Partners in research discovery

Publishing houses are partnering on ScienceDirect for efficient research discovery 

partners meeting

Streamlining peer-reviewed information discovery

As a leading platform, ScienceDirect empowers researchers by expanding the reach of critical publications and connecting them to trusted, relevant answers.

“The literature review is a very time-intensive process. Searching multiple platforms to stay up to date can become overwhelming.”​

Become a research discovery partner

We invite more publishers, including learned societies & associations and university presses to join us.

We strive to ensure that partners will benefit from the increased usage and global discoverability of the research they publish, on a trusted and reliable platform.

From a technical perspective, there is an opportunity to use a shared infrastructure via GetFTR which checks for entitlements. This way researchers can seamlessly connect with relevant articles on ScienceDirect from a variety of publishers. However, GetFTR functionality is not mandatory.

We hope that by collaborating with a growing number of publishers and societies, we learn together how to improve the research ecosystem and, as publishers, promote the shared value of safeguarding trust in science.

Benefits beyond research discovery:

  • Privacy. We are committed to being transparent about what user personal data we have and how it is used. Furthermore, we are determined to ensure that user privacy options are clear and easy to find.

  • Reading and Search History features keep track of the 100 most recent articles viewed

  • Recommendations combine reading history with articles peers have read and Scopus citation data to recommend other relevant information

  • Remote access lets subscribed publications to be read anytime and from anywhere, without being limited to an IP range

Benefits beyond research discovery

Articles from other scholarly publishers have been live on ScienceDirect since January 2022. Read our report for an overview of the results of the project.
