F1000 SciVerse app launched

Posted Feb 16 2012 10:47am

We are excited to announce that a Faculty of 1000 app is now available to Science Direct subscribers within Elsevier’s SciVerse Applications Gallery , allowing researchers, clinicians and students to easily tap into the collective knowledge of our 10,000 expert Faculty Members while browsing articles on ScienceDirect and Scopus .

Once a SciVerse user adds the app, any articles that have been selected and evaluated by the F1000 Faculty will display a badge that, when clicked, brings the user to the F1000 evaluation.

Download the app here

You don’t need a subscription to F1000 to download the app, but you will need to subscribe or sign up for a free trial to see the evaluation and article ratings on F1000.com. You will also need to be within a subscribing institution to either ScienceDirect or Scopus for the app to work.

Rafael Sidi, Vice President, Application Marketplace and Developer Network at Elsevier said,

“The F1000 application offers another option for researchers to filter information that is relevant to their domain.”

Through Science Direct and Scopus, Elsevier’s SciVerse provides the global research community access to over 10 million articles and 41 million records from more than 5000 publishers worldwide.

SciVerse offers a range of applications that can improve the research experience by customizing searches, optimizing workflow and adding desired information and widgets to articles. Examples of these include showing pictures of proteins named in the text of the article, enabling easy sharing of papers through social networks, tracking how much attention an article has had from the general public, and even displaying links to funding bodies relevant to the article being read!

We are also working on extending the app to include the display of related F1000-evaluated articles against any article in ScienceDirect.

We’re eager to have your feedback, so please let us know what you think, and also please let us know any suggestions for useful additions to the app.
