Elsevier Develops Scopus Alerts (Lite) iPhone App

Elsevier announced it has built a new iPhone application, Scopus Alerts (Lite), which gives researchers mobile access to the Searching and Alerting features of Scopus, the abstract and citation database.

The new application, which is available on iTunes and the Apple App Store globally, gives iPhone users the ability to find and display abstracts and reference information from the Scopus database, which covers 18,000 journals produced by more than 5,000 publishers worldwide. The app is designed to help eliminate the need for scientists to seek out a desktop or laptop computer when seeking quality research data while travelling, attending conferences or commuting to and from work.

Application features include the creation of search and citation alerts as well as the ability to save favorite abstracts and add notes. Further supporting collaboration among researchers, the app also allows users to share search results and links to favorite articles, via email and Twitter.

The new Scopus Alerts (Lite) application is the first of several Elsevier has planned to further support the mobility of today's researchers. A ScienceDirect app is in development and customers can expect to receive news of its availability over the summer. The current version of the application is available free of charge to existing Scopus customers and can be downloaded from
