Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify knowledge gaps in fields such as toxicology, pharmacology and pharmaceutical science. Editorial teams then strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

The books are available on both the Elsevier Store and ScienceDirect, Elsevier’s full-text scientific database offering journal articles and book chapters from over 2,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 33,000 book titles.
