ScienceOpen worked closely with Peter Lang Group to present a glimpse into the publisher’s editorial program and rich content in a featured collection, with titles available in both English and Spanish. These new book titles will be adding valuable insights not only to our book network but also to our multilingual content, thus making research more accessible for the diverse audiences that use ScienceOpen in their line of academic engagement.
We are very excited to be joining London Book Fair next week, and in today’s blog post, we would like to highlight our diverse and impressive book content, which has been featured in tens of collections and includes publishers from all over the world.
BookMetaHub will not only help to build a more open and inclusive publishing ecosystem, but it will also help publishers simplify content management by providing a freely accessible, cutting-edge hub designed for an easier exchange and update of interoperable book and chapter metadata for academic book titles.
We are pleased to announce that our book content has grown with the addition of a new collection from Medical Physics Publishing, a nonprofit that publishes books written by and for physicists, medical residents, radiologists, and technologists.
We were curious about our most read and cited book titles on ScienceOpen so put together a few highlights.
Welcoming Michigan Publishing to the Platform
ScienceOpen is very pleased to announce a new partnership with Michigan Publishing, starting with the University of Michigan Press’ open access books. The University of Michigan Press (UMP) is a leading publisher and distributor of books and digital projects in the humanities and social sciences that are aligned with the strengths of its parent institution. ScienceOpen has worked to showcase the Press’ titles as part of a featured Collection within the discovery environment and provide expert technical services such as metadata enhancement.Continue reading “Michigan Publishing and ScienceOpen begin a new partnership around the University of Michigan Press’ Open Access Books”
Un-siloing Book and Journal Content
We are excited to announce that Hogrefe, the leading scientific publisher for psychology, psychiatry, and mental health in Europe, has worked with us to add book records to their collections on ScienceOpen. By combining books and journal article records in collections, ScienceOpen works as a platform to “un-silo” publishers’ content. Hogrefe has previously created ten collections on ScienceOpen to feature their journals’ content. These collections include eight thematic collections on topics such as medicine, nursing, and psychology, a Covid-19 collection, and a universal Collection comprising over 17,000 publications. Bringing together book and journal content around similar topics embedded in ScienceOpen’s interactive search platform gives a new way for readers to interact with and discover research that’s relevant for them!Continue reading “Hogrefe Books join Hogrefe’s ScienceOpen Collections”
ScienceOpen features humanities and social sciences research
Although our name may suggest a focus on the physical and natural sciences, ScienceOpen works with all types of scholarly publishers. Many of our partners are publishing in the fields of humanities and social sciences (HSS), and so ScienceOpen is a great resource for research in these areas in addition to STEM subjects. In this post, we are pleased to highlight some very interesting and recently added HSS content and Collections on the platform.Continue reading “Humanities Content on ScienceOpen”
About the open access Sustainable History Monograph Pilot

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!Continue reading “ScienceOpen’s infrastructure for 4.3 million academic book and chapter records on the platform”
