2020 will ring in a decade of more openness in scholarly research – more open access, more open peer review, more open source development, more open humanities and science. ScienceOpen is thrilled to support this development with a wide range of technology solutions. After all, it has been part of our mission statement, and our name, from day one.
For small publishing organizations like library publishers, societies, university presses or single journals, metadata generation and distribution can be a time-consuming manual effort. Sometimes important information is left out simply due to technical restrictions. ScienceOpen can take the pain out of these processes, saving you time and resources and providing richer metadata to your partners. Turning these technical tasks over to ScienceOpen as professional service provider can free up your time to focus on more important editorial goals.
For open access journals we now offer full journal hosting within our unique interactive discovery environment of over 60 million article records. With Crossref DOI deposit, ORCID integration, open review infrastructure, long term archiving, and state-of-the-art indexing and SEO, your open access journal can make ScienceOpen its home base and tap into the full infrastructure of scholarly publishing, all for a very reasonable price. We want to see open access journals grow and flourish in the next year and decade!
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.
ScienceOpen is excited to announce that it now includes books and book chapters to give users a richer discovery experience and to support academic publishers with book sales. Embedded within an interactive environment of nearly 60 million article records, this new feature highlights books and chapters within search results and ScienceOpen’s unique Collections infrastructure. Researchers can now add book publications to their profiles and include books and chapters in their ScienceOpen Collections. Publishers will be able to promote and sell their open access and copyrighted works within a broad, interdisciplinary research context.
The ScienceOpen Collections ‘Psychology by AKJournals’ and ‘Life Sciences by AKJournals’ are online! They join ‘Methods’ as no. 2 and no. 3 out of five planned AKJournals’ Collections. This combined release brings together nine scientific journals, which are a valuable source of knowledge on disciplines ranging from human behavioral studies, through medicine, to biology. The new content is interdisciplinary and diverse, and surely will be a treat for many groups of researchers! Read more for an overview of AKJournals’ freshly featured materials.
