The recent problem which was experienced when downloading PDFs from ScienceDirect has now been resolved.
It has been discovered that some of our resources are redirecting to a fake Google Analytics page. To determine how wide-spread this problem is, can you please report to library staff if you are redirected to this fake page? If you could include the journal/database title you’re trying to access, that would be very helpful.
An off-campus client trying to download a PDF from ScienceDirect is taken to a guest login page with a request for payment. We are working to resolve this problem as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile, there are some ‘work arounds’ which clients can try:
- Using Internet Explorer as the browser seems to be preferable to Firefox or Chrome;
- Clearing the cache and cookies from the browser offers a temporary solution, but this may need to be done more than once;
- Right clicking on the PDF link of an article and choosing “Open link in new tab” (or equivalent) – this approach works for people using Safari.
The best way to download a PDF from ScienceDirect or SciVerse is to use IE (Internet Explorer) as your browser, because other browsers, such as Firefox and Google Chrome, are not allowing correct access to the journal articles.
We are trying to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
An alternative approach is to clear the cache and cookies from your browser. However, this is a temporary solution and may need to be done more than once.
EDIT: Feedback from a user:
For people using Apple
The following ‘work around’ works for Safari. Open the article in Science Direct; right mouse click the pdf; select ‘Download linked file’; the file should be in your downloads folder.
If you are using a different browser then when you right click select ‘Open link in new tab’ the file opens in a new tab and you can save as normal.
