Elsevier completes the acquisition of Interfolio

Elsevier, a world leader in research publishing and information analysis, and a member of RELX, has completed the acquisition of Interfolio, a provider of advanced faculty information solutions for higher education, headquartered in Washington DC, USA.

For more than 20 years, Interfolio has supported academics, researchers, higher education institutions and funders. Interfolio’s portfolio includes the Faculty Information System (FIS), Dossier and Researchfish. The Faculty Information System enables scholars to collect and manage critical data for hiring, reviewing, promoting and tenure of scholars, through a streamlined and transparent digital process, using data on faculty activities that benefit the researcher and the institution. Researchfish technology helps funders and research organizations collect, track, evaluate and gain insight into research findings, outcomes and impacts. Dossier helps scholars and researchers efficiently group and apply for faculty positions and graduate programs.

Andrew Rosen, Managing Director of Interfolio, said, “I’m incredibly proud of everyone at Interfolio. We have one goal: to help our clients understand and effectively manage the enormous amount of activity performed by researchers. As part of Elsevier, we will maintain this focus and strengthen our core products for our customers. We will aim to support more institutions internationally, increase data automation to help our customers improve efficiency, and provide sophisticated analytical tools to expand knowledge and facilitate scientific work. This is an exciting next step for our company, and I look forward to working with the Elsevier team.

Interfolio will be part of Elsevier’s Research Intelligence portfolio, which includes Scopus, SciVal, Pure and Digital Commons. The combined portfolio will provide analysis and insights that will help academic researchers, research leaders, institutions and funders achieve their strategic goals.

Theo Pillay, Managing Director of Institutional Research Products at Elsevier, said: “Interfolio has an unrivaled understanding of academic faculty activity and research assessment data management. Its solutions will strengthen our Research Intelligence portfolio and there are strong synergies that will help us deliver increased and accelerated value to Elsevier and Interfolio customers and users. I am very happy to welcome the Interfolio team to Elsevier.

Macquarie Capital acted as exclusive financial advisor to Interfolio.
