Our previous contract has now expired. Despite many months of negotiations the UC and Elsevier have been unable to reach a new agreement. We do not know when Elsevier will cut off direct access to articles through the ScienceDirect platform, but it could be at any time. When they do, this will mean some changes to how UC scholars access current Elsevier journal articles.
We currently have access to most articles published through 2018 on Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform.

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.
