Welcoming Trivent Medieval Books – medievalism, magic, witchcraft and more!

An introduction to the Trivent Medieval Collection

Adding to the diverse humanities and social science content on ScienceOpen, our most recent project with Trivent Publishing is now available! Together, we have launched a featured collection that showcases the books from Trivent Medieval. Trivent Medieval is a growing imprint, currently holding ten book series on varied historical subjects: art history, magic and witchcraft, Mediterranean studies, equestrian history, Byzantine history, the history of the Carolingian Empire, as well as gender, and medievalism. We are very excited to support this excellent collection of medieval history research by Trivent Publishers. The integration of the Trivent Medieval Collection into the ScienceOpen discovery platform further expands our reach beyond the natural sciences and will increase the dissemination of Trivent books.

Easiest way to make a book discoverable? Equip its chapters with unique DOIs!

In order to support this conclusion, we did some number crunching on ScienceOpen. Since launching our expanded indexing services in November 2019, ScienceOpen has tracked citations to over 820,000 books and book chapters, giving us plenty of data to work with. Out of the total amount of book content, book chapters represent around 80%. Such a strong presence on the ScienceOpen platform is not a coincidence – book chapters equipped with DOIs as persistent identifiers are more easily trackable and thus become a key tool in research discovery of book publications. As researchers commonly use publication lists of books and articles as a discovery tool, chapter-level DOIs make more granular information easier to find and cite.
