Enhanced upload tool
The Enhanced Upload Tool in the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) is specifically designed to facilitate the upload of large files, like those explained above.
CiteAlert is an initiative from Elsevier, which notifies authors by email when their articles are cited in Elsevier articles on ScienceDirect, offering them insight into how their work has influenced that of other researchers.
Article of the Future
The Article of the Future is now live on SciVerse ScienceDirect. This is an ongoing initiative aiming to revolutionize the traditional format of the academic paper in regard to three key elements: presentation, content and context. The 2 pane navigation and presentation features were released on January 7th. Mid 2012, the final part of the 3 pane format (contextual discipline-specific applications) will be added along with further improvements.
