Elsevier and Pirate Sites

Elsevier Acts Against Research Article Pirate Sites and Claims Irreparable Harm

David Glance | June 16, 2015

The academic publisher Elsevier last week filed a complaint against two web sites who it accuses of pirating its academic articles and other publications and offering them up to the world for free.
Elsevier is responsible for 25% of the world’s market for peer-reviewed academic publications published in journals that include The Lancet, New Scientist, LexisNexis, and Cell. It also provides a way for students, academics and other researchers to search for publications through a product called ScienceDirect which offers access to information and content of 2,500 journals and 26,000 book titles.
