Welcoming Social Behavior and Personality: an international journal

Introducing the newest Psychology Journal on the platform

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Social Behavior and Personality: an international journal (SBP). Through this collaboration, we have indexed SBP content in a unique collection on ScienceOpen where it will be featured and placed within the context of over 67 million other scholarly records. The addition of SBP content to the platform brings over 1,000 high-quality psychology publications, with new issues published each month. This partnership is therefore a great asset to humanities and social science content on ScienceOpen.

UnisaRxiv – A cutting-edge Preprint Server for the University of South Africa Press

UnisaRxiv – A cutting-edge Preprint Server for the University of South Africa Press

Announcing a New Preprint Server with Unisa Press

In the last several years, preprint servers have become increasingly attractive to publishers as strides have been made, such as the assigning of digital object identifiers, that make preprints a better, more trackable form of scientific communication. Moreover, with the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe, the scientific community has seen preprints play a major role in enabling the swift relaying of research results. Thus, there is a lot of excitement over the future of preprints and how they could transform the scientific publishing landscape. We are therefore excited to announce a new cooperation with the University of South Africa (Unisa) Press, with whom we have created a new preprint server: UnisaRxiv. UnisaRxiv will be a forum to facilitate open peer-review of preprint manuscripts and allow for rapid dissemination of the latest findings in diverse topics.

The Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research launches new interactive publishing environment

The IJAFR is now hosted on ScienceOpen

ScienceOpen and Compuscript have teamed up to create a new, interactive experience for readers and authors of the open access journal, the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research (IJAFR) published by Teagasc, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority of Ireland.  This new partnership with Compuscript and ScienceOpen will expand the reach of the academic journal.

Countdown to the Holidays

A countdown to the holidays with the UN Sustainable Development Goals

And just like that, it is December! Although the holidays will look different this year—with virtual gatherings in place of in-person events, less travel, and adapted traditions—we hope you are still looking forward to the festive period! In anticipation of the season, we will be highlighting different collections on ScienceOpen beginning tomorrow and continuing each weekday through the 24th of December. The theme of this year’s countdown is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 2020 has highlighted for us all the ways, large and small, that our world is interconnected. We feel, therefore, that it is critical to promote research on sustainability, global warming, poverty, and inequality and hope that we can do a small part in helping the research community make progress with these goals.

African Minds kicks off open access book hosting service on ScienceOpen

Introducing our partner: African Minds

ScienceOpen has partnered with the not-for-profit, open access publisher, African Minds, to host its scholarly books in a unique Collection on ScienceOpen. While ScienceOpen has been hosting open access journal content for years, it is the first time ScienceOpen has hosted open access book content. With the implementation for African Minds, we kick off a new service for open access publishers. The technical team of ScienceOpen has built a user-friendly interface that produces streamlined, machine readable metadata to quickly integrate rich book records onto ScienceOpen, provide Crossref DOIs, long-term archiving and more. Our partners at African Minds have tested and implemented the new interface to create a collection of books and book chapters that will extend the reach and accessibility of science from Africa.

Welcoming the Pan African Medical Journal Collection

Connecting the Global Research Community

ScienceOpen was founded to facilitate scientific exchange and accelerate scholarly communication, and a main pillar of how we do this is by fostering open and public communication among academics. We think it is especially important for collaborations to reach across continental and cultural boundaries to increase inclusivity in the scientific community. Thus, we continually reach out to publishers and organizations outside of the Western research community of Europe and North America to increase the diversity of content on ScienceOpen, both in topics and perspectives. In doing so, we strive to broaden the global context of research indexed on the platform and to expand the network of researchers using ScienceOpen to encourage collaboration among research communities. These efforts have led to the start of many new projects across the world, and today, we are proud to introduce our newest partnership with the Pan African Medical Journal (PAMJ).
