User Participation

We are working closely with researchers and current users of the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) to make use of Evise both intuitive and enjoyable.

User participation through the Evise User Board

  • 15 Editors of Elsevier journals, representing a variety of disciplines, geographies and age groups, participate in the Evise User Board. They provide ongoing feedback and expert advice to the Evise Product Management team.
  • The Editors meet with the Evise Product Management team once a year to discuss strategic developments and provide early feedback on prototypes.

User participation through validation with users

  • A well-established User Centred Design process is being applied for the development of the user interface and user experience.
  • Authors, Editors, Reviewers and relevant Elsevier staff are regularly interviewed and asked to provide insights on their needs, pain-points, expectations and behavior, as well as providing feedback on prototypes.
  • The international user panel has participants based in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
