Last year we announced that ScienceDirect would no longer be supporting Internet Explorer 8 as of 1 January 2016. We wanted to make sure you are aware of this and explain why.
In order to continue to make the most of your ScienceDirect experience, we encourage you to move to the latest version of the following browsers:
In 2014, Microsoft announced that it would only support the most recent IE browser version with technical support and security updates. At ScienceDirect, we’ve chosen to follow Microsoft’s lead as we believe this will allow for the best overall user experience as well as allow you to take full advantage of our new features and functionality. We therefore encourage you to update to the most recent version of IE now – or consider another supported browser option.
By upgrading to the most recent version of IE, we’ll be able to provide you with:
  • Enhanced security measures
  • A more responsive design
  • Improved accessibility
