November 26, 2010 – Elsevier has launched SciVerse Applications beta, a new module within the SciVerse platform that will empower the scientific community to develop and share customized solutions that advance the search and discovery process through its marketplace and developer network.
PRNewswire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Elsevier Launches SciVerse Applications Beta…Enabling the Research Community to Deliver a New Era in Scientific Search and Discovery.” The launch includes the release of content APIs from SciVerse ScienceDirect, SciVerse Scopus and SciVerse Hub beta, as well as framework APIs allowing applications to be integrated directly into SciVerse. The APIs as well as access to the tools and documentation necessary for developing applications are available via a developer section within the module.
The SciVerse platform supports ontology driven apps such as Ontology Driven Semantic Search (ODiSSea), enabling users to efficiently locate biomedical data resources.
