access to a wealth of citation information is made possible with Cited By in Scopus, which links to specific citations in Scopus – the largest abstract and citation database of research literature and quality Web sources. Cited By in Scopus, which is included on the ScienceDirect article pages, also features a real-time citation count. A Scopus license is not necessary to view the citations for a given article but a ScienceDirect subscription is required.

    Communication with the ScienceDirect e-Helpdesk will be enabled through Live Chat, which is an online, real-time instant messaging technical support service available 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday. Live Chat will be rolled out in phases following an initial trial period with selected customers.

    ScienceDirect increased its support of the OpenURL standard by upgrading from version 0.1 to 1.0. This change enables new partners to build links more easily and with more flexibility.

    Later this year, 4,000 e-books will be added to ScienceDirect. Covering a wide range of scientific disciplines, including those published under the renowned Pergamon and Academic Press imprints, these additional titles will be fully integrated with the existing books and journals on the platform. Over 50 books will be added each month following the 2007 launch. This new content is in addition to the reference works, handbooks and book series already available on ScienceDirect.

    Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

    At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

    Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

    Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

    Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

    Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

    Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

    University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

    Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

    Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

    Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

    Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

    Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

    Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

    The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
