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."

New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic
14.08.2018 | Institute of Science and Technology Austria
Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
