ScienceDirect - November 2011

30 October 2011 :

ScienceDirect already covers around one quarter of the world’s full-text scientific, technical and medical (STM) literature published in 24 fields of science, and continues to deliver new programs of high-quality online content that researchers need for their work. ‘Articles in Press’ are available to give researchers the advantage of access to articles on average 15 days after they are accepted for publication, before appearance in the print journal.

At this moment in time, ScienceDirect offers over eight million full-text articles from over 2,000 peer-reviewed journals, as well as a growing range of authoritative books, including reference works, handbooks and book series. There are over 50 reference works, over 150 book series titles and over 164 handbooks volumes now online, with at least 10 reference works added each year. In 2007 4,000 ebooks will be added to ScienceDirect. The ScienceDirect books collection covers the core disciplines of life, physical and social sciences and are fully linked with journal articles, giving scientists a broader perspective of their area of study.
