Elsevier is a division of RE, along with Harcourt, Lexis-Nexis and Reed. Whilst there's an argument to cover all four divisions under the singular entry of Reed Elsevier, the four companies operate quite independently of each other, and it is perhaps fairer to say that 'at the moment' they are all divisions of RE.

I'd rather have different articles at the moment. --moyogo 14:35, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

So can we remove the merge tag?... extraordinary 08:10, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Article should be separate. The several sections maintain quite different profiles (in terms of what they publish), with Elsevier particularly being quite different from teh Reed companies (Elsevier is all science, Reed is mostly trade). The addition of Lexis-Nexis, which serves a third (and fourth) market, as well as other smaller divisions serving other markets, suggests that the best response is to have a Reed-Elsevier article that covers the combined company, with links to/from the component companies. A combined entry without the separate entries would become clumsily large and unwieldy, or be so noninformative as to be useless to most readers

I agree they should remain separate. Each business unit (Reed = business, LexisNexis = legal, Elsevier = science, and Harcourt = education) has its own distict focus and target audience. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.185.18.207 (talkcontribs)

Ha... I guess you would know. ;-) --198.185.18.207 21:09, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Have removed the merge tag based on the above comments from the last few months. Anyone who's interested has had loads of time for input. Does anyone care?... :) extraordinary 15:27, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

I work at Reed Elsevier and we've just been making some website changes. We noticed that a couple of things should probably be updated on here too to correct some old information. I think the main one is that the Risk and Business divisions now report combined figures [1], so the Operations section should now show 'Scientific, Technical & Medical: Elsevier', 'Risk Solutions & Business Information: LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Reed Business Information', 'Legal: LexisNexis Legal & Professional', 'Exhibitions: Reed Exhibitions'. Is that OK? Ryoba (talk) 11:01, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
