New look for Science Direct

  • Science Direct has been redesigned to have a simpler look. It is possible to do a simple search from the front page. However, one of the features valued by students is the ability to get full text straight away. To make sure you only retrieve articles available at Swansea you need to use the Advanced search.

    This will allow you to see more search options including the ability to select only subscribed publications and freely available open access ones.

    You can also see an option for My Favorites.  If you are interested in searching particular journals you can select them as favorites. To do this you need to login even if you are on campus.  If Swansea University is not showing as below, choose Other Institution login then UK Access Management Federation and select Swansea from the list. You can then login with your usual username and password.

    To make journals into favourites, click Journals in the green bar at the top of the screen. Click on each journal you are interested in and you will see
    You can then choose to search just your favourite journals.
