SCIENCEDIRECT is a website which provides subscription-based access to a large database of scientific and medical research. It hosts over 12 million pieces of content from 3,500 academic journals and 34,000 e-books . The journals are grouped into four main sections: _Physical Sciences and Engineering_, _Life Sciences_, _Health Sciences_, and _Social Sciences and Humanities_. Article abstracts are freely available, but access to their full texts (in PDF and, for newer publications, also HTML ) generally require a subscription or pay-per-view purchase.
