ResearchNow uses a 'fingerprint' mechanism to facilitate collaboration between researchers worldwide. A fingerprint is an index of weighted terms visualized according to their weight and is built using the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine. It mines research output abstracts to define the fingerprint concepts.
A fingerprint can be created for researchers and organisations.
