ScienceDirect and Scopus database have become available again at the University of Debrecen.

Background
From January 2019 Elsevier no longer provided access to ScienceDirect and Scopus databases to Hungarian universities and research institutes.

About the agreement
Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme (EISZ) and Elsevier have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Letter of Intent, as they move towards finalizing a new innovative pilot agreement for research access and Open Access publishing in Hungary.

As a result, Students, Staff and Faculty of the University of Debrecen now have immediate access to ScienceDirect, Elsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature, and Scopus database. Researchers affiliated with EISZ consortium member institutions are able to access 16 million publications from over 2,500 journals published by Elsevier and its society partners via ScienceDirect. In addition, they can publish open-access publications in 1,750 journals at no additional cost.

Further agreements
Currently, the University of Debrecen has an open access and subscription agreement with Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis and Wiley.

Direct access to the databases is available for any registered members at the Library PCs or via off-campus access.
