Elsevier Inc. Key Developments

Humboldt-Innovation GmbH and Elsevier Collaborate in New Advanced Data & Text (HEADT) Centre

Humboldt-Innovation GmbH and Elsevier announced the launch of the Humboldt Elsevier Advanced Data & Text (HEADT) Centre. The HEADT Centre brings together experts from Elsevier and researchers from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin to explore innovative ways to better serve the needs of researchers, practitioners and other members of the scientific community in order to reduce barriers to mining content and to identify research misconduct. The Centre wants to enhance basic research in these fields. Two projects will run under the umbrella of this cooperative venture of Humboldt-Innovation and Elsevier. The first project aims to provide scalable computing infrastructures and algorithms to improve computer-aided discovery, enhancing the efficiency of text and data mining (TDM). The project is led by Johann-Christoph Freytag, Professor for Databases and Information Systems at the Humboldt-Universität with support from Dr. Flavio Villanustre, Vice President of Technology Architecture and Product for LexisNexis and leads the High Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC) Systems at Elsevier. The second project will focus on research integrity issues such as plagiarism, image manipulation, data falsification and fabrication, which pose important problems for researchers, universities and publishers alike. This project is headed by Professor Michael Seadle, Director of the School and Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities I at Humboldt-Universität. He is supported by Dr. IJsbrand Jan Aalbersberg, Senior Vice President of Research Integrity at Elsevier. The two projects of the HEADT Centre will run over a three-year period and will be managed by Melanie Rügenhagen. The institute plans to launch additional research projects in collaboration with partners from the international science community.

Elsevier and ICPSR Announce Data Linking

Elsevier and ICPSR announced that they have implemented two-way linking between research articles and datasets. Over 400 Elsevier journals will offer direct linking options with datasets in ICPSR. These behavioral and social science datasets become discoverable through corresponding research articles on ScienceDirect. This allows researchers to access underlying research data immediately while reading the research paper, and potentially reuse the data for their own experiments. Vice versa, research articles on ScienceDirect can also be accessed directly from within the ICPSR datasets providing additional information to place the data into context. ICPSR stores, curates, and provides access to scientific data so others can reuse it or validate research findings. ICPSR maintains over 9,200 studies associated with nearly 73,000 datasets representing over 40 scientific fields and disciplines. Linking these datasets and corresponding documentation to the articles using these data for analyses is critical in the effort to support research transparency and encourage additional research discovery.

Elsevier Launches 41st Edition of Gray's Anatomy

Elsevier announced the launch of the 41st and latest edition of Gray's Anatomy: The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Practice. The 41st edition also includes a widely expanded, interactive Expert Consult e-Book version, which includes ancillaries such as an Image Atlas, topical commentaries and video catalogue. Gray's Anatomy 41st edition reflects the very latest understanding of clinical anatomy from field leaders worldwide. Its traditional artwork and clear text has been further honed and enhanced, while major advances in imaging techniques and the newest insights they bring are fully captured in x-ray, CT, MR and ultrasound images. The completely reconfigured accompanying eBook version is enhanced with additional content and media, covering all the body regions, cell biology and embryogenesis.
