How to get Published Guide
The guide has been developed by Elsevier experts to advise researchers, especially PhD students, on how to write academic articles. It also covers other useful topics like publishing ethics, open access options and Impact Factors. Read the guide online.
We understand that some researchers want to make their research easily available and downloadable beyond the academic community. To meet this need, we offer researchers a number of open access publishing choices. These include:
- Open access journals
- Open access articles
- Open archives
- Manuscript posting
We are the first journals publisher to incorporate Google Maps into scientific, peer reviewed articles. The interactive maps help users to visualize the author's data more effectively, in order to gain deeper insights, get a broader overview, and draw conclusions quicker.

The Article of the Future
The Article of the Future is now live on 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.
If you would like to hear more about it, there is a useful explanatory video on the website.
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.
