Science into society

View Elsevier's insights into pressing global health challenges, based on data science and bibliometrics

Throughout Elsevier, we share the research community’s belief in what science can achieve. Many of our people began their careers in science and medicine. Elsevier's tools and highly structured content enable a bird’s eye view to assess the research landscape and provide insights. #ScienceIntoSociety is our small contribution to some of the pressing challenges facing human health.

In this spirit, we're putting our own tools and content to task. We apply expertise in data science and bibliometrics to vast quantities of high-quality data, including the peer-reviewed research published by Elsevier and others, to understand the state of research in critical areas of human health. Utilizing sophisticated platforms such as SciVal and Scopus, we identify insights and hi-potential paths for further inquiry.  Our analysts seek to reveal the intersections between science and health with the aim of getting science into society.

Here, you can access collections of recent analyses that have implications for some of the most pressing conditions impacting human health. Check back as we continue to update and add topics.
