Elsevier has announced that it is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its online scientific research platform, ScienceDirect.

The tenth anniversary also marks the addition of the ten millionth article to the database, which contains full-text articles and book chapters.

ScienceDirect became fully operational in 2000 when it surpassed one million articles and launched its backfiles initiative, adding literature published prior to 1994.

According to Elsevier, it has since then become the largest and most extensive resource of its kind.

The platform was created to help scientists quickly find the most relevant content for their specific research objectives by offering search, reference and discovery tools.

Institutions worldwide currently offer ScienceDirect to their faculty and students, with up to twenty articles downloaded per second from the platform.
