A New Open Access Partner
ScienceOpen is proud to announce our partnership with Spotlight on Research (SOR) to bring awareness to SOR’s open access, peer-reviewed health journals. Spotlight on Research’s mission is to be a leader in online, scholarly publishing in terms of access, quality, transparency, and fairness and to be the preferred peer-reviewed source for all who conduct and read health-related research. Its journals aim to improve the lives and health of populations by making high-quality, evidence-based health information freely available online. Content from the SOR journals is now featured on ScienceOpen in a featured Spotlight on Research Collection to promote the dissemination of its content to a wider base of readers and to place it in the context of 65 million other records of scholarly works.
We are excited to welcome the addition of the Spotlight on Research Journals to ScienceOpen. SOR reminds us how vital Open Access research is when it comes to health-related topics, and we look forward to directing more researchers to submit to SOR by promoting the journals on our platform.ScienceOpen CEO Stephanie Dawson
