Elsevier offers upgraded illumin8 search tool

1st August 2011

Elsevier has launched an expanded version of illumin8, its semantic search tool for research professionals.

The web-based product now contains additional features such as illumin8 Reports, which enables users to share and analyse their research findings using a specially created customisable document.

Robbertjan Kalff, Elsevier's vice-president for product development in engineering and technology, said the service is designed to aid professionals during the early stages of the innovation process.

"Users say that this is the time where they don't know what they don't know, but at the same time they need a way to get on the right track faster," he explained.

Other new features of illumin8 include the Explore function, which can be used to access a quick overview of the organisations, products and people related to a particular technology or market.

First unveiled in 2008, the tool indexes scientific, patent, news and web content from Elsevier and a range of other key sources.

According to the company, it contains more than five million scientific and technical articles from 1,800 Elsevier journals.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800650774-ADNFCR
