Karger Publishers and ScienceOpen cooperate to highlight medical research

Karger Publishers, one of world’s leading health sciences publishers, will feature publications from dozens of their international, peer-reviewed journals in 11 topical Collections on ScienceOpen, including ten Collections of handpicked articles on specialized fields of medicine, as well as a special Collection on COVID-19. The new Collections are an invaluable digital resource for medical researchers and practitioners, and thanks to their comprehensive scope and the richness of the content, will boost dissemination of high-quality medical research in the digital space.

Particularly in the medical field it is essential to distinguish carefully selected and vetted research within the digital resources used globally for the health and well-being of all. We are therefore thrilled to be working with Karger Publishers to highlight these high-quality resources within the ScienceOpen discovery environment and encourage community interaction.

New sustainable building solutions in ‘Journal of Green Building’ on ScienceOpen

Photo source: Logan et al. (2010, p. 9)

How to design eco-friendly buildings? How can artificial intelligence help in green design? How can we green the universities, and make sure that students learn about the principles of sustainability in the best possible way? Finally, how can the design and construction of sustainable buildings fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions? These are examples of questions that the Journal of Green Building – published by College Publishing – addresses in the new journal Collection in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment.

COVID-19 resources on ScienceOpen: Find and share research outputs

Collection on COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 research

ScienceOpen has released an automatically updating Collection on the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), currently integrating over 500 articles. In order to speed up the research cycle, articles that have not yet undergone peer review (flagged as “preprint“) are included and clearly flagged. This Collection is a go-to resource for science on this new disease, as content from many publishers and authors can be found on a single landing page and filtered using our search and discovery tools.

Minimizing the obstacles for knowledge dissemination: Publish conference posters and preprints

We want to support those researchers affected by conference cancellations as result of COVID-19You can share your research results now by uploading your poster to ScienceOpen. This is a free service that is always and everywhere accessible and indefinitely available to use as open access without paywalls or other limitations. 

The unique advantage of having a poster on ScienceOpen is that they immediately become available to community curation – fellow researchers can review and comment your work, creating a discussion and a feedback loop that are such a welcome part of live poster sessions.

ScienceOpen features new Access Microbiology journal by the Microbiology Society

The Microbiology Society has launched a second journal portal on ScienceOpen. The recent release highlights the Society’s new Gold Open Access journal, Access Microbiology, which redefines the idea of ‘high impact’ research by emphasizing great value of methodologically sound and rigorous research for the broader scientific community.  

From early career researchers for early careeer researchers

Access Microbiology is an exciting journal for the Microbiology Society, built for and led by early career researchers and with the goal of ensuring that valuable research outputs are published, whether they are conference posters, negative results, or replication studies. We’ve been working with ScienceOpen for some time, initially for Microbial Genomics, and we know that making the work published in Access Microbiology more visible by showcasing it through ScienceOpen is a clear benefit to our authors.

New Collection on Marine Science on ScienceOpen

Not so long ago have we celebrated the diversity of Chinese research that ScienceOpen opens up for the world to see. As a result, the pleasure to announce yet another Collection from a Chinese publisher is even greater. This time we are putting in the highlight an international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to new discoveries and theories associated with marine organisms, bioresources, and biotechnology: Marine Life Science and Technology. The journal is intended for marine scientists, biological oceanographers, conservation biologists, marine technologists, policy makers and legislators. It publishes original research papers across a broad range of marine life sciences and technologies with an emphasis on synergistic interactions of multiple disciplines.

Open Publishing Models for University Presses – ScienceOpen Workshops in Leipzig and London

Join UCL Press and ScienceOpen for workshops to explore opportunities around open publishing models for your university press.

Over the last year UCL Press and ScienceOpen collaborated on the development of an open publishing platform, UCL Open, and the launch of its first multi-disciplinary journal, UCL Open: Environment.

Open peer review, editorial moderation, community engagement, transparent processes, and rich metadata feeds are all essential features of the UCL Open platform. The ScienceOpen discovery technology and a unique research-driven curation architecture powers the ability to embed broad scope publishing into the whole of research outputs while nourishing niche topical communities.


Open Publishing Models for University Presses

In these free workshops we will share our joint vision for the future of scholarly communication and our experience in realizing and communicating this vision. Throughout the workshop we will introduce UCL Press’ goals for a university-led open publishing system, ScienceOpen’s vision for open platform publishing models, as well as give a live demonstration of the publishing technology, the editorial workflow and the technical solutions we developed together on the way.


If you are a university or society press, or simply interested in the future of university publishing, then register for free and learn more about a model of platform publishing that:
  • enables rapid, transparent and open communication of research results,
  • supports student journals, and
  • provides easy and inexpensive publications for university-run conferences

ScienceOpen Highlights Chinese Research for Inclusive Open Science

Große Mauer, Berg, Sonnenuntergang, Landschaft

Open science is not only about paywalls – it is also about guaranteeing that everybody across the globe can freely and fairly participate in disseminating knowledge. Chinese science is on the rise – an estimated one-third of the worldwide scientific output in 2016 was published in China (Xie & Freeman, 2019). However, Chinese publications face considerable challenges, both structural and cultural, when it comes to communicating science to non-Chinese communities. The mission of ScienceOpen is to remove these obstacles and open Chinese research to a wider audience. To make this happen, ScienceOpen partners with several institutions from China to host and represent their content within its open research network and to help make it easily discoverable in the digital space. In the ScienceOpen database you can find thousands of Chinese research articles. Would you like to get to know the most relevant papers but do not know where to start? Then our featured and non-featured Collections are the right go-to resource! Those article selections integrate handpicked papers highlighting state-of-the-art science. They are a perfect point of departure for anyone wishing to explore new strands of research. As there’s over a dozen (!) Collections from Chinese researchers, we thought we would give you a walk-through and introduce the Collections with which you can begin your adventure!

Book chapter DOIs emerge as a new key tool in research discovery

Image result for museum book
Easiest way to make a book discoverable? Equip its chapters with unique DOIs!

In order to support this conclusion, we did some number crunching on ScienceOpen. Since launching our expanded indexing services in November 2019, ScienceOpen has tracked citations to over 820,000 books and book chapters, giving us plenty of data to work with. Out of the total amount of book content, book chapters represent around 80%. Such a strong presence on the ScienceOpen platform is not a coincidence – book chapters equipped with DOIs as persistent identifiers are more easily trackable and thus become a key tool in research discovery of book publications. As researchers commonly use publication lists of books and articles as a discovery tool, chapter-level DOIs make more granular information easier to find and cite.
