It’s no secret the UK punches well above its weight in research and innovation, and Elsevier is proud to serve its research community. The UK accounts for just 2.5% of the world's R&D funding and 4% of the world's researchers, but nearly 7.% of the world's research articles and 14% of the most highly cited articles.

As a publisher of quality research with 2,600+ journals — and as an information analytics provider — Elsevier is committed to supporting the UK's knowledge economy and research base.
