European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services

About the European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services

The European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services (EPRS) was established in November 2013, in order to provide Members of the European Parliament, and where appropriate, parliamentary committees, with independent, objective and authoritative analysis of, and research on, policy issues relating to the European Union, and so assist them in their parliamentary work.



As both a publisher and a digital solutions provider, Elsevier embeds research data in the workflow and makes it accessible, discoverable and reusable.

Elsevier also applies metrics that enable both researchers and institutions to gauge progress toward compliance and performance goals.

Through our publishing processes, we work with researchers to provide a strong practical example of how data exposure along with published papers can augment the quality, transparency and impact of their research.
