Organizing a conference this year? Publishing posters and proceedings on ScienceOpen is a low-cost alternative that puts your conference output in the context of over 50 million article records, with smart search and filtering tools and interactive features for the research community.
Posters are an effective way to communicate the essence of a research project in a compact space. They provide an opportunity to present preliminary results and get feedback from the scientific community before publishing. ScienceOpen has been publishing posters open access for years with over 170 posters on the platform. Now with an easy upload function, integration with ORCID and Crossref, and a full spectrum of usage metrics from citations to Altmetric Score, ScienceOpen offers a state-of-the-art platform for your conference. Users can bookmark their favourite posters, review, add comments, share to social media, recommend them to their peers, and cite.
Each poster receives a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and is published Open Access under a Creative Commons Licence (CC BY 4.0). Publishing a poster digitally is a great way for researchers and conference organizers to share and discuss preliminary research results with the broader scientific community before publishing. On top of that, you easily track the impact of your poster(s) through citations count and metrics such as downloads and shares on social media.
ScienceOpen Collections are another great way to circulate initial research among scientists from all around the world. Collection editors are free to add posters to their collection, meaning that a poster can be contextualized within its discipline by an expert in that research field. Posters can then later be exchanged for a preprint or a fully published article. For editors, adding posters diversifies available research on the topic of the collection.
To further increase the discoverability of their research within the ScienceOpen environment and the wider scholarly community, authors are welcome to add a lay summary, thumbnail image, keywords, and disciplines to their poster.
Conference organizers interested in promoting a selection of their posters or proceedings—as in the example of the Model Reduction of Parametrized Systems conference or the 25th European Students’ Conference—should contact the ScienceOpen team to learn more about how we could help you with your conference content. A branded Collection landing page attractively promotes your conference, with “related collection” banners on all relevant content in the database. We would be happy to arrange a call to discuss your requirements, create an offer, and give you a short demonstration of our platform.
We look forward to hearing from you!
