Every year, disasters impact human lives and take a significant economic toll. Science plays a key role in reducing disaster risk and mitigating impact. For the report, A Global Outlook on Disaster Science, Elsevier has partnered with leading international institutions and drew upon high-quality global data including Scopus to examine the state of worldwide disaster science research. Attend this webinar with Elsevier presenters, Anders Karlsson and Basak Candemir to hear the report’s key findings and how it can support policy- and decision- makers at governments and universities on the topic of natural and man-made disastersRead more >
Databases of peer-reviewed biomedical literature and regulatory documents are crucial sources for pharmacovigilance activities. When monitored properly, they yield drug safety signals that are essential for risk–benefit assessments and adverse event reports. However, both are vast resources that can be challenging to monitor efficiently and accurately, especially if different interfaces are needed to access each database.
In 2018, Elsevier is enhancing key solutions for pharmaceutical R&D as part of ongoing efforts to improve the comprehensiveness, efficiency, accuracy and compliance of pharmacovigilance-focused research. By ensuring that all relevant information is captured efficiently, the company is helping drug safety and pharmacovigilance teams deliver considerable improvements in health-critical workflows.
This webinar focuses on 2018 enhancements to Embase, PharmaPendium and QUOSA PV, showing how each solution offers dedicated means to boost the efficiency and accuracy of the monitoring of relevant databases, assessment of captured information, and supervision of the workflow. These enhancements include:
- A dedicated Embase query form for efficient creation and validation of the complex search strings needed for high-recall, high-precision literature searching
- An Embase French Local Language Module to extend the reach of Embase into specially selected French-language literature
- More capabilities in PharmaPendium for searching the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS)
- Even more flexible means to run and oversee GxP-compliant workflows through QUOSA PV, with new functionalities for medical review, signal management and quality assurance. The webinar will address these solutions and enhancements in the context of comprehensive support for the goals of pharmacovigilance.
Elsevier, one of the world's major providers of scientific, technical, and medical information, sought to accelerate access to enterprise data by shortening their development cycle, making more cost-effective decisions, and delivering business value faster, while moving away from technology vendor lock-in. Come hear Elsevier's phased approach to moving from monolithic services to microservices with Red Hat OpenShift, and the business benefits they have seen so far.Read more >
Universities are ideal hubs for students to build knowledge synthesis and create skillsets. But, many undergraduate engineering students don’t take full advantage of the powerful information and resources that are available to them through institutional subscriptions.
However, there are pedagogical strategies faculty can adopt to grow learners’ capabilities through knowledge synthesis, including leveraging tools like Knovel, Engineering Village, and Elsevier’s game-based learning experience called Engineering Academic Challenge.
This webinar will address:
• Examples of learning experiences where students have been asked to synthesize & apply information in new contexts and create new knowledge
• The contexts in which students to develop research skills
• Ways to leverage Knovel and Engineering Village to facilitate the learning journey and produce tangible research & education outcomes
This webinar series is presented by Elsevier as part of our ongoing support of advancements in engineering education. We invite all attendees to participate in the Engineering Academic Challenge, an immersive problem-set based competition for engineering students all over the world. https://eac.elsevier.com/

Scopus is considered the Gold Standard for research assessment and evaluation purposes by 4,500+ universities and 150+ leading research organizations worldwide. Join as us we discuss the richness of Scopus data and the value it provides for data-driven insight.Read more >
Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.
Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.
For a vast institute with dispersed resources, Penn State has strategically approached the implementation of Pure and carefully rolled out Pure across campuses. This session will cover their learnings, challenges and insights with this strategy and how they use Pure as part of the Elsevier Solutions Suite to tackle the research landscape at Penn State University.Read more >
For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:
What is your relationship with research?
Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.
Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
