CSU Libraries now have a new contract with the journal provider Elsevier.
In March 2020, California State University and Elsevier agreed to a two-year renewal contract to periodicals currently made available through the database ScienceDirect. With around 2,000 journals, content focuses on the sciences, but our Elsevier contract does include about one hundred periodicals in economics and about the same number of journals in business. Subscription cost increases were kept to around 1.5%. The contract expires December 2021.
For more information, see this CSU Libraries press release < http://libraries.calstate.edu/csu-elsevier-renewal/ >.
