More than ever, researchers are feeling the pressure to achieve breakthroughs before the competition and help fuel their firm’s growth. As a result, they are finding it vital to access the work and experiences of their peers. That’s why many of them turn to full-text research services to quickly move from idea to innovation. Yet the strengths and gains to be had from one research offering to the next vary greatly.
Martin Akel & Associates conducted a 2008 independent study of researchers worldwide to determine which online scientific/engineering resource they considered best in class. And 87% of ScienceDirect users with access to 16 other full-text services rank ScienceDirect on top.
In an era when researchers are under ever-greater pressure to succeed, ScienceDirect helps them respond to the challenge of maximizing productivity. Researchers turn to ScienceDirect for more than access to the world's largest collection of full-text research articles. They use it to satisfy numerous needs, everything from eliminating the need to search hardcopy journals and not repeating the work of others to accelerating the research process and inspiring innovation, to name a few.
Overall, researchers find that ScienceDirect helps them maximize productivity — and does so cost effectively. In fact, researchers are so productive using ScienceDirect that they integrate it into all stages of the research process.
