Elsevier extends ScienceDirect ArticleChoice to academic institutes worldwide

April 24, 2007

Amsterdam, 24 April 2007 -- Following the successful launch of ScienceDirect ArticleChoice to the corporate market in 2005 and government market in August 2006, Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, is now offering the same flexible access option to academic customers.

ScienceDirect ArticleChoice allows a customer to access journal, handbook and book series articles that are outside their current portfolio. Articles can be purchased in bundles (100, 200, and 500), and are available as required. IP access ensures that articles can be downloaded multiple times within 24 hours at no additional cost.

As Marten Stavenga, Global Business Development Manager explains: "Many small university and college libraries cover multiple subject areas and have difficulty acquiring all the information they need at a price they can afford. We feel that ScienceDirect ArticleChoice will offer them the flexible access and pricing options that they need."

The unique flexibility of the product is echoed by Andrea Schweikert, Global Accounts Director Elsevier: "Librarians will have more control over their budgets. They pay upfront for a bundle of full-text articles at a discounted price. In addition, they no longer have to rely on inter library loans because their users will have immediate access to all full-text articles on ScienceDirect right when they need it. ScienceDirect ArticleChoice is a low risk offer for everyone who wishes to extend access to full-text articles without having to expand his/her journal portfolio."
