E-Journals – How to access ScienceDirect titles

The login procedure for ScienceDirect e-journals has changed.

This effects about 30 titles including The Lancet, Burns, JPRAS, & Clinics in Plastic Surgery

If you are searching the A-Z list of e-journals  and find a link that reads “Available in full text from Elsevier in Elsevier Science Direct”  like this:Lancet SD link

Here is what to do next:

1.  Click the link to go to the ScienceDirect home page. At the top right of the page, click Login and then click “Go to Athens / Other Institution  login“.

SD Login

2. At the next screen,  Select “OpenAthens Federation (EduServ)” from the drop down menu and click Go. Then scroll down the screen and select “NHS England” from the list of Institutions.

SD Login select groupSD NHS England

3. If this is your first time accessing ScienceDirect you have an extra step to complete! At the top right of the page it now says “Activate Personalisation”. Click this and complete the form – you must do this before you can access journals.

You may find next time you try to login to a ScienceDirect title the system remembers you and you will automatically be logged in. However, you may also find  an extra link has appeared in the green panel that says “NHS England login” like this:

Science Direct Login

In this case, you can just use this link to login – this will bypass step 2.

If you have any questions or problems logging in please contact the Warner Library team, or your local NHS Library service if you are outside the Mid Essex area.
