Introducing the Elsevier special issue browse tool

Authors might not realize that publishing their paper in a special issue can increase the impact of their research. Curated by high-profile guest editors, special issues provide an opportunity to take a deep dive into emerging trends and new discoveries. Articles published in special issues are often cited more frequently than articles published in regular issues, attracting 10% more citations than articles published in regular issues within the first 24 months of publication.* With so many journals to choose from, and new special issues being announced in different networks all the time, it can be difficult to become aware of opportunities. How do you avoid missing out on participating in an issue that could really boost your career? Enter the Elsevier call for papers browser…!

The new call for papers pageS’ouvre dans une nouvelle fenêtre has been developed to make it easier for authors to find special issues that align with their research. Authors can browse a list of upcoming special issues and can quickly review the entire list of special issues that are open for submissions. They can also filter using keywords, and refine the list further by domain and/or subdomain.
