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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

    The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

    The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

    Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

    Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

    Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
