Elsevier and the Dryad Digital Repository have implemented two-way linking between their respective content. This means scientific and medical research datasets stored by Dryad for research articles published in 28 Elsevier journals can now be immediately accessed at Dryad from their online article on ScienceDirect, and vice versa. KnowledgeSpeak brought this information our direction in their article, “Elsevier articles on ScienceDirect and scientific and medical research data at Dryad now reciprocally linked.”

This type of linking between articles and data is a key bragging point of Article of the Future, Elsevier’s ongoing program to improve the format of the scientific article. By collaborating with more than thirty data repositories, Elsevier makes it easy for researchers to collaborate and connect with additional data sources.
