Introduction In its roles as both a publisher and an information analytics company, Elsevier is committed to contributing to ecosystems that support rigorous and reproducible research data creation throughout the research workflow, making data accessible, discoverable and reusable. Moving beyond content delivery, the overall goal of our Research Data 1 Management efforts is to develop knowledge management tools and solutions to support researchers, librarians, universities and government agencies in managing, sharing and measuring a rich variety of research outputs. Throughout our publishing and analytics tools and workflows, we aim to support researchers with tools and practices to improve exposure and access to their full research cycle, to augment the quality, transparency and impact of research and scholarship.
