King Salman Center for Disability Research Teams Up with SciScore and ScienceOpen to Elevate Journal Rigor

The Journal of Disability Research (JDR), a new open-access journal published by the King Salman Center for Disability Research (KSCDR) on the ScienceOpen platform, proudly announces a collaboration with SciScore to further raise the scientific rigor of the journal. ScienceOpen will integrate SciScore’s advanced scientific rigor and reproducibility checks into the manuscript submission workflow, marking a pivotal step toward enhancing the quality and integrity of published research in disability studies.

KSCDR is where Science Benefits People

The open-access Journal of Disability Research was founded by the King Salman Centre for Disability Research to foster innovation and promote best practices in disability research and care. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, and case studies that contribute to understanding and improving the lives of individuals with disabilities. 

The journal is hosted within the innovative ScienceOpen discovery environment of over 90+ million article records. ScienceOpen provides a full publishing service from manuscript submission to peer review management and XML production services. To take advantage of new AI tools to analyze and further increase the reproducibility of disability research, ScienceOpen has worked to add a scientific rigor check powered by SciScore to the journal’s workflow.

SciScore, a product of SciCrunch, is a pioneering tool that automatically evaluates manuscripts for key indicators of scientific rigor, such as sample size calculation, blinding, randomization procedures, comprehensive data reporting, cell line authentication or validation, and verifies the identity of the antibodies used, among other areas. By integrating SciScore into the ScienceOpen platform, JDR ensures that all submitted research undergoes a rigorous assessment process, thereby promoting transparency and reliability in scientific publications. 

This collaboration with SciScore and ScienceOpen represents a major advancement in our commitment to publishing high-quality, reliable research. By leveraging SciScore’s rigorous evaluation tools, we can ensure that our publications meet the highest standards of scientific excellence, ultimately benefiting the global research community and advancing the field of disability studies.

Badr AlHajhouj, CEO of King Salman Center for Disability Research

Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen, says “Research that can be easily discovered and effectively reproduced is key to quickly moving towards real-world solutions that improve people’s lives. Encouraging and even requiring the use of persistent identifiers like the Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) as part of the scientific rigor check will increase the impact of the important work published in the Journal of Disability Research. We are excited to be able to offer this new implementation to our customers.” 

SciScore is thrilled to partner with the Journal of Disability Research and ScienceOpen to elevate the standard of scientific rigor in disability studies. By integrating our advanced evaluation tools into the manuscript submission workflow, we aim to fortify the integrity and reliability of published research, ultimately advancing our collective understanding and support for individuals with disabilities,” says Anita Bandrowski, CEO of SciCrunch.
