Create, update, and revise content seamlessly

Elsa automates and simplifies the most tedious parts of the publishing process by formatting your chapter as you write and automatically numbering and re-numbering your table of contents, references, callouts, figures, tables, boxes, and equations. Elsa auto-populates in-text citations and updates references without the need for an external reference manager like EndNote.

Elsevier staff import previous edition content directly to Elsa so you can immediately get started making your revisions.

You have enough to think about so let Elsa help you keep track of key publishing requirements. Elsa’s Publishing Assistant dashboard helps ensure that your manuscript meets submission requirements by tracking key information such as word count, references, figures, borrowed materials and more. The Publishing Assistant updates as you write and is accessible to all chapter members at any time to help everyone stay on the same page.
