2018 Dental Trade and Industry Award 



Elsevier is an information and analytics company and one of the world’s major providers of scientific, technical, and medical information. It was established in 1880.  Elsevier publishes more than 430,000 articles annually in 2,500 journals.  Its archives contain over 13 million documents and 30,000 e-books.  Total yearly downloads amount to more than 900 million.

They work with 22,000 editors in academia, 87,000 editorial board members, and 1,000,000 trusted reviewers. Elsevier publishes the largest share of articles in the highest-impact end of the journal spectrum, as measured by journal Field Weighted Citation Impact (FWCI) . Independent research further shows that, based on the cost per citation, Elsevier’s subscription “is the most cost-effective” of the major publishers. Open science describes a more inclusive, collaborative, transparent future world of research. But a vision requires action. At Elsevier, we’re taking actions to work with our communities to co-create and shape a more open world of research, to improve outcomes and benefit society.
