Elsevier partners with King Saud varsity
Riyadh, July 14, 2010
King Saud University (KSU) and Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products, have signed an agreement to provide access to a series of scholarly journals from Saudi Arabia.
The first eight journals in chemistry, health science, pharmacology and biological sciences, are now available and additional journals will be added in the near future.
For many years, King Saud University has published English language scholarly journals, both in print and online. Now KSU and Elsevier have formed a partnership aimed primarily at improving the accessibility and discoverability of the KSU journals. The online version of the journals will be accessible through ScienceDirect whilst print issues will be distributed by KSU in the Gulf region.
'The breadth of these journals reaches across our company from fundamental research to clinical medicine,' said Stephen Troth, EVP International Business Development for Elsevier Health Sciences.
'This will tremendously increase the journals' visibility and potential in reaching wider groups of users within the scientific community,' added Professor Khaled El-Rasheid, director of Distinguished Scientist Fellowship Program (DSFP) of KSU.-TradeArabia News Service
