Spend more time writing, less time formatting

Elsa simplifies the most tedious parts of the publishing process by formatting your chapter as you write and auto-numbering your table of contents, references, callouts, figures, tables, boxes, and equations.  Elsa also allows you to see a preview of what your chapter may look like in print. With less time spent on formatting, you can focus on what you do best - writing and disseminating knowledge.

Stay organized

You have enough to think about so Elsa can help you stay organized. With Elsa, you can see all your assignments and their status in one place and view dashboards of chapters and project progress in real time. Elsa’s Publishing Assistant tool helps ensure that your manuscript meets submission requirements by tracking key information such as word count, workflow progress, and accessibility. Elsa's privacy controls also ensure no changes are made to your content while you are working.

Collaborate seamlessly

Elsa centralizes communication so you can easily collaborate with all your publishing partners in one place. Send comments and reply directly in the chapter to co-authors and Elsevier staff, track changes to see who changed what, where, and when, and pass a manuscript to another colleague without worrying about keeping track of versions, edits in emails, or document sharing.

Reach more readers

Connect with more readers through Elsa’s tagging capabilities, which allow you to assign keywords to chapters, thus making your content more discoverable on search engines and Elsevier platforms.
