Elsevier Introduces Reference Modules on ScienceDirect

Elsevier recently launched Reference Modules on the ScienceDirect full-text database. These collections arrange Elsevier’s scientific reference articles by subject for searching in individual databases. Now researchers can access Elsevier content as it is uploaded to ScienceDirect; there is no waiting period for updated reference works. 

The Reference Modules contain peer-reviewed articles that are continuously evaluated by an editorial board. Each Module’s board designs the subject hierarchy for searches and time-stamps each article with the most recent review date. The Modules also link new content to relevant journal articles or book chapters already on ScienceDirect.

“This launch assures that researchers can start exploring scientific topics with authoritative, current content and quickly discover relevant information in related fields,” says Suzanne BeDell, managing director of science and technology books at Elsevier. Reference Modules “provide innovations that address the needs of researchers and content that drives better research outcomes,” according to BeDell.

The introductory Modules are Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences and Chemistry, Molecular Sciences and Chemical Engineering. Elsevier plans to offer increasingly interdisciplinary content and launch more Modules in 2014.
