A single point of truth for all research at an institution
Elements is a software system used by research institutions to collect, understand and showcase their scholarly activities.
Hundreds of thousands of researchers, administrators, librarians and research staff around the world use Elements to help collect information about their work and make the data available for repurpose and reuse.
Founded by researchers, for researchers, our products are designed to reduce manual effort, improve data quality and expedite the transfer of data between systems.
Librarians use our products, often in the context of Open Access policies, to guarantee the completeness and quality of materials held in institutional repositories.
Elements has been specifically developed to gather the data institutions need for internal or external assessment and repurpose it for other systems and services.
How does it help?
The needs of research institutions continue to evolve. We work with them to address their primary concerns for the modern research era.
These are some of the ways Elements benefits researchers, administrators and institutions:

The Wealth of Institutions
Research-based institutions are in the knowledge business. They generate, process and store knowledge. They innovate, apply and disseminate. They produce the people who move across the economy enabling other organisations to exploit knowledge for economic and social benefit. Knowledge is the currency of research: it flows and accumulates, and institutions and individuals gain by displaying their Wealth of Knowledge.
In this paper we review the evolving public environment for knowledge management and we consider how institutions have responded to the pressures and demands that this has brought.
