Content Innovation

Discover powerful ways to present your work in Earth & Planetary Sciences

There are a lot of ways to enrich your article and present your work to your readers in an engaging, interactive way. Elsevier offers a range of free options to include interactive data visualizations with your article, connect your article with other valuable resources on the web, and describe and share your research using multimedia formats.

You can enable Content Innovation features to appear with online articles when you submit your paper or at the revision stage. This will help your readers to discover more of your research, and understand your work better than would be possible with just static visuals or text – thereby helping you to make an impact!

Options include:

Interactive Plot Viewer

Show the plot and share the data. Interactive plots provide easy access to the underlying data uploaded as a .csv file. Let readers switch between plot and table view, download data or hover over data points to see the value.

Interactive Map Viewer

Let your readers explore annotated geospatial information on an interactive (Google) map. You can enable this by including a KML or KMZ file with your article submission to selected journals.


AudioSlides are short, five-minute presentations in which you can explain your paper in your own words. Using the authoring tool, you can upload slides and record voice-over to present your research story. You can share it on your website and social media to draw attention to you work.

PANGAEA Linked Data

If you have supplementary data sets for the article deposited at the PANGAEA data repository, this feature will automatically present bibliographical details and the field of study of supplementary data sets to the reader.

Database Linking Tool

This application links your article to data in supported external data repositories, giving readers one-click access to that data.

V MscopeVirtual Microscope

Authors of selected Elsevier journals are invited to complement conventional (low-res) slide images in their papers with high resolution whole slide scans. The Virtual Microscope offers features such as zoom, pan and rotate for convenient access to slides at the highest resolution.
