Access for patients – and other ways to get Elsevier articles without a subscription

We’re updating our list of free and low-cost article access programs, including patient/caregiver access


While there are thousands of articles available via open access publishing, where an author or funder covers the publishing costs up-front so readers don’t have to, what we’re looking at here are free or very low-cost access initiatives – where we make subscription articles freely available for various reasons or provide access to our ScienceDirect platform for certain groups of users.

We have a dedicated page for these programs on the Elsevier website and felt it would be helpful to highlight them together here. As we continue to listen to the research community and the public, we are adding more programs, and you’ll always see the updated list at the link above.

This empowers patients to read free research papers on line. I found a couple of papers of interest.
