Document Download Manager

Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform has partnered with QUOSA to introduce the Document Download Manager. This enables researchers to download multiple full-text articles simultaneously. QUOSA is providing the Download Manager technology.

The new feature allows researchers to initiate the download of up to 20 PDF versions of full-text research articles from any results list with much fewer clicks. For example, downloading five articles is said to only take seven clicks now instead of 21. The Download Manager also enables researchers to automatically name downloaded full-text articles according to their own naming convention and pre-select a preferred destination for downloads.
