With the vast quantities of scientific content available for review, users need the most efficient means possible to find a specific book or journal, or gain an overview of a distinct topic. Sometimes they just want to browse and discover content without a definite goal. Elsevier is addressing these varied researcher needs, as well as your efforts to improve the return on your ScienceDirect investment, by introducing new ScienceDirect browse page.

What is the Evolution that has Occurred

Elsevier has recently redesigned the ScienceDirect browse page to increase the discoverability of its publications while improving the overall browsing experience.

The usability of the ScienceDirect browse page has been optimized, with all available publications being listed in alphabetical order whilst allowing researchers to review content by three criteria: subject, access type and publication type.
