AMSTERDAM, December 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced it has reached an agreement with the Russian Foundation of Basic Research (RFBR) to provide its funding experts with access to Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. Furthermore, an additional 50 RFBR research institutes will receive access to ScienceDirect, Elsevier's full-text platform for research literature.

With a total of 200 RFBR research institutes now having access to ScienceDirect and funding experts having access to Scopus, this one-year license agreement aims to increase the visibility and quality of Russian scientific research. This should further improve Russia's research ranking position and support a more qualified and efficient grant assigning program.

Vladimir Eliseev, RFBR's Director, said, "Cooperation with Elsevier to provide  access to multi-disciplinary abstract and citation database Scopus empowers the Foundation to track citations of scientific articles published with RFBR funds. The obtained data will be an objective indicator of the achievements of Russian scientists; and in the long term can be used in analytical work to identify further areas for funding."

Igor Osipov, PhD, Elsevier Regional Director for Russia and Belarus added, "RFBR is the flagship scientific foundation in Russia and we are honored to continue our cooperation with this next step. ScienceDirect and Scopus offer quality information and guidance to RFBR's efforts to boost cutting edge fundamental research and will help benchmark Russia's scientific output against international results."
