The Freedom Collection is available to ScienceDirect Complete academic customers only and offers access to additional non-subscribed Elsevier journal content at a significantly reduced rate. Some titles are not included due to contractual limitations, such as Cell Press, Lancet and Clinics titles, or they are from third party publishers and societies who have opted to exclude their titles.

Freedom collection journals freeze

Every December 1, the Freedom Collection Journals title list is "frozen" for the following subscription year starting January 1. The freeze gives customers clarity and stability because it ensures that new, discontinued or transferred titles are added or removed only at that time.
Freedom Collection Journals pricing is set annually on July 1 to assist you with your budgeting process.

Excluded titles

Some titles are excluded from our discounted packages (including the Freedom Collection Journals) and are available only at the full subscription price because of business model restrictions, legal stipulations, or issues involving electronic rights. The titles excluded are Cell Press titles, The Lancet titles, Seminars, Clinics of North America, third-party-owned titles and some society titles.

Freedom Collection Journals customers pay a percentage extra for the non-subscribed content at a highly discounted rate, but do not have archival rights for those titles. (Note: If an institution desires archival rights, then we suggest selecting another subscription option.)

Subject collections

Subject collections offer a cost-effective way for ScienceDirect Complete customers to gain additional access to deep content in a specific field at a significantly reduced rate.

Included/excluded titles

Not all titles are included in various discounted collections due to limiting contractual arrangements. The Included/Excluded Titles list is subject to change as electronic rights for any given title can change as determined by the publisher or society.

Additional information for existing customers:

Customers who subscribed to Freedom Collection prior to 2013 should retain access to The Lancet, The Lancet Infectious Diseases, The Lancet Neurology and The Lancet Oncology for the duration of their subscription.
