As part of Elsevier's Corporate Relations department, the Newsroom is the company's main point of contact for media.

Read the press releases

Through the Newsroom we inform media about the latest research papers published in Elsevier journals and bring them in contact with industry and publishing experts. We also help reporters to explore and report on the complex and ever-evolving worlds of science and publishing.

On this page, you will find information about our free access program and newsletter for journalists; you can check our Press Releases to find out all the latest news from Elsevier. If you have any questions or queries about the online publication date for an individual article, please reach out to the Newsroom.

Journalists can also contact the Newsroom to request copies of studies published in our journals to aid their reporting.
