ScienceOpen is pleased to announce a new collaboration with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to showcase the new interdisciplinary journal, AWWA Water Science (AWS), which publishes original, peer-reviewed research on the science, engineering, and social aspects of water. Thanks to ScienceOpen’s unique infrastructure, authors who publish their research in AWS will have enhanced discoverability as well as access to a suite of features, such as community curation, article reviews, comments, and recommendations, all of which benefit the whole scientific community by facilitating public engagement with scholarly research.
Open science is not only about free PDFs! It is also fundamentally concerned with the ways of collecting, storing and transforming data, as well as making sure that research does not live in a vacuum but has a home among other relevant publications. Rich databases, comprehensive discovery environments and integrated web services are going to play the central role in such reshaping of scholarly communication.
Therefore, in order to facilitate this technological shift, ScienceOpen and Pensoft Publishers have entered into a strategic collaboration partnership that will focus on the unified indexation, the integration of Pensoft’s ARPHA Platform content into ScienceOpen and the utilization of novel streams of scientific dissemination for the published materials.
This partnership bring together two leaders of innovative content dissemination. From promotional collections to Open Access hosting and full publishing packages, ScienceOpen provides next-generation services to academic publishers embedded in an interactive discovery platform. Pensoft Publishers is an independent academic publishing company, well known worldwide for bringing novelty, its cutting-edge publishing tools and commitment to open access practices.
The research discovery platform ScienceOpen is partnering with Brepols Publishers to integrate two new featured collections in interdisciplinary fields spanning the humanities/science divide into a global and interactive research environment.
ScienceOpen’s partnership with Brepols Publishers – an international academic publisher of research in humanities founded in 1796 – is an important step in ensuring the broadest audience for a greater discoverability of research in humanities.
ScienceOpen’s interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, comments and recommendations benefit the whole scientific community by facilitating public engagement with this scholarly research.
Many eyes are turning to renewable energy as a potential solution for a green future.
