Use Sciverse ScienceDirect to target Materials Science professionals

  • ScienceDirect is Elsevier’s full-text scientific online database offering articles from more than 2,500 peer-reviewed journals, and more than 11,000 books.
  • Elsevier publishes a number of highly acclaimed and influential peer reviewed journals in the materials science field. Access to full text articles is limited to subscribing customers in academia, corporate and government organizations. Guest users are able to browse the journals and read the abstracts of articles.
  • Elsevier now offers an unprecedented opportunity to target highly qualified and very granular audiences through advertising in the subscriber
  • Elsevier’s 192 Materials Science Journals on ScienceDirect have an average of 844,00 Unique Visitors and 6.6 million page views per month.*

Value Propositions

  • For the first time, you can now place banner advertisements adjacent to peer-reviewed content. This has not been possible in journals delivered either in print or electronically prior to now.
  • This invaluable tool allows you to target very highly qualified prospects with a measurable and precise lead generation/branding tool. Online campaign statistics are available, allowing you to monitor, analyse and optimize your campaign based on actual results.
  • On ScienceDirect you can target your advertising on one specific journal or subject category, so you can reach both vertically and horizontally into a specific topic, reaching far more qualified users of our content than you could with a single print journal.

ScienceDirect materials science titles can be selected by subcategory or as individual titles:


  • Biomaterials
  • Ceramics and Composites
  • Electronic, Optical and Magnetic Materials
  • Materials Chemistry
  • Materials Science (General)
  • Metals and Alloys
  • Polymers and Plastics
  • Surfaces, Coatings and Films


The following are the available formats – sample screen shots are above:

  • Leaderboard: 728 x 90 pixels, 40K max file size
  • SkyScraper: 120 x 600 pixels, 40K max file size
  • Large Rectangle: 336 x 280 pixels, 40K max file size

The Leaderboard is available on all journal pages.
The Large Rectangle and Skyscraper are adjacent to full text article content.


Pricing is based on CPM (per thousand impressions), although monthly flat fee pricing is also available.
