ScienceDirect Maximizes Research Capabilities, Enhances the Research Process

AMSTERDAM, October 22 /PRNewswire/ --

- New Interactive and Intuitive Tools Announced for Elsevier's Online STM Information Platform

Elsevier, leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, today announced that it has added more development-partner-tested features on its ScienceDirect platform. Now well integrated in ScienceDirect product development, the development partners' involvement has ensured that the new features mirror researchers' needs.

"We are helping to foster scientific discovery by implementing new functionality that improves ways in which researchers find relevant content," explains Joep Verheggen, Director, ScienceDirect. "Our 'Related Articles' function broadens the initial search by automatically generating similar research results and our new spell checker saves time on re-entering search queries."

Through intelligent document matching, Related Articles automatically displays citation information and the abstract - including a link to the full text - of content relevant to the article being accessed. This improves the discoverability of information and makes it easier for a researcher to find key information.

To maximize search outcomes and eliminate unwanted results, a new Fast Search & Transfer(TM) (FAST) spell check function has been integrated into ScienceDirect. The spell checker recognizes spelling errors using a built-in dictionary.

As an added value to traditional abstracts, ScienceDirect is now indexing Graphical Abstracts of 30 chemistry titles. Particularly important to organic(1) chemistry researchers, Graphical Abstracts help researchers to summarize the scope of a structure or reaction more succinctly than plain text.
