Elsevier has announced a partnership between Scirus, its free science-specific search engine, and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) to add the collection of theses and dissertations of its member institutes to Scirus. In addition to indexing the content on Scirus.com, Scirus will power a search service on the repository's site.
Scirus has indexed over 200,000 theses and dissertations, in more than twelve languages, including English, Portugese, French, German, Spanish and Taiwanese, among others. By providing full-text and fielded search capabilities on both Scirus and NDLTD's site, Scirus will attempt to ensure that users can search and find the information they need beyond Web and journal content. NDLTD results will be clearly branded and identified on the results page.
