Pilot brings ScienceDirect content to MyScienceWork users

Share this on social media:

Elsevier is collaborating with scientific social network MyScienceWork on a pilot initiative to enable researchers to share and discover over 11 million articles through MyScienceWork.

The pilot promises to allow MyScienceWork users to read, annotate and share ScienceDirect articles amongst each other within the MyScienceWork interface. The articles on MyScienceWork will be presented the same way as users find them on ScienceDirect: full text published articles will be available to those affiliated with ScienceDirect subscribers and open access articles will be available to all, says the publisher.

The pilot includes access to all of the content on ScienceDirect: over 12 million content items from over 2,200 journals and 26,000 book titles.

'MyScienceWork works to make science easier and to help researchers save time. We want to provide researchers with wider access to publications. This includes promoting access to openly accessible content, but also developing new ways to easily reach publications from prestigious journals,' said Virginie Simon, CEO of MyScienceWork. 'That is why, for users with institutional access, they can log in directly to the platform using their Science Direct access codes.'
