Research Intelligence for the Research Community

For 140 years, we have worked with the research and scholarly community to curate and disseminate authoritative knowledge. On this journey together we have seen the paradox of a research ecosystem that is increasingly competitive and collaborative as it advances society and drives economic growth.

Within this global, interdisciplinary and resource-constrained environment, you need to make evidence-based decisions to ensure research thrives. Elsevier solutions provide actionable insights from high-quality, structured data and information; advanced analytics; and an array of indicators and metrics. With these insights you can analyze your distinctive capabilities — as well as the global research and funding landscape — to further your research programs, funding and impact.

Research Intelligence solutions infrastructure

The research future will increasingly embody principles of open science and scholarship to drive innovation and impact. Elsevier solutions are designed to enable research that is open, collaborative and reproducible. We work with the community to develop and promote open standards, including FAIR Data Principles and TOP Guidelines. And we are entering transformative agreements, such as the partnership on a range of national open science services with Dutch research institutions.

Many within the Elsevier team have research backgrounds and are keen to push the boundaries of current practice. They collaborate on research initiatives and connect with a broad spectrum of the research community in multiple forums to stay abreast of your challenges. Our solutions continually evolve based on this input and understanding of the dynamic needs of research leaders, librarians and information managers, funders and researchers.

Research Leaders

From strategy to operations, research leaders should have a clear view of their organization and the world of research to make choices about where their institution is going to compete. Elsevier solutions deliver data-driven insights that complement your own knowledge and expertise so you can identify and secure researchers, collaborators and funding. Make decisions with confidence and position your institution to compete effectively with information and analytics about your research strengths and impact. Combine this internal lens with a comprehensive picture of global research trends and funding, and you have a powerful advantage to advance research performance, rank and reputation.

Librarians and Information Managers

Librarians and information managers work with the research organization to manage research artifacts, showcase research outputs and expertise, and report on research impact and engagement. Elsevier solutions aggregate, disambiguate, structure and connect data and information so that you can query and report with a high degree of accuracy and confidence. And we offer the flexibility and features to support your institutions and researchers to collaborate and disseminate research openly on a range of platforms. For those diving deeper into research evaluation, the International Center for the Study of Research (ICSR) Lab is a cloud-based computational platform for scholarly research that gives access, at no cost, to powerful research metadata and metrics.


The world faces many grand challenges, from climate change to global health crises. Funders worldwide want to invest in research that advances society and drives economic growth, strengthen strategic planning and portfolio analysis capabilities, and better demonstrate the impact of funding. Elsevier solutions can protect your investment in research by helping you to identify global research trends and expertise with the most potential, and to track the impact of the research projects you fund. All with an underlying infrastructure that supports open science and scholarship.


Researchers are highly motivated to solve problems that will benefit society. From beginning research activity to building a research program, researchers’ goals are as varied as their locations and disciplines. Elsevier offers solutions at each stage to help you discover, assess and organize research; publish on a range of platforms; and track your engagement and impact with an array of indicators and metrics. We surface rich connections between people, published ideas and organizations, so you can easily view collaboration and funding patterns, and find international, interdisciplinary and commercial collaborators. Regardless of discipline, researchers are seeing the growing importance and intensity of research data. Elsevier solutions give you control to make your research data accessible, reusable and citable.
