Product Highlights

Evidence-Based Ebooks Selection

Your library gains access to a wide range of books on ScienceDirect for a minimal, up-front fee determined by a percentage of the total value of content you choose and access for a full 12 months. Then, you decide which titles to purchase and keep in perpetuity, priced up to the value of the initial content investment and based upon evidence-based usage of the full range of content. This new and flexible Evidence-Based eBook Selection pricing model for online books will help librarians maximize their budget by purchasing only the book content that is used most by their patrons over time.


ScienceDirect's extensive and unique full text database covers authoritative titles from the core scientific literature, including high-impact factor titles such as The Lancet, Cell, and Tetrahedron.

More than 2,500 journals and more than nine million full-text articles are available in ScienceDirect.

College Editions

ScienceDirect College Edition provides smaller academic institutions with affordable access to dedicated subject packages in the physical, social, and health sciences that are complemented by content from online books and pre-1995 journals. Institutions that qualify for the ScienceDirect College Edition: teach on an Associate, Baccalaureate, or Master's level; do not award degrees at the doctoral level; have limited print subscriptions. Eligibility is subject to a review of prior (3-year) subscription history.
