About UC Access to Elsevier Journals:
The University of California has been out of contract with Elsevier since January. Unfortunately, in late February the negotiations stalled. In the months since, Elsevier continued to provide access to new articles via ScienceDirect. As of July 10, UC's direct access to new Elsevier articles has been discontinued.
At this time UC no longer has direct access to 2019 articles in Elsevier journals or to the backfiles of some lesser-used journals (download the list). Everything else is still accessible via ScienceDirect.
We currently have access to most articles published through 2018 on Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform.

About the Database:
Elsevier ScienceDirect allows searching of articles from hundreds of electronic journals, plus books and reference works, published by Elsevier and its subsidiaries. Full-text display is available for most journals and for a few of the books and reference works.
