Elsevier journals

There were some anxious moments this fall when we thought we might lose access to our 2,000+ Elsevier ScienceDirect journals. The publisher’s pricing model was changing and the subscription costs were increasing considerably for 2016.

So you’ll be pleased to know that Elsevier ScienceDirect is still available through Andersen Library. Given the high usage (more than 41,000 articles downloaded at UWW last year), our campus and UW System administration felt strongly that we needed to continue this subscription to support the research and teaching of the University.

Some eleventh hour negotiating and a generous contribution from the UW System administration will help us continue our subscriptions without interruption through 2020. The five-year deal still extends our journal access back to 1995 and actually gives us ownership of 23 Elsevier titles, including:

Seven other UW campuses were also able to get in on this deal. The ScienceDirect interface will remain the same and the suite of 2,000+ titles will be nearly identical. ScienceDirect includes 4 databases: Physical Sciences & Engineering, Life Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences & Humanities

You may access ScienceDirect on the Library’s Articles & Databases page. And you’ll be able to search for articles through Research@UWW.
