QUOSA acquired by Elsevier
QUOSA was already known by ScienceDirect and Scopus’ users for the PDF download facilities embedded into the Elsevier’s products.
Elsevier’s acquisition of QUOSA marks a continuation of this collaboration which has boosted research productivity for the users of both solutions.
“QUOSA empowers enterprises to share full-text scientific information faster and more efficiently, helping users to get more out of their information while controlling costs, all with one easy-to-use copyright observant solution,” said Malcolm MacKenzie, President and CEO, QUOSA. “Both our customers and the wider research community stand to benefit from the pooling of resources and expertise with Elsevier.”
Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Boston, QUOSA began by targeting the academic and government segments and now also serves a range of corporate customers, including more than half of the Top 25 pharma-biotech companies. Financial details of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
