Elsevier Delves Into Visual Search

Nov 16, 2010

STM publisher Elsevier released Image Search, a new SciVerse ScienceDirect feature that helps users find images and figures relevant to their specific research objectives.
The new feature lets researchers search more than 15 million images contained within SciVerse ScienceDirect. Results include tables, photos, figures, graphs and videos from trusted, peer-reviewed sources.

Search results can be refined by image type and contain links to the location within the original source article, allowing researchers to verify image in context. Researchers can take advantage of Image Search to learn new concepts, prepare manuscripts, or visually convey ideas in presentations and lectures. The new feature is available to SciVerse ScienceDirect subscribed users at no additional cost.
