Elsevier Repeats Offer for Free Access to ScienceDirect for Early Career Researchers Impacted by an Uncertain Job Market

“Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that its Postdoc Free Access Program will be repeated, an initiative designed to help early career researchers who are in between research positions stay up-to-date in their field. The global economic climate for science funding is creating challenges for postdoctoral students, especially for those looking for employment. In response to this growing trend, the program was conceived by editors and publishers at Elsevier who began to hear from postdocs in countries where funding has been hit hardest. Many emphasized the mounting pressure to stay competitive and publish, in many cases without the resources to do so.” (via Elsevier)
