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?
Take our survey and share your experiences and thoughts!
With this new integration, ScienceOpen helps publishers and funders alike to track the visibility of their outputs on the internet.

Un-siloing Book and Journal Content
We are excited to announce that Hogrefe, the leading scientific publisher for psychology, psychiatry, and mental health in Europe, has worked with us to add book records to their collections on ScienceOpen. By combining books and journal article records in collections, ScienceOpen works as a platform to “un-silo” publishers’ content. Hogrefe has previously created ten collections on ScienceOpen to feature their journals’ content. These collections include eight thematic collections on topics such as medicine, nursing, and psychology, a Covid-19 collection, and a universal Collection comprising over 17,000 publications. Bringing together book and journal content around similar topics embedded in ScienceOpen’s interactive search platform gives a new way for readers to interact with and discover research that’s relevant for them!

ScienceOpen Profiles connect you to a Network for Researchers
ScienceOpen was developed in part as a free networking platform for scientists, consisting of all the features researchers need to communicate openly about their research. For example, ScienceOpen’s user interface enables researchers to build up their researcher profile on our platform by connecting with ORCID. Additionally, we publish both scientific posters and preprints for free under an open access license. Scientists can also create their own ScienceOpen Collection to differentiate their portfolio. And qualified users can perform open peer review to evaluate any research articles or books which are on the platform. These capabilities are embedded in a growing, interactive discovery environment of 72 million academic records.
How to Follow ScienceOpen Collections
Today we will talk about one of the simpler, yet nifty, options that all registered users should be utilizing on the platform. This will be how to follow collections on ScienceOpen. ScienceOpen Collections are thematic groups of research papers drawn from various journals or publishers. There are over 630 Collections, by both publishers, university presses, researchers, academic societies, etc, that cover a huge range of subject areas from medicine to history. Following collections notifies you when new publications have been added or if there are new peer reviews of papers in the collection. It is super easy to set up, but since there are so many aspects of ScienceOpen, it is probably nice for our users to have a clear explanation. Let’s go!
