Elsevier Announces Digital Services Upgrade

Elsevier will upgrade its more than 500 websites this fall with better capabilities for search and mobile access. Elsevier’s investment will deliver more accuracy in search results, an improved editorial tool for article collections, and mobile optimization.

“The priorities for this investment reflect what Elsevier has heard from its journal subscribers as well as what societies have expressed as their top digital platform priorities,” says Glen Campbell, executive vice president of society business development.

Elsevier’s Smart Content, a semantic taxonomy tool, will power the new web services. The content tagged by Smart Content feeds into a new editorial collection tool that creates automated or curated topic collections so readers can find relevant articles for the topics they search. Smart Content has more than 1 million concepts and 3 million synonyms saved, in areas such as diseases, drugs, procedures, anatomy, clinical findings and symptoms, organisms, and substances.

For better mobile functionality, websites will be able to recognize when users view them on mobile devices and automatically optimize the content accordingly.
