How to Follow a Collection and Get the Most out of Your Profile

ScienceOpen Profiles connect you to a Network for Researchers

ScienceOpen was developed in part as a free networking platform for scientists, consisting of all the features researchers need to communicate openly about their research. For example, ScienceOpen’s user interface enables researchers to build up their researcher profile on our platform by connecting with ORCID. Additionally, we publish both scientific posters and preprints for free under an open access license. Scientists can also create their own ScienceOpen Collection to differentiate their portfolio. And qualified users can perform open peer review to evaluate any research articles or books which are on the platform. These capabilities are embedded in a growing, interactive discovery environment of 72 million academic records.

How to Follow ScienceOpen Collections

Today we will talk about one of the simpler, yet nifty, options that all registered users should be utilizing on the platform. This will be how to follow collections on ScienceOpen.

There are over 630 Collections, by both publishers, university presses, researchers, academic societies, etc, that cover a huge range of subject areas from medicine to history. Following collections notifies you when new publications have been added or if there are new peer reviews of papers in the collection. It is super easy to set up, but since there are so many aspects of ScienceOpen, it is probably nice for our users to have a clear explanation. Let’s go!
