PARIS, March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
AMI Software (AMI), a leading provider of market intelligence solutions, and Elsevier, world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announce the agreement to provide AMI Software's core product AMI Enterprise Intelligence (AMI EI) with access to data from Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, with smart tools that track, analyze and visualize research.
The AMI-Elsevier agreement allows AMI customers, with a subscription to Scopus, to import bibliographic records from Scopus, via an automated process, into AMI EI. This allows them to significantly improve the quality and the relevance of their online monitoring and data collecting projects, expanding on their capabilities of online information analyses and distribution.
"The creation of a dedicated Scopus connector by AMI Software will help us gain precious time in collecting scientific data. Combined with other information sources, this solution allows us to enrich our bibliographic collections from which we can derive our data and scientific literature analyses," explains Odile Solich, responsible for monitoring activities at the Institut Pasteur de Lille.
Scopus contains more than 56 million records and 21,900 titles from 5,000 international publishers covering scholarly content in all disciplines: science, technology, medical, social sciences and arts and humanities. This added data will significantly strengthen AMI Software and will be directly available, by API, as new data source within the AMI EI platform.
"We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Elsevier," said Alain Beauvieux, CEO of AMI Software. "The agreement demonstrates Elsevier's confidence in AMI and represents a significant evolution in the breadth and value of Knowledge Management and Market Intelligence solutions AMI is able if offer its clients."
"With the wide range of scholarly content that Scopus covers, as well as its additional functionality, we are able to provide valuable insights into research production and impact," said Cameron Ross, Vice President of Product Management, Abstract & Indexing Databases at Elsevier. "We hope to meet the needs of AMI customers so that they can more accurately assess research information available online."
