At ScienceOpen, we are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the ever-changing scholarly communication ecosystem.
To keep you all up-to-date about the latest research advancements in the field, we’ve built an easily accessible and searchable scholarly communications knowledge base, which we call a super collection! This knowledge base covers different aspects of the field, such as:
A simple search for “scholarly communication” on our platform also reveals 150 Open Access papers on the topic!
Our recent partnership with IOS Press allows us to greatly expand this knowledge base. Their flagship Open Access journal, Information Services and Use, is now indexed on ScienceOpen. The journal covers a wide range of topics around scholarly publishing and open research, and facilitates discussion on the key aspects of the field. Articles cover a whole new set of issues about how to maximize the accessibility and potential of research data.
Below you can find a selection of some of the most exciting topics and articles.

Today’s interview comes from another recent ScienceOpen author, Daniel Graziotin. In his ScienceOpen article, “Green open access in computer science – an exploratory study on author-based self-archiving awareness, practice, and inhibitors,” he analyses the results of an exploratory questionnaire given to Computer Scientists. It addressed issues around various forms of academic publishing, self-archiving of research, and copyright. In the following interview with ScienceOpen, Graziotin gives a unique perspective, as a young scientist and as a software and web developer coming to scientific publishing from the world of open software development. His ideas are bound to be interesting to emerging scientists in particular, as he represents a new globally engaged generation of scientific researchers making full use of open knowledge to further innovation.
