Elsevier to Launch Over 600 Health Science E-Book Titles on ScienceDirect

ST. LOUIS, January 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Increases Accessibility to Market-Leading Health Science Content

Elsevier, the world's leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that over 600 Medical, Veterinary Medicine, and Health Professions book titles will be launched in Health Science eBook Collections in April 2009 on ScienceDirect, its online scientific research platform.

Elsevier's health science books are published under the imprints W.B. Saunders, Mosby, Churchill Livingstone, and Hanley & Belfus, publishers with a rich medical and health science publishing heritage dating back to 1688. The inclusion of these books on ScienceDirect will allow more researchers across the world to access these valuable content resources.

To date, Elsevier's medical and health science book titles have only been available through MD Consult ( for clinical practitioners and medical education, Evolve eBooks ( for health professions education, and Veterinary Consult ( for veterinary medicine education. The thousands of authors represented in the Elsevier medical and health science collections on ScienceDirect will now enjoy greater market visibility, increasing the potential for research collaboration and recognition.

"As part of Elsevier's strategic expansion of its electronic content offerings, we are pleased to offer a wide range of high-quality medical books via ScienceDirect, further expanding the value and breadth of content available on ScienceDirect," commented Linda Belfus, Senior Vice President, Global Medicine, Health Sciences. "This represents an important opportunity for our medical books to achieve greater utility and visibility in the global medical and scientific community, as well as reach new markets."

Linda Duncan, Vice President and Publisher, Nursing & Health Professions, Health Sciences, added "Elsevier's inclusion of books from health science areas such as physical therapy, optometry, and veterinary medicine on ScienceDirect exposes customers around the globe to content they might not readily have been able to access previously."

The addition of the Elsevier Health Science Collections follows the successful launch of Elsevier's Science & Technology book titles late in 2007 and contributes to the evolution of the ScienceDirect platform into a comprehensive and complete source of global scientific knowledge.
