Scholarly Societies and the Sustainable Development Goals on ScienceOpen

Ähnliches Foto

The unanimous adoption by UN Member States of the Sustainable Development Goals raised hopes that they would serve as a backbone for a global partnership for peace and prosperity. Yet, it is not only a political agenda: delivering the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals has become the focal point for many scientific communities across the globe.

Science, however, is a tremendously diverse practice with efforts always underway on multiple fronts simultaneously. As a result, it often proves difficult to find a unified platform where one could inform themselves in one place how different groups of scientists bring us closer toward accomplishing the sustainability goals.

The Microbiology Society, a leading organisation for research in microbes with over 10,000 publications indexed on ScienceOpen, decided to address this challenge and also highlight the vital role of learned societies in working together towards a sustainable future. The Society’s one-of-a-kind initiative culminated in the creation of the ScienceOpen Collection ‘A Sustainable Future’. This selection of research goes beyond the scope of microbiology and integrates contributions from nine scholarly organisations across topics such as ecology, medicine, social policy and welfare, environmental studies, and biochemistry. Offering this kind of unified learning experience is unprecedented, but this is not the only thing that makes this Collection unique!

Strategic collaboration agreement signed between ScienceOpen and Pensoft

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.

Quality in Peer Review

The long-awaited Peer Review Week has just started, and we could not be more excited! This year’s edition is all about quality in peer review. So, what does quality peer review look like and why is it important?  

Peer review is key to facilitating the growth of scientific knowledge. It allows the community to pool its resources, provide guidance and maintain a common standard of research. It is in everybody’s interest to ensure its highest quality, and the more is invested into this process, the higher the returns. However, the lack of transparency, accountability, and recognition for reviewers creates an unsustainable model of peer review and hampers realizing its full potential. 

ScienceOpen is set to change this!
