“Supporting societies is an important part of our mission, and we achieve this through a variety of means – direct publishing relationships with over 500 societies and third parties worldwide, affiliations, grants from the Elsevier Foundation and sponsorship of important society events such as the BAM reception” said Diane Cogan, Publishing Director for Elsevier’s Social Sciences programme.

Elsevier has forged strong links with the business and management community, and through this type of collaboration demonstrates a strong commitment to furthering the development of research in this field. Elsevier also publishes a wide variety of business and management publications aimed at meeting the needs of students, practitioners and researchers.
