EBSCO has announced a partnership with Elsevier to offer individual ejournals to academic and government institutions in locations throughout the world. This offering, made possible through E-Select: E-journals from Elsevier, is designed for institutions with small print journal collections.
Specifically designed for individual-title online access, E-Select: E-journals from Elsevier provides full text access to more than 1,300 titles in the areas of social sciences and STM. It also includes access to a backfile of subscribed content dating back to January 1995. Additionally, researchers have the ability to search all articles available on the ScienceDirect platform, including access to nearly eight million abstracts. They can also set up alerts to notify when new issues are available electronically (often prior to print). Individual password access is available for up to five unique users. Users also have unlimited viewing, downloading, and printing from the journals to which the institution subscribes.
