Ethics in Research and Publication
Make valuable and lasting contributions to the health and future of society. Understanding the ethical boundaries in scientific research and publishing is a key step in making sure your work gets off to the best start. From there, anything's possible. The Ethics in Research & Publication program is the collaboration of an independent panel of experts in research and publishing ethics and Elsevier.
Access to quality research is vital to the scientific community and beyond. We support sustainable access and work hard to provide a range of open access options alongside our access initiatives to ensure everyone can read, use and trust the latest research.
We are committed to working in partnership with the research community, librarians, funders and other stakeholders. Our Elsevier team is continually on the road meeting the community, participating in discussions and establishing partnerships which will help support increase access to research.
