Elsevier Science Enhances Scirus Search Engine

Elsevier Science (http://www.elsevier.com) has announced a new look and easier-to-use interface for its science-specific search engine, Scirus (http://www.scirus.com). A new release of the search tool has a redesigned layout that makes it even easier and quicker to find scientific information on the Internet. Further improvements to Scirus include a refreshed and updated index, including access to the source arXiv.org, enhancements to the advanced search functionality, and a new Scirus Advisory Board.

The search and results pages now have a cleaner, smarter design and are easier to navigate, so that users can pinpoint scientific information, locate university sites, and find reports and articles in a clutter-free and efficient manner. The index of Scirus has been increased to cover more than 85 million science-related pages, including access to about 180,000 e-prints contained within the arXiv.org archive (formerly http://xxx.lanl.gov). This electronic archive and distribution server for research papers is fully automated and covers topics like physics, mathematics, non-linear sciences, and computer science. The advanced search facility of Scirus has also been enhanced. Users can now ask for results that fall within a specified date range.

As part of the new and improved Scirus, an advisory board has been established. The aim of the advisory board is to provide professional advice on the development of the search engine, so that it will continue to fulfill the information needs of scientists worldwide. The Scirus Advisory Board consists of a Library Advisory Board, a Scientific Advisory Board, and a Technical Advisory Board. More details can be found on the Advisory Board section of the Web site (http://www.scirus.com/advisory).
