SciVerse Hub site now available to general public

For researchers who do not have access to university science and technology databases, there are other options for searching the literature besides the omnipresent Google Scholar.  Elsevier (which brought you ScienceDirect and Scopus) has now released the Sciverse platform – SciVerse Hub. This search site which links together the Scopus and ScienceDirect databases, as well as websites, special apps, image and methodology searching capabilities.

For access to full text that is not open access, you will, of course, need to purchase or utilize your local library to obtain the text.

This new site is particularly useful for newly graduated engineers who wonder what they can use to search the literature.

One thought on “SciVerse Hub site now available to general public

  1. Ed, thanks for the referral for Hub. There are also plenty of web applications that are integrated in Hub (and ScienceDirect, Scopus) that users can add and use like Share, eReader, Wordle, Altmetrics apps.
