For scholars who recently received their PhDs and currently do not have a research position, Elsevier is pleased to offer unlimited complimentary access to all our journals and books on ScienceDirect, for up to 12 months. This program allows those who qualify to have access to scientific journals and books in their field. To find out if you qualify, here's what you need to do:
  • Step 1: Complete the 3-part application form; it will take you about 10-15 minutes.
  • Step 2: You must submit a scanned image of a letter from your last academic mentor/advisor that states the position you have held and the date on which your position ends or ended and explains why you would be eligible to receive free access to ScienceDirect. The letter must be on official letterhead stationery of the department or host institution. We recommend that you first obtain this letter and create a scanned image file of it before completing the form.
