Abstract: Indicators of academic performance, diversity and inclusion in materials science
With the rapid pace of change in the communication and transfer of science due to technological advances, the role of the Publisher has evolved to encompass modern communication and digital technologies, data science and analytical tools.
Elsevier is constantly adapting its products to a scientific community who not only needs access to the latest articles but also data, software, curation and analytics which will help the processing and gathering of information.
From the scientific community at large, we learned how a diverse, inclusive and geographically balanced composition of our journals and conferences leads to an increase in quality and enhanced creativity.
Materials Science, a booming field of research at the interface of so many disciplines, is an ideal experimentation ground to try new vehicles to foster inclusion in communication, storage, management and access.
During my talk I will show the global trends in Materials Science, highlighting quality indicators and assessing future developments. Overlaying our strategy for growth to new partnerships and innovative projects, I will explain how we aim to become the natural home for all material scientists.
