1 – 2 p.m. Putting Data to Work: Mining Elsevier Data to Help the Scientific Community Deliver Breakthroughs in Medicine
Presented by Tim Hoctor, Vice President for Life Science Solutions Services, Elsevier
From Scopus and SciVal to Reaxys and Knovel, Elsevier’s suite of services are driven by data and an array of tools, such as analytics and APIs, that help researchers to put that data to work. Tim Hoctor, Elsevier’s VP for Life Science Solutions Services, discusses how Elsevier data and increased collaboration between research scientists and technologists can help researchers to deliver breakthroughs in medicine.

2 – 3 p.m. Deep Data Mining on ScienceDirect
Presented by Chris Shillum, Vice President, Platform and Data Integration
ScienceDirect, Elsevier’s peer-reviewed, full-text database, provides access to over 30,000 electronic book titles and more than 2,500 electronic journal titles covering the fields of science, technology, and medicine. But increasingly ScienceDirect provides access to “new articles,” including podcasts, vodcasts, and data, which can also provide more research insights, and more content to mine.

Throughout the day, Elsevier search solutions experts will be on hand in the NIH Library to provide one-on-one consultations on Elsevier products, including Scopus, ScienceDirect, Embase, and Reaxys. Whether you are a novice or a proficient searcher with “How do I…?” or content-specific questions, we hope to see you there!
