We have worked with our partners at Compuscript to feature the open accessJournal of Southern Agriculture on ScienceOpen to help increase its global dissemination. By being indexed on the platform, theJournal of Southern Agriculture is now in the context of over 71 million scholarly works and benefits from the ScienceOpen Collections Infrastructure.
ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for ICMB21
ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for conference proceedings in our unique Collection infrastructure. This gives conferences an online presence and increases dissemination and awareness of conference proceedings through integration in ScienceOpen’s discovery environment. Most recently, ScienceOpen has worked with the UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings (UKCMB) to publish the 1st International Conference on Moisture in Buildings (ICMB21) proceedings. ICMB21 will take place online this summer on June 28th and 29th, and accepted conference papers have already been made available in the ICMB21 Featured Collection on ScienceOpen. This gives conference-goers more time to read through the papers and prepare or already begin discussion of the topics to be presented during the conference.
New Open Access Journal Collection: Genes & Diseases
We are proud to introduce the newest Journal Collection on the platform: an elite STEM journal from China, Genes & Diseases. This journal was selected in 2019 as a top journal to join China’s STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan.
China’s Journal Excellence Action Plan
In 2019, the China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan was jointly implemented by the China Association for Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the General Administration of Press and Publication, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. This initiative was started to improve the quality of top scientific journals in China to bring them to world standards. It’s a huge national project of high importance, consisting of seven sub-projects, including leading journals, key journals, echelon journals, high starting point journals, clustering pilots, international digital publishing service platforms, and high-level journal personnel. 285 journals were selected to receive funding from the 2019 China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan. Genes & Diseases was selected as one of these journals in the ‘high starting point journals’ category. All the selected journals are considered highly influential in their respective fields. This national project is of the highest level and has huge support in China. Thus, we are thrilled to have Genes & Diseases join the platform in a featured Collection.

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.
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.
We are delighted that the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research content will now be available through ScienceOpen. This will help to make the IJAFR much more accessible and therefore more useful to the academic community and beyond.
ScienceOpen has worked with its partner, UCL Press, to create themed collections that bring together research by University College London (UCL)-affiliated authors. These collections promote the University’s research output in a unique and interactive format and are accessible on the newly launchedUCL Research Collections webpageand can also be found directly through ScienceOpen’s discovery platform. The collections are powered by ScienceOpen, utilizing the collection infrastructure of the platform. The research collections bring together thousands of records of UCL-authored published articles, pre-prints, book chapters, conference proceedings, working papers and reports from a global database into specific themes that are easily explorable in a user-friendly interface.
We are very excited to introduce our new cooperation with the Sudanese Researchers Foundation (SRF). SRF is a Sudanese NGO focusing on advancing scientific research in Sudan and increasing the capacity of Sudanese researchers. ScienceOpen and SRF have collaborated to begin a new journal within the ScienceOpen platform, making it the second journal to be completely powered by ScienceOpen. The support provided by ScienceOpen will include a manuscript submission and peer review management system, production tracking, editorial operation support, open-access hosting, metadata services, and promotional campaigns for SRF’s new journal, the African Journal of Engineering & Technology(AJET).
