Introduction

  • Dissemination, by scientific publishers, of high quality scientific output across the globe is a crucial part of research

  • In recent years the move from paper to electronic content delivery has drastically changed researchers time-spending

  • Researchers are able to spend significantly less time on searching for relevant content and at the same time have access to a wider range of content

  • At the same time the increase of usage clearly positively affects the quantity and quality of scientific output

  • Comparing macro-economic and demographic data with the uptake of usage and scientific output enables decision-makers to analyze the productivity and efficiency of their investments

  • Elsevier has invested heavily in the increase of productivity and efficiency of researchers all over the world through the ScienceDirect platform, Scopus and many other highly specialized products

Developing countries have a larger benefit from electronic access tohigh quality content than developed countries

  • Historically UK has large access-levels to content, making the transition from paper to electronic small in terms of additional availability

  • In Poland the transition from paper to electronic content opened up access to a much larger volume of content

  • In China the amount of content available before the launch of SD was insignificant compared to the amount available today

Low development countries

4.5x faster growth

Access growth accelerator

2.3x faster growth

High development countries
