MIT, Elsevier Offer Free Content

Mar 25, 2008

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) and Elsevier announced an agreement on March 7 to make available figures and text selections from any of Elsevier's more than 2,000 journal titles for use on OCW. As a result, select Elsevier content can now be included within the open access OCW course materials - to be freely downloaded, used, and shared under a Creative Commons license. The Elsevier content includes up to three figures (including tables and illustrations) per individual article (or ten per journal volume) and up to 100 words from a single text extract (or 300 words from a series of extracts).
