Explore new tools for next-generation, open peer review. ScienceOpen and UCL Press offer an interactive, hands-on, online workshop to demo the open peer review tools behind UCL’s interdisciplinary publishing platform UCL Open: Environment for researchers and editors.
The science of infections and the science of addictions – Hungary’s leading scientific publisher, Akadémiai Kiadó, is adding two Collections by AKJournals, the journal publishing branch, to the ScienceOpen platform. New release addresses the topic of human health from two diverse perspectives: of microbiology & immunology and of behavioural addictions. The new featured Collections will join the ranks of AKJournals‘ three immense topical selections of research, all in one place on the newly launched Publisher Landing page of Akadémiai Kiadó. For your convenience, here’s the overview:
With the content being completely open access, AKJournals’ latest launch provides additional digital resources in the fields of medicine and of psychology for everyone to use! The featured research not only is very timely, but also its publishing standards are at the highest level, adhering both to publishing best practice and to ethical conduct guidelines for peer-review. This release is not to be missed on, so without any further ado, let’s dive in and explore AKJournals‘ new Collections!
Help us inform others and get credit for it! At ScienceOpen, we are catalysing the information campaign around the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. Our Collections infrastructure is available to use free-of-charge, for both publishers and researchers alike. Everyone can join us to build a rich network of knowledge around the coronavirus, and each individual contribution is very important and valued on our platform!
In this post, we want to showcase a number of coronavirus-related Collections curated by researchers, and to present to you how to use the ScienceOpen platform to share own research and create digital resources for others to learn from.
ScienceOpen has released a Collection of COVID-19 research that highlights rigorous, peer-reviewed articles by reputable journals and publishers within the rapidly growing coronavirus knowledge base. Almost two dozen publishers have already participated in ScienceOpen’s initiative, bringing together 1000s of articles and enabling better discovery for the research community.
ScienceOpen offers powerful filters for enhanced discovery and interactive tools to recommend, review and share research. Publishers can create unique collection landing pages for their coronavirus-related content within the context of thousands of preprints and articles aggregated from around the world.
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.
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.
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-19: You 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.
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.

The new ScienceOpen Collections by the IET features recent scientific advances and increase their accessibility for the global audience with the overarching aim of informing next generations of engineers in the dynamically changing fields of artificial intelligence and of transport.
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.
