Scirus Says Goodbye

The Scirus search engine, owned by Elsevier, posted the following message on its homepage:

Scirus is set to retire in early 2014. An official retirement date will be posted here as soon as it is determined.

To ensure a smooth transition, we are informing you now so that you have sufficient time to find an alternative search solution for science-specific content.

Thank you for being a devoted user of Scirus. We have enjoyed serving you.

Scirus is a science-specific research service with more than 575 million indexed items, including journal content, scientists’ webpages, institutional repositories, and patents. Users can restrict searches by subject area, author, journal, article, or date range. There is also an Advanced Search option.

To reflect the science field’s visionary, ever-changing nature, Scirus took its name from a prophet in Pausanias’ Description of Greece. According to the website, “The Scirus search engine will pro-actively support your role as a seer.”

Elsevier has not yet made its own announcement about the service’s retirement.
