Science Direct:

This is a system through which we purchase full-text documents of non-contracted titles (non-subscription journals), which Elsevier publishes in electronic journals and eBooks on ScienceDirect. Documents 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 the year's usage will end. This is a shared budget for the entire university. If you have enough time, please use “ILL (document photocopy)”.

★In order for many people to use it fairly, please refrain from using it in large quantities—at most about 50 documents per person for three months.
★Check the following before downloading.

Is it really necessary?
―― Let's check the contents as exactly as possible by reading the abstract.

Is it an urgently needed thesis?
―― Document photocopies take about a week to order, but the price is quite inexpensive. Click here for how to use the system.
―― If the document you want is part of a book, we may be able to purchase it.
Please consult the library.

Is there a booklet in the collection?
―― We may have a booklet in the library. Check by journal search or OPAC. 

Have you downloaded it before?
―― It is uneconomical to download the same paper over and over again. With document management software, let's brush up collection and management skills. Click here for bibliographic-management software.

★Please refrain from downloading all chapters of an eBook. You will be charged for each chapter.
★Please follow the guidelines of using electronic materials.
―― If there is an illegal act, such as a mass download, the service will be suspended without notice.
★Please do not violate copyrights.
―― Use of downloaded documents is limited to the user only. They cannot be duplicated or distributed.
★User ID and password are for individual users. Please manage it strictly.
★Some titles are not eligible for transaction. Click here to check un-eligible titles.

Please be aware of the above and take advantage of Transaction.
