Netherland Elsevier launches ScienceDirect Topics to help researchers quickly build their knowledge and save valuable time searching - 14 Sep 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced the launch of ScienceDirect Topics - a free layer of content which provides a quick snapshot of definitions, terms and excerpts on scientific topics, built on Elsevier's highly trusted book content.

Research is becoming increasingly multi-disciplinary, requiring researchers and scientists to quickly come up to speed on topics outside their core scientific discipline. The time it takes to get up to speed on an ever expanding corpus of scientific topics impacts their productivity and workflow. ScienceDirect, Elsevier's leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature, has created these innovative new Topics pages and made it available for free to address these needs.

Researchers and scientists can access these pages directly from hyperlinked key terms in journal articles, or via searching on the site, to learn quickly about a topic without disrupting their research workflow. Science Direct Topics help researchers to quickly build their understanding of a scientific topic, learn and interpret scientific concepts and enhance their knowledge base across multiple disciplines quickly and efficiently, thereby improving their productivity.

ScienceDirect Topics will provide researchers with Quick Definitions - a short definition to explain a particular scientific topic or term; Related Terms - for those that want to explore interdisciplinary areas further; and Relevant Excerpts - comprehensive overviews on a topic, users can then explore further and decide to read relevant chapters in Elsevier books.

ScienceDirect Topics indexes 80,000 pages on Life Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and Neuroscience on search engines. This provides researchers, students and anyone interested in specific scientific topics with a free layer of information.
