Welcome to ScienceOpen’s monthly digest, in which we present the most recent details on new publishers and journals that have joined our platform, as well as fresh new collections that may assist researchers and editors in their scientific work.
May has been a fantastic month for ScienceOpen, with new journals joining our network and many others expanding their collections.
Let’s have a look at some of the most recent additions to ScienceOpen and remember to follow @Science_Open on Twitter and other social media platforms for the most up-to-date information.
Sunway University Press on ScienceOpen
Sunway University, one of Malaysia’s top private institutions, encourages research on pressing global concerns. Sunway University Press is at the forefront of pioneering research and fascinating new ideas, and you can now access a variety of SUP books through ScienceOpen.
Their authors and readers include students and experts in research fields related to Sunway University’s scholarship, and this collection will provide an avenue for access to the university’s intellectual property by encouraging an environment of sharing, learning, and building, while also assisting academics by providing a constructive writing and publishing space.

Latest breakthroughs in chemistry
AsiaChem, the official magazine of the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS), has joined ScienceOpen’s research and discovery network, bringing important insights from the field of chemistry and featuring a wide range of articles on cutting-edge science, recent discoveries, interviews, and anything else of interest to a broad audience in the chemical sciences.
FACS’ work focuses on Asian discoveries and texts written by scientists who were born in Asian countries or are currently working in Asia. The eight FACS countries are represented in AsiaChem’s various issues and publications, including Australia, China, India, Israel, Jordan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey.
AsiaChem’s first two issues are now available on ScienceOpen:
- Issue 1 – String Theories: Chemical Secrets of Italian Violins and Chinese Guqins
- Issue 2 – Chemistry in Japan
The Journal of Systems Thinking
The Journal of Systems Thinking (JoST) is the first and only open-access post-publication peer-reviewed (PPPR) journal dedicated to fundamental scientific research, innovation, and public understanding in Systems Thinking (cognitive complexity), Systems Mapping (visual complexity), Systems Leadership (organizational complexity), and Systems Science (ontological complexity).
Thanks to ScienceOpen’s built-in infrastructure for open, post-publication peer review, authors interested in publishing on JoST can now submit a manuscript as a “preprint” for open peer review and debate in the open peer review system for JoST. Once accepted, an article will be properly published and sent to a variety of services.
ScienceOpen offers long-term archiving via CLOCKSS, Google Scholar metatags, and indexing services to ensure the broadest possible distribution.

- Diagnostic utility of FGF-23 in mineral bone disorder during chronic kidney disease
Open Access research in Genome Integrity
Genomic Integrity, a fully open-access journal giving you high-quality research titles in the area as well as the most recent advances in the knowledge of the systems that control genome integrity maintenance, is another fantastic addition to ScienceOpen.
ScienceOpen will publish Genome Integrity, and CompuScript will provide professional typesetting services for the Journal, marking another milestone in our successful partnership on digital publishing solutions.
Genome Integrity’s publications cover a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, induction of DNA damage, sensing, signaling, and repair of DNA damage, metaphase chromosome alterations, cell cycle regulation, genome integrity and aging, genome integrity and cancer, and so on.

New open-access collections by Bioscientifica
ScienceOpen and Bioscientifica took a significant step forward in their partnership by creating new research collections in vascular biology, reproduction, fertility, endocrinology, orthopedics, and traumatology.
Bioscientifica works together with biomedical societies to publish and create journals that have a high impact, a large audience, and a solid financial profile. ScienceOpen’s collaboration with Bioscentifica and our diverse range of publishing solutions for their journals directly supports scientific communication on medical research within our user community and beyond.
The new collections:
- Bioscientifica Open Endocrinology
- Bioscientifica’s Reproduction collection
- EFORT Open Reviews
- Vascular Biology
Research on Scientific Applications and Mobile Devices
Thanks to our new partnership with the APD SKEG, all the latest breakthroughs, and research in the field of scientific mobile applications and devices will now be available to ScienceOpen users.
Scientific (Phone) Applications and Mobile Devices is the first peer-reviewed open-access journal to publish high-quality scientific findings on mobile applications and smartphone-dependent devices. SAMD, published by APD SKEG, not only gives academic legitimacy to the larger scientific community and industry, but it also promotes public awareness about the creation of such instruments.
The open-access policy of Scientific (Phone) Applications and Mobile Devices allows articles to be seen by a large, global audience while maintaining rigorous peer review.
