Big news for post-docs: Free Access Program is now permanent

Jiawei Yang's picture

Since 2012, Elsevier has been periodically offering free access to scientific content to support young scholars in between jobs or looking for their first postdoctoral position. Qualified applicants were granted six months free access to all our journals and books on ScienceDirect and were able to use this access to work on grant applications and research projects.

Because of the response, we decided to make the application process ongoing. In addition, participants who do not find a position after the first six months can request an extension of their access for a further six months.

How to get free access

To qualify, candidates must complete a form verifying their credentials. Once approved, they will receive a personal code allowing access to ScienceDirect.

Qualifying criteria:

  • You have been unemployed for 1 year or less by the date of your application to the program.
  • Or you have a project ending less than 6 months after the date of your application.

And

  • You have received your PhD 5 years or less before the date of your application.

For more information and to apply, visit elsevier.com/postdocfreeaccess.
