"Science is about questions, not fields. Why limit your toolkit to only those methods used in your specific discipline? The Navigator makes it easy for cell biologists to do biochemistry, biochemists to do molecular biology and neuroscientists to do biophysics. It’s an on-line scientific boundary remover. Methods Navigator is sophisticated search and discovery tool that allows researchers to get more from serial and journal content on ScienceDirect, allowing users to quickly pinpoint what they are looking for and to make relationships between similar methods used in different areas of research."
Our sophisticated ontology of over 12 taxonomies with over 60,000 mapped topics provides a unique structure for discovery, highlighting relationships between methods and protocols and guiding researchers to better results.
Over 40,000 methods articles from Elsevier’s collection of leading books and journals are now accessible like never before, with topics extracted, highlighted, put into context, seamlessly linking to the full text on ScienceDirect.
Once the correct method or protocol has been quickly and accurately isolated it is ready to be applied in the lab. Methods Navigator brings life scientists at the bench out of the discovery phase and on with their research faster and more accurately than previously possible.
Recognizing there are some fundamentals that are used time and time again and form the basis of much that you do, Methods Navigator offers access to Elsevier’s new collection of essential protocols, in a clear standardized structure, enhanced with flow charts, video and ready to download, edit, share and use.
Fitting your workflow
Making it easy to keep track of your discoveries the ‘My Methods’ enables users to bookmark the methods papers, protocols and topics for future reference. So everything is at your finger tips when you need it.
