Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information announced the introduction of a new offer to provide independent engineering schools with access to two leading engineering information sources in one package.
The Elsevier Engineering School Edition1 combines access to key engineering journals and reference works on ScienceDirect with the specialized engineering search via Engineering Information’s (Ei) award winning Engineering Village. Users can therefore search for scholarly engineering literature via Engineering Village and access peer reviewed full-text content in the physical sciences and engineering titles on ScienceDirect. The reference works, journals and abstracts are all interlinked so that users can access all the engineering information they need quickly and easily.
As Marten Stavenga, Global Business Development Manager for the Academic market at Elsevier explains: “Independent engineering schools have been asking us for an easy and convenient way of accessing the broad range of specialized information which they require but without multiple subscriptions. Elsevier Engineering School Edition is an ideal solution which combines the best of two platforms in one offer. It is a convenient, transparent one-stop-shop for engineering information at a reduced package price”.
Ross Graber, Director of Marketing and Strategy for Engineering Information explains further, “The expectations that employers now place on engineering graduates are similar, regardless of whether a graduate attends a large research institute or a smaller, vocational college. It’s extremely important that smaller institutions can use the same research methods and information resources that are expected of students as they transition into the workplace. The Elsevier Engineering School Edition was developed to provide teaching institutions with the option to work with the high quality information resources which will contribute to their students’ education.”
