~ J-STAGE metadata being loaded into SwetsWise Online Content and SciVerse Scopus ~

Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), Swets and Elsevier have come to agreements to load metadata from 119 journals on J-STAGE* to SwetsWise Online Content* and SciVerse Scopus*. Based on the agreements, J-STAGE provides metadata for 103 journals to SwetsWise Online Content and 90 journals to SciVerse Scopus. J-STAGE full text articles, from peer-reviewed Japanese academic society journals, will be searchable and directly accessible from their search results.

J-STAGE is already linked to various databases and search engines such as PubMed, ChemPort, STN, NASA Astrophysics Data System and Google.

The addition of J-STAGE metadata to some of the world’s premier databases extends customer search experience and brings further visibility of Japanese society journals to the academic community.
