NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Scientific publisher Elsevier said today that it will partner with bioinformatics firm NextBio to enhance the content in its ScienceDirect journal collection.
Under the terms of the partnership, NextBio will integrate its ontology-based semantic tools and its collection of public data with ScienceDirect. The integration will enable researchers to search ScienceDirect "together with publicly available research data from PubMed, clinical trials, experimental data, and news articles, on one single platform."
Elsevier said that this new capability will be available to users later this summer.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
