Click the links below to access the ScienceDirect database and more.


ScienceDirect is a database which provides access to journal articles on science, technology, and medicine.

What is ScienceDirect and how do I deep link to it?

SciVerse's ScienceDirect is a database which provides access to over 10 million journal articles. Its topics fall under four groups: Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences and Humanities.

Deep linking is automatic in ScienceDirect.


1. Click the name of the article you want.


2. The URL in the address bar is your deep link.


Click here to see the deep link to the article "Teaching evidence-based clinical practice to neurology and neurosurgery residents".


If you use the PDF URL as your deep link, it will redirect you to the artice's webpage. It will not work as a deep link to the article as a PDF.
