AudioSlides

AudioSlides - a free service to authors

These are brief, webcast-style presentations based on slides and audio that are shown next to the article on ScienceDirect. This format gives authors the opportunity to explain their research in their own words and promote their work.


Open access options

Open access lies at the core of Elsevier’s publishing mission – in fact, today, more than 90 percent of the journals we launch are gold OA and over 1,900 of our subscription titles offer gold OA options. That means finding the right open access home for your research is easy.

Whatever route you choose, publishing with Elsevier means your work benefits from the input of expert editors and reviewers. And if you publish gold open access, it is immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download from ScienceDirect. Our gold OA titles also feature in major indexes and databases.
