Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme (EISZ) and Elsevier have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Letter of Intent, as they move towards finalising a new innovative pilot agreement for research access and Open Access publishing in Hungary. As a result, EISZ consortium member institutions and their affiliated researchers across Hungary now have immediate access to ScienceDirect, as well as SciVal and Scopus.

Researchers affiliated to EISZ consortium member institutions are able to access 16 million publications from more than 2,500 journals published by Elsevier and its society partners via ScienceDirect. Access to Scopus and SciVal will support Hungarian research in benchmarking performance against more than 10,700 research institutions and their associated researchers from across the world.

Further details will be announced following the conclusion of the contracting process, which will facilitate continued reading and support cost neutral open access publishing by Hungarian researchers in Elsevier journals.
