New Metadata Services
This collaboration with UUM Press has produced a new service package that can help publishers get the most from their digital content and free up editorial resources. ScienceOpen has provided expert technical support with the generation of rich, machine-readable metadata, assigning and depositing Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) with Crossref, and delivery to indexing services. If this has piqued your interest, go to our previous blogpost where we describe in detail all of the technical services we provide.
Increasing Discoverability, Impact, and Engagement
In addition to improving the visibility of UUM Press within an open discovery environment of nearly 65 million records, ScienceOpen provides an engaging online forum for its content. Our customized search engine facilitates the discoverability of journals, articles, and books, while interactive features such as article reviews and community curation encourage public engagement with the authors’ research. To reward researcher participation by fully recognizing the contribution of reviewers and ensuring optimal discoverability for authors, ScienceOpen integrates seamlessly with Crossref and ORCID.
The University [UUM] has always given its support in introducing the UUM Press brand as an international publisher to enable it to aggressively promote its publications globally. I also hope that by accessing ScienceOpen’s communication platform, UUM Press can build its own international market and cultivate a stronger reputation to better enhance UUM’s academic image in the eyes of the world.UUM Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof. Dr. Ayoib Che Ahmad
