Elsevier also leads a communications task force of publishers and partners to boost the visibility of Research4Life. Projects have included a formal re-branding, films, bylined articles, panel discussions at science conferences, press releases, a website launch and research output press briefings. In addition to communications, colleagues throughout Elsevier are involved in Research4Life task forces on access, authentication, metrics and training.
