Results include tables, photos, figures, graphs and videos from trusted peer-reviewed full text sources. Saving researchers significant time, Image Search ensures increased efficiency in finding the relevant visuals.

Search results can be refined by image type and contain links to the location within the original source article, allowing researchers to verify image in context. Researchers can take advantage of Image Search to learn new concepts, prepare manuscripts or visually convey ideas in presentations and lectures. The new feature is available to SciVerse ScienceDirect subscribed users at no additional cost.

"By allowing researchers to delve immediately into the images on SciVerse ScienceDirect, the new feature saves researchers valuable time and offers immediate access to a vast database of trusted visual content," said Rafael Sidi, Vice President of Product Management for Elsevier's SciVerse ScienceDirect. "Developed in response to user feedback, Image Search represents another example of the steps Elsevier is taking to speed scientific search and discovery by improving researcher workflow."
