Elsevier Introduces Expert Discovery Application for SciVerse Hub
Date:2/14/2012

AMSTERDAM, February 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Application Enables Collaboration by Connecting SciVerse Hub to DIRECT2Experts Network


Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the launch of an expert identification and discovery application that connects SciVerse Hub, a platform for search, analysis and research synthesis, with the DIRECT2Experts online network of scientific researchers.

The Direct2Experts Expert Discovery Application enables researchers to find potential collaborators who conduct related research within a variety of expertise areas while they search for abstracts and full-text articles from multiple sources directly within SciVerse Hub, resulting in workflow enhancement.  

"We created the expert discovery application for SciVerse Hub to link researchers to potential collaboration partners from institutions that participate in the DIRECT2Experts network," said Ying Ding, Assistant Professor of Information Science, Indiana University, U.S. "Researchers can use the search flexibility for expertise discovery as well as to obtain information on each expert and institution."

Many of the institutions in the DIRECT2Experts network use SciVal Experts, Elsevier's expertise profiling and research networking tool that is pre-populated with publication histories from the SciVerse Scopus database. The new expert discovery application helps users make connections between the wide range of scientific data in SciVerse Hub and researchers at particular institutions that use SciVal Experts and other research networking tools, including VIVO, Harvard's Profiles Research Networking Software, Stanford Community Academic Profiles and the University of Iowa's Loki.

"The expert discovery application in SciVerse Hub enables researchers to easily find and connect with experts to facilitate partnerships and collaboration within the research community," said Rafael Sidi, Vice President, Application Marketplace and Developer Network at Elsevier. "We look forward to continued opportunities to develop collaboration tools, in partnership with research institutions that will improve research outcomes."

DIRECT2Experts is a pilot project facilitated by the Research Networking Group of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), a consortium led by the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) National Center for Research Resources.
