Authors' Update

Issue 10 - May 2014

Authors' UpdateWelcome! Not only is this an anniversary edition, our first four articles also share a theme - how to promote research. From the Guest Editorial by Senior Vice President Nicoline van der Linden, to the steps editors can take to highlight your papers, you can discover some of the initiatives available to share your research.

As we celebrate our 10th edition, we also look to the future of Authors' Update - we aim to move away from issues and publish news as it becomes available on a 'new look' website due to be launched later this year. You will also have the opportunity to comment on articles but, in the meantime, you can send your views to our new email address: authorsupdate@elsevier.com.

You can also use this email address to suggest topics we should cover or let us know what we could be doing better - your views are always extremely welcome.

Thank you very much for your interest in Authors' Update and if you'd like to be kept abreast of new issues or news items of interest to researchers, you can join me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
