Science Direct : https://www.sciencedirect.com/

This is a system where we purchase a thesis in full texts of non-contracted titles (non-subscription journals) which Elsevier publishes in the electronic journals and e-books on ScienceDirect. Thesis published in journals not contracted by the library can be obtained through this transaction. All of MPU, faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduate students are welcome to use.


For each download of a paper, a fixed fee (3400 yen) will be deducted from the amount paid in advance by the library. There is no personal burden, but if we use up our prepayment, then this year's usage will end. This is a shared budget for the entire university. If you have enough time, please use “ILL (Document Photocopy)”.
