Elsevier’s Ambassador Program
Are you eligible?
By Elizabeth Zwaaf | Marketing Communication Specialist, Community Engagement Team, Elsevier Posted on 11 April 2012
Elsevier’s Ambassador Program ensures that all receiving editors of a journal are granted complimentary access to the SciVerse Platform – the repository of ScienceDirect and Scopus.
At Elsevier, we immensely value the dedicated work of receiving Editors who between them have helped to publish more than 12 million journal articles. And to acknowledge this, Elsevier has committed itself to providing them with complimentary access to some 2,500 journals and 14,000 electronic book titles published on ScienceDirect.
Editor-in-Chief of the journal International Immunopharmacology, Professor James E Talmadge, comments: “The complimentary access to ScienceDirect and Scopus is very powerful at an academic center that does not have full access to Elsevier publications.”1
Sir Gordon Duff, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Cytokine, adds: "This makes checking references and source materials much easier and quicker.”2
In exchange for activating a unique code given to them by the journal’s Publisher, an Editor will receive an automated user login to enable them to access the SciVerse Platform from any computer, tablet or smart phone using the single-user-login functionality.
Eligible Editors are also able to utilise the features of Scopus for free, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, and qualify web-sources.
Professor Talmadge adds: “Scopus is particularly useful in the identification of reviewers, as well as potential ethical concerns.”
Whilst still logged into SciVerse, an Editor can perform and save advanced searches across ScienceDirect and Scopus content via the SciVerse Hub as well as other web content and refer to it for future use and also take advantage of using the SciVerse Applications, a marketplace and developer network.
If you need any further information on the Ambassador Program, please contact your publisher.
