Helping research managers answer the most pressing questions
Research managers are under constant pressure to optimize their universities’ research performance. In understanding and unpacking new and increasingly complex questions about their university’s research strategy research managers need reliable data and expert analysis.
To help you, we have produced a number of reports: topic-driven examples of the breadth and depth of the analysis that Elsevier can provide on the state of research.
We hope you find them useful.
