ScienceOpen’s Monthly Digest – October 2023

ScienceOpen’s Monthly Digest – October 2023

In October ScienceOpen was on the road

From Frankfurt to Stockholm and Bologna, it was a busy month for the ScienceOpen team! Here is a recap of the achievements and news of October.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is the largest book fair in the world and a highlight every October. Our booth was busy with discussions around books, current challenges in digital publishing processes, and innovations in book publishing. It was a great moment for networking and exchanging ideas with publishers from all over the world, and we got the chance to showcase the potential of our network for bridging different publishers and publishing needs together.

Frankfurt is a great place to connect with international academic publishers and show off some of ScienceOpen’s new features. This year, we combined the STM Frankfurt Conference with a stand at the book fair to meet with partners and customers.

Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen

In Stockholm, Sweden Stephanie Dawson spoke at the 2nd RExPO International Conference on Systems Medicine, Artificial Intelligence and Drug Repurposing and presented some of the open science features of the Drug Repurposing Central research and publishing portal for REPO4EU. It was an intense, information-packed two days and ScienceOpen was proud to be the publisher for the RExPO abstracts.

Nina Tscheke is just back from the Workshop on Open Citations #WOOC2023 in Bologna, Italy, presenting our next-generation infrastructure for digital A&I and registration services for books.

What a great conference it has been. It is always good to see what is cooking in the Open Science/OA community—the focus on open metadata and citations provided lots of new ideas for our content integration team. Only together can we consolidate the publishing landscape for better accessibility and discovery and find smarter ways for research assessment.
