Elsevier to Include Doyma Spanish Medical Colle...

AMSTERDAM, January 6 /PRNewswire/ --     Elsevier, the world's leading publisher
of scientific, technical and
medical information products and services, announced today that fifty
prestigious titles from the Elsevier Doyma Spanish Medical Collection are
available on ScienceDirect, its online scientific research platform.

    Doyma, the leading Spanish language medical publisher acquired by
Elsevier in 2005, publishes approximately 5,000 high quality papers every
year. The inclusion of Elsevier Doyma titles on ScienceDirect will allow more
researchers across the world to access these articles.

    To date, the Elsevier Doyma collection has only been available through and and the narrow
distribution as well as Spanish language nature of these platforms has
limited access. The thousands of authors represented in the Elsevier Doyma
collection will now enjoy greater market visibility, increasing the potential
for research collaboration and recognition. In addition, many of the articles
will now include English abstracts benefiting non-Spanish speaking

    "The Elsevier Doyma Spanish Medical Collection represents a wide range of
high-quality journals," commented Rafael Sidi, Vice President, Product
Management, ScienceDirect. "We are excited to include these titles on
ScienceDirect giving them more visibility in the global research community."

    The addition of the Spanish Medical Collection follows the successful
launch of Elsevier's Masson French Medical titles early 2008 and contributes
to the evolution of the ScienceDirect platform into a comprehensive and
complete source of global scientific knowledge.
