Funding App Appears With Elsevierís SciVerse Applications

Elsevier launched a SciVal Funding App for SciVerse. The app links content from SciVerse ScienceDirect and SciVerse Scopus with SciVal Funding, Elsevier’s online solution that provides targeted recommendations on grants. The SciVal Funding App makes it easier for researchers to discover funding opportunities related to their area of research. The new app links SciVerse articles and abstracts to SciVal Funding, increasing the discoverability of global funding opportunities.

The SciVal Funding App can be subscribed to or added for free in SciVerse Applications. It will retrieve up to five relevant funding opportunities to an abstract in SciVerse Scopus or SciVerse ScienceDirect. The app uses the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine to match active funding opportunities to the abstracts, delivering targeted funding recommendations directly into the researchers’ workflow.

In addition to the launch of the app, SciVal Funding expanded its geographic scope to Australia and Ireland. SciVal Funding now covers the U.S., Canada, U.K., European Union, Australia, and Ireland. This year more than 1,400 funding bodies have already been added to the initial 3,000 U.S.-based sources available on the platform. By the end of the year, Elsevier intends to include funding bodies from Singapore, South Africa, and New Zealand.

Elsevier’s SciVal suite of services supports academic and government leadership in evaluating, establishing, and executing research strategies that optimize the performance of existing assets and maximize investments to enhance near and long-term productivity. SciVal tools leverage Scopus data, Elsevier’s trusted source of bibliometric data, to offer innovative yet authoritative solutions. Current suite offerings include SciVal Spotlight, a strategic tool that generates institutional and country maps of existing and emerging research strengths based on an interdisciplinary perspective of current performance; SciVal Funding, an online solution that provides targeted recommendations on grants to pursue based on prepopulated research profiles and historical awards; SciVal Strata, a web-based research performance tool that offers users the flexibility to construct relevant contextual data to evaluate research teams or individual researchers, using a range of indicators based on Scopus data; and SciVal Experts, a semantic technology-based application that enables researchers to identify and locate sources of expertise at an individual or departmental level within and across institutions.
