Publishers, editors, and authors are increasingly experimenting with new communication channels that meet the high standards of “Open Science”. The exciting new journal 4open by EDP Sciences was founded on the four pillars of open science: open access, open data, open code, and open peer review. 4open includes all types of articles and is dedicated to publishing high-quality content in all disciplines of science and research, including materials and engineering. As an interdisciplinary journal that accepts a wide range of research adhering to open science principles, it is an important new addition to the contextual discovery environment on ScienceOpen.
The 4open journal will be featured on ScienceOpen with an attractive Collection landing page, “submit manuscript” button, interactive features, journal and article level metrics, as well as community curation and post-publication article review infrastructure. The journal is off to a great start and has already published 34 articles across a wide range of topics in this completely open model, from cancer research and public health to materials science, mathematics and scholarly publishing. You can now search and sort the full set of articles on ScienceOpen.Continue reading “More experiments with Open Science – 4open joins ScienceOpen”
Society journal in a box
According to a recently published LSE Impact Blog article, society publishing might just be the key to realizing an open access future. Committed to open science practices, ScienceOpen has been supporting scholarly society journals since its foundation in 2013 and continues to do so by integrating society research on the platform in the form of featured Collections.
ScienceOpen and Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers are pleased to announce a partnership that integrates six orthopedics journals published by Jaypee in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.
