June 19, 2012

AMSTERDAM, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com ], a world-leading publisher of scientific,
technical and medical information products and services, announced that Scopus
[http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus ], the world’s largest abstract and citation database
of peer-reviewed research literature, is interoperable with the Lattes Platform
[http://lattes.cnpq.br/english/index.htm ], Brazil’s national database for research and
science activity, through a newly developed application.

The new Curriculo Lattes Application
[http://www.applications.sciverse.com/action/appDetail/299875?zone=main&pageOrigin=appGallery&activity=display ]
links Scopus to the Lattes Platform providing easier access to the
extensive research author data contained in Curriculo Lattes
[http://lattes.cnpq.br/english/conteudo/aplataforma.htm ], a part of the Lattes Platform,
which contains the resumes of Brazilian researchers, students and technical professionals.

Developed using the Elsevier Application Framework, the Curriculo Lattes App will be
featured on each Scopus Author Details page. Currently 11,000 Brazilian authors in
Curriculo Lattes are mapped to matching Scopus author IDs allowing users to access
relevant profiles easily between the two databases. More Brazilian researchers will soon
be mapped in Scopus and added to the application.

“The link to Curriculo Lattes greatly enhances Brazil’s science research community by
allowing more efficiency, visibility, and connectivity amongst Brazilian researchers,”
said Dante Cid, Director South America, Elsevier Science & Technology. “It is a
significant step in our commitment to collaborate with Brazilian institutions to increase
the international visibility of their research output.”
