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: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

    Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

    Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

    Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

    The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

    Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

    Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

    An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

    Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

    Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

    Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

    From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
