Celebrating International Women’s Day 

International Women’s Day was established to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is a day to recognize the progress made towards gender equality, while also acknowledging the work that still needs to be done. At ScienceOpen, we are committed to celebrating International Women’s Day by honouring the spirit of empowerment, equality, and inclusivity and promoting scientific research related to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality. 
This International Women’s Day, we would like to shine a spotlight on the wealth of research on ScienceOpen that is dedicated to addressing issues faced by women globally and committed to advancing gender equality worldwide.

Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

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.
