Update your browser for better – and more secure – searching on ScienceDirect

Last year, we announced that ScienceDirect would no longer support Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) at the start of this year. Now, we announce that effective January 1, 2017, ScienceDirect will no longer support Internet Explorer 9 (IE9). We are making gradual changes to IE support following Microsoft’s announcement earlier this year about its official discontinuation of Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 (more information can be found on Microsoft’s support page).

To continue to make the most of your ScienceDirect search and discovery experience, we recommend you use the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Internet Explorer version 10 or higher

We like to keep current so ScienceDirect automatically updates to support the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox upon their release (but please note that we do not support Beta or test versions of these browsers).

For best results, we recommend you set the following browser preferences:

  • JavaScript: To access many ScienceDirect features, JavaScript must be enabled for your browser.
  • Cookies: To sign on, cookies must be enabled for your browser. Using cookies lets us provide a more secure method of authenticating your login ID and password.
  • Browser Cache: We recommend setting your browser to “cache (store) page” automatically so images do not have to download every time you visit a page on ScienceDirect.
