Russia's Far Eastern Federal University Selects Elsevier Solutions To Expand Access To Scientific Publications

MOSCOW, November 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Broad access to scientific publications to increase the university's research ranking position

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today it has reached an agreement with Russia's Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) to grant access to ScienceDirect's Journal Backfile Collection and   e-Book Collection as well as Reaxys ® to its researchers. In addition, Elsevier will host two of FEFU's open access journals on ScienceDirect.

FEFU plays a key role in the Russian government's objective to strengthen the economic position of the Russian Far East region. FEFU contributes to this objective by providing its researchers with access to Elsevier's historical journal content (prior to 1995), e-Books and Reaxys, a workflow solution for chemistry researchers, aiming to increase scientific output to become a research hub for the Far East region in Russia and adjacent countries. By also committing to publishing two of FEFU's journals on ScienceDirect through its Production & Hosting (P&H) program, Elsevier aims to help to increase the university's scholarly influence in the global scientific landscape.

Dr. Sergey V. Dubovitskiy, FEFU's Vice President for Strategic Development said, "Building and supporting innovation and research development is impossible without new tools and resources that connect our researchers to global scientific content. By providing expanded access to high quality scholarly information and publishing our own journals online on ScienceDirect, we aim to open doors for new discoveries and international collaboration. With Elsevier's support we hope to reach excellent results."

Igor Osipov, PhD, Regional Director at Elsevier Russia and Belarus added, "We are pleased to continue our collaboration with FEFU which started in 2012 with initial access to ScienceDirect (content from 1995) and Scopus. Today's agreement marks our first Production & Hosting agreement in Russia. We are confident that publishing FEFU's journals on ScienceDirect and providing expanded access to scientific content from ScienceDirect and Reaxys will strenghten FEFU's reputation in the international scientific community."
