EBSCO Announces Partners for Journal Access

In partnership with Elsevier (, EBSCO Information Services is offering individual e-journals to academic and government institutions in many of its major locations throughout the world. This offering, made possible through E-Select: E-journals from Elsevier (powered by ScienceDirect), is designed for individual-title online access. It provides full-text access to more than 1,300 titles in the social sciences and STM (scientific, technical, and medical) areas. It also includes access to a backfile of subscribed content dating back to January 1995.

Additionally, researchers have the ability to search all articles available on the ScienceDirect platform, including access to nearly 8 million abstracts. Researchers can also set up alerts to notify them when new issues are available electronically (often prior to print). Individual password access is available for up to five unique users. Users can also benefit from unlimited viewing, downloading, and printing from the journals to which the institution subscribes. EBSCO said this option is ideal for institutions with small print journal collections.

Select Online Book Series chapters published prior to 1996 are included in the online archives.

Each collection contains between 50 and 180 journal titles, some chronicled from Volume 1, Issue 1. The online archives are fully searchable by author, article title, keyword, or publication and include HTML title, author, and abstract information; XML references; integrated cross-searching for faster results; and full integration with current related content. All institutions currently holding SpringerLink subscriptions will have free access to the abstracts of all online journal archives as they become available.
