After careful review of the usage and adoption of the 1findr and 1foldr products, Elsevier has decided to discontinue both products and to further focus on improving the user experience of more highly-used resources. These products are no longer available. Please consult Mendeley or Scopus to continue to access high quality, relevant research articles published in peer reviewed journals.

EXPAND your collection using GOLD, HYBRID & GREEN open access

1findr forms an integral part of the OA2020 strategy actively being implemented at the Max Planck Digital Library.” Dr. Ralf Schimmer | Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)


1findr aims to grow into the best and most comprehensive abstract indexing system based on expertly curated content. 1findr starts with the world’s most comprehensive list of refereed journals and contains thousands of journals typically absent from existing collections and discovery systems.

1findr is by far the most cost-effective way to expand your collection. It makes use of 1findr link resolver technology, which means that more than 27 million articles published in peer-reviewed journals are directly accessible for download, for free.

1findr radically reduces the time it takes to locate and download papers published in peer-reviewed journals. With 1findr you will quickly find yourself using fee-based & freely accessible scholarly articles, provided they are published in peer-reviewed journals.
