International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning is now hosted on ScienceOpen
The International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning (IJDEGL) is an internationally refereed journal by UCL Press that is dedicated to publishing educational research and current debates on development education, global learning, global education, and global citizenship. This journal is the second of five new UCL Press education and social science journals that are joining ScienceOpen. Here, we highlight the addition of IJDEGL to ScienceOpen’s discovery platform alongside today’s publication of its newest issue!
Full open access hosting of the Film Education Journal on ScienceOpen
In continuation of our close partnership with UCL Press, we are excited to announce the incorporation of five major education and social science journals onto the ScienceOpen platform from UCL Press! We will provide full open access hosting and metadata distribution services for the new journals, placing them within the context of our interactive discovery environment of over 63 million article and book records. Due to the substantial content for each journal, we will be staggering their launches over the forthcoming months and we are happy to start by showcasing the Film Education Journal that has a new issue out today.
Open science is not only about free PDFs! It is also fundamentally concerned with the ways of collecting, storing and transforming data, as well as making sure that research does not live in a vacuum but has a home among other relevant publications. Rich databases, comprehensive discovery environments and integrated web services are going to play the central role in such reshaping of scholarly communication.
Therefore, in order to facilitate this technological shift, ScienceOpen and Pensoft Publishers have entered into a strategic collaboration partnership that will focus on the unified indexation, the integration of Pensoft’s ARPHA Platform content into ScienceOpen and the utilization of novel streams of scientific dissemination for the published materials.
This partnership bring together two leaders of innovative content dissemination. From promotional collections to Open Access hosting and full publishing packages, ScienceOpen provides next-generation services to academic publishers embedded in an interactive discovery platform. Pensoft Publishers is an independent academic publishing company, well known worldwide for bringing novelty, its cutting-edge publishing tools and commitment to open access practices.
ScienceOpen’s partnership with Brepols Publishers – an international academic publisher of research in humanities founded in 1796 – is an important step in ensuring the broadest audience for a greater discoverability of research in humanities.

Chinese researchers face tremendous hurdles in communicating their research results to the rest of the world – from language barriers to internet restrictions and the traditional western bias of the scientific literature.
Confronted with the danger of being left out of the global scholarly communications, Chinese editors often publish in partnerships with publishers outside of China. This often leaves them having to give up control over the content to their global partners. However, to increase the discoverability of Chinese research in wider scientific circles, journals based in China now have new options to reach out to international audiences.
Over their 15-year history in China, CompuScript/International Science Editing—a leading European provider of publishing services to the scientific community headquartered in Ireland—have built a strong local network to help overcome these challenges, providing editorial and technical support to Chinese researchers, editors, and institutions. To support Chinese researchers and publishers and contribute to the mission of global open science, CompuScript/International Science Editing in China and ScienceOpen have partnered up to develop new products tailored specifically for the Chinese market and to utilize the full set of tools ScienceOpen offers for greater discoverability of Chinese research.
