Fast, free and easy! ScienceOpen has been publishing posters open access for years with over 160 posters on the platform. We have now updated our publication module to offer researchers a free and simple interface to upload, publish and promote their posters – all with a CC BY license and access to a full suite of tools to promote and track usage and impact.
Early career researchers often have their first experience of presenting their work in the form of a conference poster. Posters are an effective way to communicate the essence of a research project in a compact space and provide an opportunity to present preliminary results and get feedback from the scientific community before publishing.
To help researchers share their results beyond the conference, ScienceOpen is launching in beta a new feature allowing any scholar to publish a poster on our platform in just a few minutes. Simply register on ScienceOpen with your ORCID and then click on the ‘Submit manuscript’ button in the ScienceOpen Posters Collection header. Upload your poster pdf file and add metadata such as title, abstract and keywords plus a catchy image and you are ready to go! An editor will review your submission before publication. ScienceOpen offers a range of tools to increase your digital profile. You can share your published poster on social media with just a click and then track usage on the article page.
Conference organizers interested in promoting a selection of their posters or proceedings, as for example the Model Reduction of Parametrized Systems conference that took place in Nantes in April 2018, should contact the ScienceOpen team for a quote. A branded collection landing page can increase your reach.
ScienceOpen is happy to return to poster publishing with this simplified workflow as a new feature to support the research community. Try it out and publish your poster for free today! This feature is brand new and still being developed, so your feedback is particularly welcome under firstname.lastname@example.org.
