As new content gets aggregated on a daily basis on ScienceOpen, researchers can combine different search filters and discovery tools to make their own search collection, which can be saved and easily adapted in the future.
ScienceOpen’s Save Search functionality will save you precious time and will make it easier to focus on your research project.
Fast, free and easy! ScienceOpen has been publishing open access conference posters for years with over 500 posters currently accesible on the platform.
We recently added a new editor to the poster collection. Nur Atmaca, ScienceOpen’s newest Editorial Assistant, will review your work before publication, and in no time, you will have access to a variety of tools that will boost your digital profile. After the poster is published with a Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution license and a Crossref Digital Object Identifier (DOI), researchers can easily share the published poster on social media and track usage on the article page.
With finals, presentations, and papers due, the end of the semester can be a particularly challenging time for students all over the world. An additional problem that adds stress to the already overwhelming workload is the need to find relevant literature for each assignment.
During the last year, I have been actively using ScienceOpen for my research, and in this blog we want to highlight some of the most useful tools for students on ScienceOpen
Our network of over 81 million publications features plenty of books, research articles, and book chapters in a wide range of disciplines that explore different aspects and breakthrough innovations of academia in the Middle East and Northern Africa, or topics covering issues affecting the region.
Within our discovery environment, ScienceOpen offers services for publishers to highlight their academic content and promote the journal and publisher brands with unique collections, banner marketing, and search shortcuts.
Our survey was broad in scope, with the goal of exploring more diverse perspectives and experiences on the advantages and disadvantages of Open Peer Review. We asked about the number of articles our respondents had reviewed, where they published them, and some more specific questions about various aspects of open peer review.
On this blog, we are happy to share the results.
Islamic Studies is an academic discipline that focuses on the history, culture, society, and religion of Islamic society from its inception in the 7th century to today.
In this blog, we wish to highlight not only collections that cover various aspects of the broad discipline of Islamic Studies but also notable research and scholarship from the various academic communities and institutions in Islamic countries.
There are pros and cons of Open Peer Review, so we would like to hear from you. Do you believe that Open Peer Review will catalyze a culture of open scholarly debate, or do you feel that it will prevent researchers from being completely honest in their critique?

In the giving spirit of the holidays, we wanted to take this time to make you aware of some ways you could support open access publishing around the world! If the last two years have shown us anything, it is that we are all very connected and dependent on one another.
We work with several truly inspiring nonprofits who accept donations to help them in their endeavors to develop their continents’ research infrastructure and foster open access. Each organization has a resource or contact for you to find out specifically how your contribution is being used. Below we have given a description of the organization and links to donate through. Additionally, we have just become the hosting platform for Pluto Journals who have switched to being a fully open access publisher. Their membership programme may interest you as a way to support one of their journals, which cover a wide variety of social justice matters. Moreover, all of these institutions’ research supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through their respective missions.
