Elsevier supports the general principle that raw research data should be made freely available to all researchers and encourages the public posting of the raw data outputs of research. (Note that this is distinct from charts, tables, etc., included in an article, in which rights would be transferred or licensed to Elsevier as part of the article in the same way as text, illustrations or photographs.)
Elsevier therefore does not claim rights in the raw datasets that may be submitted with an article, and these may be made freely available by the author from other (web) locations.
If supported by the author and journal editor, where a dataset is hosted in a data repository that ensures data integrity and supports long-term preservation and inward linking, Elsevier can further support the discoverability of that dataset by connecting it with the published journal article on SciVerse ScienceDirect through linking from an article or entity or through article interoperability, as explained in this presentation.
