Evolution of book services on ScienceOpen 

From citation tracking to open access book hosting to metadata enhancement, we have been busy at ScienceOpen creating and expanding options for scholarly book publishers. Since the Fall of 2019, we have been committed to making academic books discoverable within ScienceOpen’s citation network. In that relatively short period of time, we have gone from first expanding our indexing services to books and book chapters to receiving funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research to build a free user interface to manage open access book metadata. In this post, we summarize our book options for publishers and highlight the diverse featured Book Collections on the platform thus far. Keep reading if you are a book publisher or just want to discover some interesting innovations for open access books!

ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for ICMB21

ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for conference proceedings in our unique Collection infrastructure.

New Elite Chinese STEM Journal, Genes & Diseases, on ScienceOpen

New Open Access Journal Collection: Genes & Diseases

We are proud to introduce the newest Journal Collection on the platform: an elite STEM journal from China, Genes & Diseases. This journal was selected in 2019 as a top journal to join China’s STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan.

China’s Journal Excellence Action Plan

In 2019, the China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan was jointly implemented by the China Association for Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the General Administration of Press and Publication, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. This initiative was started to improve the quality of top scientific journals in China to bring them to world standards. It’s a huge national project of high importance, consisting of seven sub-projects, including leading journals, key journals, echelon journals, high starting point journals, clustering pilots, international digital publishing service platforms, and high-level journal personnel. 285 journals were selected to receive funding from the 2019 China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan. Genes & Diseases was selected as one of these journals in the ‘high starting point journals’ category. All the selected journals are considered highly influential in their respective fields. This national project is of the highest level and has huge support in China. Thus, we are thrilled to have Genes & Diseases join the platform in a featured Collection.
