A new artificial intelligence tool named Scopus AI has been launched by scientific information provider Elsevier to help researchers efficiently summarize, analyze, and navigate through scientific literature.
Developed and tested over the past months with thousands of researchers worldwide, Scopus AI combines Elsevier’s extensive Scopus literature database with responsible AI capabilities. Scopus contains metadata and citations for over 27,000 academic journals and 1.8 billion citation links.
The key features of Scopus AI include automatically generating expanded summaries of research topics while minimizing false information, identifying foundational and highly influential papers, and recommending leading experts on user queries.
According to Elsevier’s Maxim Khan, Scopus AI aims to “accelerate understanding of new research topics, provide deeper research insights, identify relevant research and experts in a particular field” thanks to its basis in the trusted Scopus database.
Initial researcher feedback on the tool has been positive. Dr. Elisenda Aguilera of Pompeu Fabra University in Spain noted Scopus AI provides an intuitive interface and “allows the researcher to obtain an overview of a problem” as well as “more agile search” than conventional methods.
Scopus AI is the latest product from Elsevier utilizing AI and machine learning to aid scientific research. The company said responsible and ethical AI as well as data privacy are key priorities during its development.
The launch of Scopus AI represents a continued integration of advanced AI with Elsevier’s vast scholarly data resources to facilitate academic discovery and progress.
