SciVerse

Elsevier has created SciVerse - a new platform for science content to address the needs of researchers. SciVerse integrates the content from ScienceDirect and Scopus and targeted web content and features an increasing range of applications developed by the scientific community.

SciVerse allows a single-search using SciVerse Hub, and applications include:
  • Methods section - search restricting inquiries to the methods/experimental procedures sections of full-text articles
  • Matching sentences - a summary of sentences matching the search term
  • Most prolific authors - locating the top ten most frequently occurring authors in a results list, with citations, article counts, and links to Scopus article profiles
There is also increased interoperability between SciVerse ScienceDirect and SciVerse Scopus, as well as Image searching in SciVerse ScienceDirect.

Sciverse can be accessed from the links to Scopus and Science Direct on the Library's databases page, or directly from http://www.hub.sciverse.com.elibrary.jcu.edu.au/action/home
