Wed 17-Dec-08; Access to UM’s ScienceDirect has been resumed. Thank you for your patience whilst we were resolving this.
We regret to inform all users that access to the Science Direct database has been suspended completely by the publisher since 17 November 2008 due to non-payment of their 2008 subscription. As has been informed earlier, the subscription and renewal of all electronic journals have to adhere to the full acquisition procedures instituted by the Ministry of Finance. Different categories of subscription prices (i.e. ≥ RM20K, ≥ RM50K, ≥ RM200K, ≥ RM500K) have to conform to relative levels of the procedure and in this instance, Science Direct costs us more than RM1.5 million for a 12-month subscription. In line with the acquisition procedures, we have to go through several entities for approval and up until today, we are still awaiting approval for payment from the Ministry.
