Elsevier for U.S. government agencies

Elsevier is proud to help government agencies and professionals advance healthcare, foster open science discoverability and improve research performance for the benefit of humanity. Combining authoritative, peer-reviewed content with robust technology, we turn information into actionable knowledge that empowers decision makers.

What we offer

Today, Elsevier is engaging next-generation and experimental AI-based semantic analytical technologies. These include a comprehensive, multi-layered ontology called Omniscience and a technique for analyzing the entire corpus of research using semantics and direct citation analysis. The results are calculations of approximately 100,000 scientific topic clusters on specific research questions from around the world.

In addition to being the largest publisher of STM peer-reviewed literature, our analytics and digital tools support strategic research management, R&D performance, clinical decision support, and professional education through:

Research impact, engagement and collaboration

Identify and analyze existing and potential collaboration opportunities based on publication output and citation impact with a balanced, multi-dimensional view for assessing published research.

A comprehensive suite of research metrics at the journal, article, author and institutional levels is embedded throughout Elsevier’s Research Intelligence portfolio to help facilitate evaluation and provide a better view of research outcomes.

Tools to support agency compliance

Manage and showcase everything your agency produces to increase visibility and impact.

Digital Commons is the only platform that combines Inst7tutional Repository (IR) functionality, commercial-grade open access publishing, and seamlessly integrated faculty profiles—all fully hosted, with unlimited storage and unlimited support.

Benefits for research managers

Pure collects and validates research information in one place and in real time. Research managers, research administrators and research development professionals are often required to track and analyze this information. Pure makes it easy for them to do so through flexible reporting and dashboards.

  1. Track, monitor and manage the grant lifecycle.

  2. Get the complete picture of individual projects. with user-specific overview screens

  3. Get a panoramic view of research collaboration.

  4. Identify experts.

  5. Help achieve performance goals by defining targets and tracking research progress over time.

  6. Save time preparing returns for national assessment exercises.

  7. Build tailored reports to analyze the achievements of researchers, teams, departments or custom-defined groups.

The Pure community module:

  • helps boost regional economic growth by facilitating strategic partnerships between local universities and between businesses and local universities

  • promotes the research, assets and expertise within the region to attract R&D-driven businesses

  • provides businesses with an easy way to locate academic expertise for innovative research

Increase agency visibility ofand access toother resources

Compile the latest data and research on the environment, health & safety, defense, the economy and others - all in a single source.

Engineering Village uses controlled indexing and classification so researchers can retrieve relevant results, providing a vital resource for identifying the latest government developments and research trends from conference proceedings, dissertations, technical standards, trade magazines and others. It is ideal for supporting any engineering research initiative at academic institutions, corporations and government agencies.

  • Subscribers access 12 valuable engineering databases to advance their research, influence stakeholders and keep abreast of breakthroughs most relevant to their critical initiatives.

  • The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) database is the premier source of unclassified reports from US and international government agencies, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the United States Department of Energy and Defense, the Japan Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the United Kingdom Department of Trade.

Reaxys provides rapid and easy access to experimental facts to empower chemistry research, chemical discovery. It is also the leading database for bioactivity data.

  • Find state-of-the-art routes to synthesize molecules with superior properties and discover novel molecules with improved activities against specified targets.

  • Stay current with updates on new chemistry publications and patents

  • Find the most reliable vendors of starting materials and intermediates

  • Search integrated in-house and external data

We can help you mine text from scientific documents—including publication abstracts, funding announcements and awards, project summaries, technical papers, patent abstracts, proposals, applications and other sources—to create an index of weighted terms.

Elsevier offers an intelligent, AI-driven semantic search and categorization platform based on the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine® (FPE), a text-mining toolkit that successfully powers projects at both Government agencies and Elsevier itself, including Pure. The Fingerprint technology applies a variety of natural language processing (NLP) techniques to mine text from scientific documents and create an index of weighted terms - the “Fingerprint Index” - which defines that text. These representations are ideal for visualization, semantic search, ranking and recommendations and categorization, all of which help to optimize information processes across an institution or government organization. Recent releases of Elsevier’s Fingerprint technology have featured improved processing speed and machine learning techniques to accurately mine increasing volumes of text.

By combining Elsevier’s Fingerprint technology with state-of-the art supervised machine-learning algorithms, Elsevier offers a platform that automates the assignment of various categories to text assets. This includes research grant descriptions or publications with categories from the Common Alzheimer Disease Research Ontology (CADRO). This platform embraces existing labeled datasets to produce fingerprints and infer a classification model. This model can be used to categorize subsequent content correction and training modules, which enables users to improve performance or to build a text classification capability for a specific use-case from scratch.

Latest news & updates

The launch of this new initiative, Engineering Research Visioning Alliance (ERVA)opens in new tab/window, will serve as a force multiplier for high-impact research on society’s grand challenges. Managed by UIDP and funded with a five-year, $8 million award from NSF, ERVA will convene engineering voices to prioritize topics for innovative research that both benefits society and leads to a more secure and sustainable world.

New Data Source for Indicators Expands Global Coverageopens in new tab/window

The bibliometric indicators in Science and Engineering Indicators 2016 are based on Elsevier's Scopus database. This is a change from the bibliometric data set used in earlier volumes of Science and Engineering Indicators, which used a subset of Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index (SCI) and Social Science Citation Index (SSCI). This change in data sources is accompanied by several methodological changes intended to simplify the interpretation of the data and increase the cross-field and cross-country comparability of the data.

Novel Coronavirus Resource Directory

To support the extraordinary efforts of the health and research communities combatting coronavirus, we have created a range of free resources, including evidence-based clinical guidance and more than 41,000 research articles to read, download and data mine. This directory provides a complete overview of these resources.

Author workshops and virtual STEM researcher workshops

Publishing events for researchers, covering all of the basics of scholarly publishing. All workshops are now online webinars. Keep your constituents engaged and connect with experts in the publishing world.

The workshops are designed for everyone working in STEM, from early career researchers to postdocs and advanced career researchers, to share best practices in discovering scientific literature, getting their work published in journals and becoming a peer reviewer. We can tailor any course or courses to specific groups of people and focus on only topics relevant to them.
