The press release below provides information about the agreement between Elsevier and EBSCO Publishing that will bring full-text articles and eBook chapters from ScienceDirect to EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). The full-text searching from SciVerse ScienceDirect will complement subject indexing and abstracts already available in EDS for all Elsevier journals.

ScienceDirect, part of the SciVerse suite of search and discovery products provided by Elsevier, is a leading full-text scientific database with journal articles and book chapters from more than 2,000 peer-reviewed journals and 20,000 books and major reference works. ScienceDirect currently includes more than 10.5 million articles and chapters with nearly 500,000 added every year.

Adding full text searching from Elsevier means EDS now has full text searching for the largest journal publishers in the world. According the EBSCO Publishing President Tim Collins, “the best discovery experience is one that combines full text searching with searching of high quality subject indexing from controlled vocabularies. EDS is the only service with that approach.”

Elsevier joins a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world’s largest scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, Oxford University Press, World Book, ABC-CLIO, and many others.
