Examples of ScienceOpen Projects

BookMetaHub : Enhancing the metadata landscape for books

ScienceOpen began working intensively with book content in 2019 to add book records to our citation index and broaden our solutions for publishers. 

After identifying a disconnect between the metadata created by the book publishing industry for libraries and sales versus data for online citation and usage tracking, we created a free interface for book publishers, where they can create or enhance their available metadata to make it compliant with digital environment requirements.

The BookMetaHub was developed with funding by the German Ministry of Education and Research as part of itstransformation toOpen Access strategy, supporting a more open and inclusive publishing ecosystem.

BookMetaHub helps publishers simplify content management by providing a freely accessible, cutting-edge hub designed for an easier exchange and update of interoperable book and chapter metadata for academic book titles. 

Newly created (or imported and subsequentially enhanced) metadata files are readily exportable in industry-standard formats such as BITS or Crossref XMLs, allowing for widespread compatibility and distribution across various databases and repositories.

Promoting Open Science solutions in Europe – REPO4EU

REPO4EU stands for Precision drug REPurpOsing For EUrope and the world. The aim of the project is to ultimately host and grow an EU industry-level online platform for drug repurposing with a global reach to move the industry from imprecise drug therapy to precision medicine. REPO4EU promotes expertise throughout the whole value chain in drug repurposing: from freedom-to-operate analysis to intellectual property protection and business development, health technology assessment, ethics, and data governance considerations. 

ScienceOpen has supported REPO4EU in creating an interactive and state-of-the art publishing platform, Drug Repurposing Central (LINK), for the project with custom workflows based on Open Science principles. This new implementation helps advance Open Science and promote a more comprehensive understanding of research quality and impact in drug repurposing scholarly networks, and beyond. 

REPO4EU benefits from ScienceOpen’s innovative infrastructure, and its publishing platform serves as a showcase for all of ScienceOpen’s integrations and partnerships with some of the industry’s most innovative players, such as AltmetricTM and SciScore.  

UCL Open: Environment – open access university journal with open peer review

UCL Open: Environment is another successful project powered by ScienceOpen, highlighting the result of a years of collaboration between UCL Press and ScienceOpen to create a journal based on open review principles. On UCL Open: Environment, scholars can observe the open peer review workflow in action and participate in the workflow by reviewing or inviting fellow scholars to participate, or simply by sharing and promoting their results with the help of our promotional services and tools.

UCL Open: Environment was the first university journal providing an open access and transparent end to end publishing model, enabling research to be accessible to everyone.  

Focused on environment-related research, UCL Open: Environment is embedded into the larger UCL publishing platform and supported by ScienceOpen’s innovative infrastructure with all the tools facilitating journal submission, dissemination, open peer review and contextualisation among millions of records.  

Drawing on the ScienceOpen infrastructure for preprints, open peer review and community curation, UCL Press is creating new ways for scholars to interact with research results and rethinking the current publishing paradigm.
