Collection on COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 research
ScienceOpen has released an automatically updating Collection on the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), currently integrating over 500 articles. In order to speed up the research cycle, articles that have not yet undergone peer review (flagged as “preprint“) are included and clearly flagged. This Collection is a go-to resource for science on this new disease, as content from many publishers and authors can be found on a single landing page and filtered using our search and discovery tools.
Minimizing the obstacles for knowledge dissemination: Publish conference posters and preprints
We want to support those researchers affected by conference cancellations as result of COVID-19: You can share your research results now by uploading your poster to ScienceOpen. This is a free service that is always and everywhere accessible and indefinitely available to use as open access without paywalls or other limitations.
The unique advantage of having a poster on ScienceOpen is that they immediately become available to community curation – fellow researchers can review and comment your work, creating a discussion and a feedback loop that are such a welcome part of live poster sessions.
A personal note by Alexander Grossmann, co-founder of ScienceOpen and scientist himself:
We encourage all researcher to make use of this opportunity and not to give up because the world begins to stand still as a result of a virus! Let’s continue to share our work with our peers and foster academic discourse, even without an opportunity to meet each other in person.
The posters feature allows any scholar to publish a conference poster on the 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. An additional benefit or registering with ScienceOpen is that we offer a range of tools to enhance your digital profile and boost your research impact. You can create an additional point of outreach for your publications and easily combine them with other materials that you may have online by redirecting the traffic via external links. Share your published poster on social media with just a click and then track usage on the article page.
From lockdown, quarantine and home offices in Germany, France, Poland, Hungary and the US, the ScienceOpen team is still working hard to support the rapid dissemination and discovery of research results.
