Interoperability between ScienceDirect and Reaxys creates richer, more discoverable chemistry content
A new integration between ScienceDirect and Reaxys, Elsevier’s unique web-based chemistry database, improves the discoverability and usefulness of Elsevier scientific chemistry full text content.
Authors submitting articles to selected chemistry journals are invited to contribute structure (MOL) files of their key compounds. These structure files will be used to add compound identifiers (InChI keys) to the article, making both the article and its key compounds more discoverable through mainstream search engines like Google.
In addition, the structure files will also be used to visually display all the key compounds referenced in an article in a single scrollable list. Further functionality, including links to both Reaxys and Google, will be easily accessible within the application.
What are the benefits?
For the author of the article the benefit is better discoverability of the article. Also, the article is further enriched to be even more attractive to the reader.
The researcher benefits from faster digestion of the article, as well as connectivity to relevant other content on the web. The interoperability between ScienceDirect and Reaxys allows researchers to unravel deep layers of information, otherwise hidden in the full text, to further increase research productivity.
What does it look like?
Reaxys is Elsevier's workflow solution for research chemists. Offering a wealth of experimentally validated information, Reaxys combines reaction and substance data in organic, organometallic, inorganic and physical chemistry with synthesis planning.
