Elsevier Provides Access to Reaxys® for Five Czech Universities to Optimize their Research in Chemistry

Elsevier, today announced it has provided access to Reaxys, an online workflow solution for research chemists, for five Czech universities: the University of Pardubice, the Masaryk University, the Palacky University in Olomouc, the Tomas Bata University in Zlín and the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno. The 5-year access agreement is supported by the European Structural Funds (ESF) through their Operational Framework Program for Research, Development and Innovation.

“The Czech Republic does not have an optimal solution to support the need for sustainable access to high quality global scientific research information for all its universities,” said Prof. Ing. Miroslav Ludwig, CSc, Rector of the University of Pardubice. “Funding from European Structural Funds to help secure access to basic information infrastructure in chemistry, chemical engineering and other related fields connected with sustainable development, opens doors to change this situation”.

Ms. Prochaskova, project coordinator of the Chemical Electronic Information Resources for R&D project at the University Pardubice said, “Reaxys’ content includes some of the most important information resources for chemistry and related fields. We are very pleased that access to Reaxys forms an essential part of the project and has been secured for these five Czech universities for the next five years.”

Lucie Vavrikova, Elsevier’s Country Manager for Czech Republic added, “We are very happy to support these universities by providing them with access to Reaxys. It is also worth mentioning that financing from the European Structural Funds to expand access to electronic resources such as Reaxys could also support other Central and Eastern European countries in their desire to improve their research performance.”

Reaxys is a unique workflow solution for researchers across all chemistry related domains. It is a key pillar of Elsevier Life Science Solutions, a suite of interoperable, domain-specific workflow solutions.
