Personal Selections for iPad - FREE TRIAL

Personal Selections is being discontinued
We are planning to discontinue the Personal Selections mobile app by the end of 2014. For this reason, the app has been withdrawn from the Apple Store, and no new user accounts can be created. Existing users will be contacted by email in due course with further information.

Introducing Research Highlights
We urge you to download instead the Research Highlights app, also from Elsevier. This new app, launched early in 2014, has been developed better to serve the research community. Unlike Personal Selections, which was available only for the iPad, Research Highlights is available for both Apple and Android devices. It also works on both smartphones and tablets. Functionality too, has been improved: where Personal Selections sourced research from Elsevier journals only, Research Highlights allows you to track your favorite search terms across over 20,000 journals from hundreds of different publishers. It's also FREE! Visit the Research Highlights product page now to find out more and get started.
