ScienceOpen and the biomedical publisher Bioscientifica are pleased to announce a partnership that integrates open-access articles from seven endocrinology and reproduction journals published by Bioscientifica in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.
Owned by the Society for Endocrinology, Bioscientifica exists to support biomedicine, strengthening biomedical communities to advance science and health. All of the journals included in the ‘Bioscientifica Open Endocrinology & Reproduction’ collection on ScienceOpen are society-owned and high-impact, sitting in the top two quartiles of the Science Citation Expanded Index. This new collection features Open Access articles from journals Endocrine-Related Cancer, European Journal of Endocrinology, Journal of Endocrinology, Journal of Molecular Endocrinology, Reproduction, and the fully open-access journal Endocrine Connections. Case reports from the open-access database Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Case Reports are also included.
ScienceOpen, Bioscientifica and the journal’s owning societies, Society for Endocrinology, European Society of Endocrinology and Society for Reproduction and Fertility are committed to increasing the discoverability of biomedical research. Embedded in the ScienceOpen discovery platform of over 55 million article records, the ‘Bioscientifica Open Endocrinology & Reproduction’ featured collection is put in a global research environment with dynamic sorting and filtering tools. Interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, and comments create a space for researcher engagement.
Partnering with ScienceOpen offers Bioscientifica’s authors another avenue for their articles to be found and read. It also offers authors the ability to add further information to supplement their article, including lay summaries, additional images, colleague’s reviews, as well as quick social media sharing functionality. We hope that this collection allows our readers to find highly relevant endocrinology and reproduction articles, all free to read in one place.Victoria Merriman, Marketing Manager at Bioscientifica
