Elsevier and Molecular Connections Develop Two New Applications on SciVerse Applications

Elsevier announced two new applications from Molecular Connections, a life science informatics company, on SciVerse Applications beta. Ask Extractor is an application based on Molecular Connections XTractor, a platform for discovery, analysis, and modeling of biomedical information. The application provides search suggestions for life sciences terms entered into SciVerse Hub and SciVerse ScienceDirect. The second application, Journal Trends, enables users to discover top journals as a result of a given search query.

“Due to the enormous amount of published scientific information, applications that refine and simplify search results, or assist in creating a targeted query, can significantly benefit researcher workflows,” said Vidyendra Sadanand, chief technology officer of Molecular Connections.

“Molecular Connections has significant expertise in providing solutions to the life science research community,” said Rafael Sidi, vice president, Application Marketplace and Developer Network at Elsevier. “We look forward to continuing our work with Molecular Connections and the developer community to deliver applications that will improve researchers' productivity.”

SciVerse Applications and the Developer Network provide opportunities for researchers and librarians to collaborate with developers in creating and promoting new applications that improve research workflows. The Developer Network features a growing community of application developers that gain potential recognition, prestige, and revenue through their contributions to SciVerse Applications.
