Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced its collaboration with United Arab Emirates University by providing the university with access to Elsevier's SciVal research management solutions and Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.

"In an effort to be the nation's engine for research development and innovation, UAE University is committed to use unique tools and information technology to help determine its strategy for research development," said Maryam Amir Khan, Director of the Institutional Effectiveness and Planning Support Unit at UAE University. "We consider SciVal and Scopus key tools which will help achieve our university mission to catalyze the application of new knowledge and methodology in research. In order to do so, access to high quality, world-class scientific information and accurate evaluation of our research performance is critical."
