Rare Disease Day 2024

Today (February 29th) marks Rare Disease Day, a globally coordinated occasion raising awareness for people living with rare diseases all around the world, as well as their families and carers.

Today, we want to highlight the importance of scholarly research on the diagnosis, care and treatment of those battling rare diseases, while also reiterating our commitment to the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals and progress on SDG3 on Good Health and Well-Being.

Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

Review by academic peers is at the core of the scientific publishing process. By making reviews and comments accessible, open peer review practices build upon the traditional peer review process. Transparency helps to enhance the reliability and credibility of both peer review and research results. The visible and shared feedback can foster collaboration and increase public trust in scientific findings.  

Since its inception, ScienceOpen has been actively promoting and facilitating open peer review, both within its network and across the whole digital publishing landscape. Over the years, we have continued to explore open peer review tools and workflows to support preprint management, post-publication review, and the creation of open access journals based on open peer review.
