is a website which provides access to a large bibliographic database
of scientific and medical publications of the Dutch publisher Elsevier
. It hosts over 18 million pieces of content from more than 4,000 academic journals
and 30,000 e-books
of this publisher.
The access to the full-text requires subscription, while the bibliographic metadata is free to read. ScienceDirect is operated by the British-Dutch publisher Elsevier
. It was launched in March 1997.
The journals are grouped into four main sections: Physical Sciences and Engineering
, Life Sciences
, Health Sciences
, and Social Sciences and Humanities
. Article abstracts are freely available, and access to their full texts (in PDF
and, for newer publications, also HTML
) generally requires a subscription or pay-per-view
purchase unless the content is freely available in open access.
Subscriptions to the overall offering hosted on ScienceDirect, rather than to specific titles it carries, are usually acquired through a so called big deal
. The other big five
have similar offers.
