Launching a new open access journal or an open access press? ScienceOpen now provides full end-to-end open access publishing solutions – embedded within our smart interactive discovery environment. A modular approach allows open access publishers to pick and choose among a range of services and design the platform that fits their goals and budget.
You want to create a unique publishing identity? Book your own sub-domain powered by ScienceOpen to manage and host existing open access publications or start new journals. ScienceOpen can provide technical infrastructure for manuscript submission, peer review management, open access hosting, article versioning, distribution, analytics and APC management for journals and (coming soon) books. The ScienceOpen platform has its own powerful citation index and is uniquely integrated with ORCID, Crossref and Altmetric to immediately plug your publications into the infrastructure of global scholarly communication.
been committed to making science open from its onset. Some of our latest
projects in realizing this commitment have been launching the ‘UCL Open:
Environment‘ megajournal, contextualizing the new open access
journal ‘BMJ Open Science’ into the ScienceOpen
research discovery environment of 53 million article records, and offering some
ideas on how
you can contribute to open science in small but significant
In light of the 6thOpen Science Conference organized by the Leibniz Research Alliance Open Science in Berlin this week, we decided to give you an overview of some of the most relevant and diverse research content on open science curated in the form of researcher-led collections on ScienceOpen. Our research recommendations below discuss some of the most pertinent issues in open science, such as the FAIR data principles, reproducible research, metadata, and open access scholarship. Enjoy!
Owned by the Biochemical Society, Portland Press promotes the future of molecular biosciences and the wider life sciences. Neuronal Signaling is an online-only, fully open access journal grounded in the fields of cellular signaling pathways, biochemistry, and molecular biology. It spans a variety of neuroscientific disciplines, from molecular mechanisms of neuropathologies and neurodegeneration, to signaling in consciousness and memory. All articles in the journal are published with a CC BY Creative Commons License. Open for submissions, you can submit your article to Neuronal Signaling today.
Mental health matters! As part of our extended collaboration with the Hogrefe Publishing Group, ScienceOpen now indexes 30 English and German language academic journals covering many areas of psychology and mental health. The content of these highly-regarded peer-reviewed journals is integrated in the form of the featured collection ‘Hogrefe Psychology’ into the ScienceOpen research discovery environment.
ScienceOpen and Hogrefe Publishing Group are pleased to announce an extended collaboration that integrates six new featured collections in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, and health care into the ScienceOpen research discovery environment. These collections join the already featured open access article collection ‘Hogrefe OpenMind’ in psychology/psychiatry, medicine, and nursing on ScienceOpen.
Prof. Beutel is editor of the collection ‘Coleoptera’,
a comprehensive overview of over 9,000 research articles covering this
immensely diverse group. This ScienceOpen collection goes beyond the
traditional fields of taxonomy and morphology, and integrates an increasing
number of open access records. Curated by an evolutionary biologist who
considers himself primarily a systematist, the collection covers multiple lines
of research, such as phylogeny, classification, genetics, and physiology. ‘Coleoptera’
is an indispensable tool in biodiversity research and provides an essential
reference system for studies in other fields. Evolutionary biology of
Coleoptera relates to topics such as physiological and genetic
backgrounds of feeding habits or reproductive biology, making it an exciting
group to study. This is especially true in our “age of
phylogenomics”, when rapidly growing
molecular data opens new fascinating perspectives in the research on beetles
and other organisms.
How will we report the results of scholarly research in the future? Probably not on paper. Digital, accessible, machine-readable, reproducible describe the foundations of open science. And, increasingly, the question for funders, publishers, and institutes is becoming: can we influence how research is done by changing the requirements and attributes of the research “paper”?
With the growing opportunities of the digital world, the demand for open access to research articles developed into an open science movement that strives for science to be done in an “open, and reproducible fashion where all components of research are open”. The process of making all aspects of science open, transparent, and interoperable is a huge endeavour and means different things for different communities. ScienceOpen’s commitment to open science has been clear from its foundation: we make science open. Our latest project in the realization of this goal has been integrating ‘BMJ Open Science’ as a new open access featured collection on our platform.
