How we do it

Research can’t occur in a vacuum. It needs to find its way into the mainstream, where other researchers can evaluate it and, ultimately, use it to enrich their own work.

As a worldwide research collaborative, Elsevier collects the best research available and disseminates it back to the community, where it can do the most good.

The future of publishing

To develop Elsevier's book content, our editorial teams draw on proprietary tools such as SciVal and Scopus to identify research subjects that are strong and growing. To build up our content in those areas, we inform our target authors using global research hotspots. We then refine the content search terms and research output. This process helps us ensure that researchers always have the resources they need, when they need them.
