Interactive Case Insights

Welcome to Interactive Case Insights - Pilot

Interactive Case Insights transform the traditional case report into an engaging  learning and self-assessment experience designed to help improve physician decision-making and treatment outcomes.

Interactive Case Insights consist of author prepared multiple choice questions ( text only, or supplemented with images ) that enhance conventional case reports.

Authors of selected Elsevier journals are invited to complement case report manuscripts with Interactive Case Insights test questions. Once the case reports are online, test questions are available alongside the case reports enabling an integrated, interactive learning experience.

Interactive Case Reports are fully integrated with ScienceDirect:

Innovating & Enriching Content

For almost 350 years, academic articles have been published in a similar layout – a format which starts with an abstract and ends with a conclusion and a list of references. Articles were presented in this way with the reader of the printed version in mind. However most researchers now access articles online, which means that readership styles and how information is gathered have changed.

We are adapting to these changes because we want to help authors improve how their research is presented online and readers to gain deeper insights faster. Offering Interactive Case Insights is just one of the ways we are doing this.

The Interactive Case Insights functionality enables authors to enrich and extend their article through addition of test / self-assessment questions This feature provides users with an interactive integrated learning experience.
