A great deal has happened at ScienceOpen since then, here’s a quick rundown:
- Grew to over 10 million articles and records, fully filterable by citation with almetrics on every item. Short video demo.
- Listed as one of “10 to watch” in the 2015 report entitled “Open Access: Market Size, Share, Forecast, and Trends” by Outsell Inc
- Welcomed our first publisher co-operation with Thieme, a prestigious German medical press (and expanded our partnership!)
- Accepted as members of OASPA and the DOAJ
- Included in RoMEO
What do we hope to achieve at this year’s COASP meeting? Stephanie (our CEO) would like to chat with as many of our fellow publishers as possible about how you, like Thieme, can use our platform to raise the visibility of the OA research that you publish even further, which is of benefit to your authors and their careers.
As some, but not all, of you know, ScienceOpen has developed a Collections Tool which allows Community Editors to curate articles from any OA publisher in any way they choose.
Here’s one on Cancer Immunotherapy by the President and Editor-in-Chief of Annual Reviews, Richard Gallagher, who is well known to many of you from his roles at Nature and Science. Editors can pick which articles to include by citation history; altmetrics info; year; openness (we feature open articles and closed stubs); add their own Editorial (which receives a DOI); add comments about why they choose each article and then invite others (with five or more peer-reviewed publications on their ORCID) to participate in Post-Publication Peer Review.
Here’s another example of our Collections Tool in action from Thieme, who have have added 3 OA journals to the platform:
- Endoscopy International Open
- American Journal of Perinatology Reports
- The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons Reports
We offer a safe and legal networking option for encouraging conversation around content, that complies with publisher policies. ScienceOpen invites those attending COASP to find Stephanie (@) and get involved!
