Introduction of Researcher Academy

Researcher Academy(opens in new tab/window) is an e-learning platform that attempts to fill this gap through supporting researchers with free-to-access online courses, guides and learning modules. The aim is to provide support through the entire research cycle, from identifying a suitable research topic, finding collaborators and funding, right through to understanding how their research has performed post publication and how to use their article’s performance metrics to improve their chances of obtaining future funding.

What we offer

  • Free training resources used by 500,000 researchers worldwide

  • Dedicated learning content outlined just for your institution, made by your institution and in your own branding and accessible only to institutional members

  • Certificates co-signed by Elsevier and the institution to showcase results and achievements
