Mobile app now also available to non-institutional subscribers
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of a new mobile application, SciVerse Scopus Alerts Individual, which provides non-institutional subscribers with immediate, on-the-go access to the latest Scopus content.

SciVerse Scopus Alerts Individual gives users the opportunity to search across thousands of scholarly journals from more than 5,000 international publishers. This is the first time Elsevier has offered any form of individual subscription to its flagship bibliographic database.
Among the key features of SciVerse Scopus Alerts Individual is the search and citation alerts function, which allows researchers to receive updates on new publications relevant to their fields of interest and notifications on citations of their work by peers. The mobile application also fosters collaboration among the research community as users can share links to articles with colleagues through an email function included in the app.
"For those who wish to stay connected in today's competitive research landscape, leaving their work at the lab is no longer an option," said Yukun Harsono, Senior Vice President, Search & Discovery at Elsevier. "By broadening the availability of Scopus through a mobile application to individuals who do not receive subscriptions through their institutions already, more researchers and librarians are able to keep their work at their fingertips, wherever their work takes them."
SciVerse Scopus Alerts Individual is available to non-institutional subscribers for a 30-day free trial and subsequently a yearly fee. It is available globally through the iTunes store [http://itunes.apple.com/app/sciverse-scopus-alerts-individual/id417735089?mt=8 ] and for Android devices through AndroidMarket [https://market.android.com/details?id=com.service2media.Scopus&feature=search_result ] .
