Another Elsevier expansion

Journal giant announces its International Centre for the Study of Research

“Its mission is to encourage the examination of research using an array of metrics and a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods.”

Elsevier adds the centre will help researchers measure the impact of their work. This will also, undoubtedly incidentally, assist Elsevier. “One of the things we’d expect the centre to influence directly is the way metrics are displayed and presented in context – in the platforms and solutions Elsevier provides,” the company’s Andrew Plume suggests.

The European open access Plan S challenges Elsevier’s existing journal model and the company is responding by expanding its data services.
