Amsterdam, 7 April 2010 - SAE International, a world leader in the development and distribution of engineering information for the mobility industry, is teaming with Elsevier, the world's leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information. Together, the organizations will deliver an extensive unmatched breadth and depth of automotive and aerospace & defense engineering information to better serve the information needs of industrial, research and academic communities worldwide.
Under the agreement, engineers and researchers can access SAE International's more than 20,000 technical papers written between 1906 and 1979, as well as SAE's International's entire library of 88,000 documents utilizing subject-specific indexing and contextualized searching via Elsevier's online solutions Scopus, the world's largest abstract and citation database and Compendex on Engineering Village, delivering 12 million indexed bibliographic citations and abstracts from thousands of engineering journals and conference proceedings.
The ability to index SAE International's content in Elsevier's databases is a monumental development, as now, engineers and researchers can search and retrieve SAE's content in context of other publishers, especially in interdisciplinary contexts, such as O&G (including biofuels, fuel cells, alternative energy), plastics, aerospace, electronics, transportation, HVAC, physics and lubricants.
Martin O'Malley, Managing Director, S&T Corporate Markets, Elsevier, said, "We believe that adding the complete set of SAE papers to our databases, where they can be exposed to a larger, global audience will enhance our users' access to and understanding of automotive and aerospace science."
"This new partnership is an important step forward in expanding SAE International's reach into the global mobility community" says Thomas Drozda, SAE International's Director of Program and Product Development. "By teaming with Elsevier, access to SAE technical information is expanded into many new sectors and industries not traditionally reached by SAE."
