Elsevier and NextBio Sign Partnership

Jun 16, 2009

Elsevier announced a new partnership agreement with NextBio, a provider of a platform that enables life science researchers to search, discover, and share knowledge locked within public and proprietary data for use in ScienceDirect content. This agreement allows for an integration of NextBio’s ontology-based semantic tools and a compilation of sources of public data on ScienceDirect. Enhancing ScienceDirect with NextBio’s biomedical ontology framework enables researchers to analyze ScienceDirect content and search ScienceDirect peer-reviewed literature together with publicly available research data from PubMed, clinical trials, experimental data, and news articles, on one single platform. The new enhancement will become available on ScienceDirect and accessible to subscribed users in summer 2009.
