The SSC’s portfolio of online and printed journals includes around twenty journals specialising mainly in the fields of education and university research, evaluation, and science and innovation policy. The special collection from 2010 onwards is only available to council members and SERI employees. Journals dating before 2010 are catalogued in the Alexandria Library Network and accessible to the public.

SERI employees may, at any time, place orders for articles and apply for new subscriptions with the SSC’s Information Service. The Information Service also supports projects and research for the Science Council’s working programme, providing a continuous selection of and access to scientific articles from the portfolio.
