They are very important in their sector.

Not much there for the general sites to chew on. That's a good enterprise win for Fast as Elsevier has a storehouse of high quality info that can be indexed.

Elsevier is Dutch ;)
(although it did merge with Reed, now Reed Elsevier)

and is probably the largest publisher of scientific information.

The deal with scirus.com has been around for a long time.

They recently landed Elsevier engineering info:

MDConsult, bibliographic databases, online reference works and subject specific portals

Yup, that is an important company in the information sector. Certainly an interesting partnership for Fast.

Maybe that`s why the Fast stock has risen more than 10% on the Oslo Stock Exchange today? :)

So, with regards to Scirus, should you submit 'science' sites both to Fast and to Scirus?

If not, how does Scirus identify a site which could be termed 'science orientated'?

The biggest name in academic and research publication companies. They publish original and peer reviewed scientific and management/business publications, and went into electronic publishing of these very early. Also secondary publishing/databasing etc.

Their products and services are very expensive and mainly targeted to industry, not consumers - e.g. academic and research libraries, corporate libraries and knowledge bases. So their pricing assumes that a lot of people will read the one copy.

I would guess (but not sure) they are mainly interested in original research-based and content information, backed by research studies and academic qualified researchers.

Researchers and scientists use their products to do secondary research on what research has been done on their topic before.
