  11. 11. This is Elsevier Professionals in science, technology, engineering and health have more information at their disposal today than any time in history; yet understanding, discovery and knowledge are often beyond reach. At Elsevier, we create the tools that make sense of information, to help make better decisions, deliver better healthcare, save lives and make breakthrough discoveries that advance science and society. That means sorting through the overflow of information and choices to reveal knowledge that helps to make critical decisions. We do this by applying smart technology to complex problems, drawing from our unique foundation of authoritative information and structured data. We apply advanced technology and analytics to filter, extract and learn from vast data sets, social networks and collaboration platforms. We provide insight into global research productivity, helping researchers find funding and collaborate with colleagues. We provide the right clinical answers to physicians and nurses, shorten the path to actionable data for R&D professionals, and build adaptive learning technologies to help students learn more effectively. Quite simply, Elsevier is Empowering Knowledge. Source: Read “This is Elsevier” brochure on www.elsevier.com Watch the video” This is Elsevier” 11

  106. 106. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 106 106| Elsevier is Empowering Knowledge
  107. 107. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 107 107| Thank you! Non Solus – Not Alone [..] the intertwined tree and vine represent a fruitful relationship […] the logo represents […] the symbiotic relationship between publisher and scholar. The addition of the Non Solus inscription reinforces the message that publishers, like the elm tree, are needed to provide sturdy support for scholars, just as surely as scholars, the vine, are needed to produce fruit. Publishers and scholars cannot do it alone. They need each other. This remains as apt a representation of the relationship between Elsevier and its authors today – neither dependent, nor independent, but interdependent.
