Ukraine academic support page FAQs
Elsevier is making key research and funding support tools as well as eLearning platforms freely available to Ukrainian academics, researchers and students. We are offering temporary, complimentary access to ScienceDirect, Scopus and Researcher Discovery; we’re also offering article publishing charge (APC) waivers.
Our license explained
Upon registering using the unique registration form link sent to you, you will be redirected to a resource page featuring all necessary information needed to access the tools and resources. You will be granted a free license to use the resources and solutions presented on the resource page.
Only Ukrainian university-level academics and students are eligible for this program. This includes PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. The program is not currently available to non-Ukrainian nationals, corporate groups or non-university level students.
Elsevier cannot currently provide peer review and editing services to authors in Crimea, and the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, since it can only publish “journal/book-ready” works by prospective authors in these jurisdictions.
If you are a Ukrainian clinician or medical student, we have made similar access to our content and tools available here. If you are not eligible for this program, we have many other access programs such as Research4Life(opens in new tab/window), our Covid-19 Information hub and programs for students and patients.
This is an individual license for your research only. You must keep your password secure, and you may not share it with others. The program does not allow you to access APIs or to bulk download content. We reserve the right to inactivate your account if there is evidence of automated downloading or other illegitimate use.
Elsevier makes no warranties regarding the availability of these resources or solutions or their suitability for any particular purpose.
You may already be registered for some of the available Elsevier resources and services through your institution’s license. If you are able to access resources through your institution’s license, please do so. If you re-register through this program you may lose your search history and personalization.
Please use your academic, institutional, or corporate email account for registration. There may be delays or further accreditation necessary if you use a non-institutional email account.
If you register without an institutional email account, we may ask you for endorsement by a department head listed on the institution's public website through her/his institutional email account.
Some of our solutions have limitations on the number of users they can support. We want to ensure that the resources as a whole are reserved for bona fide researchers and that systems have enough capacity for them to productively conduct their work. While we recognize that there are many excellent researchers outside of traditional academic, government and life science institutions, accrediting these researchers is much more difficult.
No, we will not send you any marketing materials. We will only use your email for notifications about your work on the Ukraine Academic Support page.
