Publié le 8 mars 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and ICPSR, a leader in providing curated research data to the behavioral and social science community, today 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.


Article-data linking is one of the pillars of Elsevier’s initiatives for sharing research data. Elsevier collaborates with more than fifty data repositories, and is continually looking to collaborate with other relevant organizations.
