About Content Innovation

Timeline for Content Innovation

The content innovation program builds upon the Elsevier Article of the Future (AoF) project, which has been focusing on improving the online article presentation and supporting new types of digital content as well as contextual information. At AoF’s core is the reading experience and the 3-pane view introduced on ScienceDirect, allowing for content-based and contextual enrichments within the article.

Since 2011, the content innovation program has rapidly expanded to include improved online presentation, better support and visualization of digital content, and contextualization of the article by linking with data repositories and other sources of trusted scientific content on the web. In 2014, more than 10 percent of articles published in an Elsevier journal carried a content innovation.

ScienceDirect enables readers to better understand the research presented by the author with interactive graphs, 3D models, and in-article data visualizations. Find out more in this short video how content innovation appears on ScienceDirect.
