Preprint peer review on ScienceOpen

Preprint peer review on ScienceOpen

A group of industry thought leaders led by ASAPbio recently published a Consensus View on open preprint peer review practices, Recommendations for accelerating open preprint peer review to improve the culture of science. The authors, including ScienceOpen CEO Stephanie Dawson, explore how the growing prevalence of preprints offers an opportunity to reimagine peer review, fostering a culture of more comprehensive and collaborative evaluation processes. Open preprint peer review can enhance accessibility, benefit early career researchers, and streamline evaluation, reducing delays. The authors also address some of the challenges associated with evaluating preprints, and present recommendations for transparent and equitable preprint peer review.

Review by academic peers is at the core of the scientific publishing process. By making reviews and comments accessible, open peer review practices build upon the traditional peer review process. Transparency helps to enhance the reliability and credibility of both peer review and research results. The visible and shared feedback can foster collaboration and increase public trust in scientific findings.  

Since its inception, ScienceOpen has been actively promoting and facilitating open peer review, both within its network and across the whole digital publishing landscape. Over the years, we have continued to explore open peer review tools and workflows to support preprint management, post-publication review, and the creation of open access journals based on open peer review.

Multilingual publishing at ScienceOpen 

Multilingual publishing at ScienceOpen 

English stands as one of the dominant languages in the realm of scientific publishing worldwide, making research in other languages potentially more challenging to discover. At ScienceOpen, we recognize the importance of cultural and linguistic diversity in academic research.
Our platform offers multilingual support for hosting articles as well as metadata elements including translated titles, keywords, abstracts, and more!

Author summaries: Increase discoverability with ScienceOpen

At ScienceOpen, we recognize that the challenge is not just conducting and publishing groundbreaking research but also ensuring that it is accessible to other researchers and understandable to a broader audience. With our author summary feature, we make it possible for researchers to increase the discoverability of their work, share their findings with a lay audience, facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration, boost search engine visibility of their research, and increase the citability of their findings.

Accessible and reusable data is an important part of open science practice. However, to be able to share and build on data, we first need to generate it. Ensuring that the methods used to generate research data are transparent, clearly documented, reproducible, and reusable is an equally crucial element of the scientific process. Standardized and reproducible research methods not only facilitate the generation of reliable data but also contribute to the overall transparency and credibility of scientific research. Join ScienceOpen in celebrating Love Methods Week and promoting open, reusable, and easily verifiable methods.
