Our #ExploreSDGs campaign aims to promote content that is advancing the research and discussion on topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals, but at the same time, it wants to encourage publishers and researchers to join the challenge of achieving Agenda2030’s goals by curating their own SDG research on ScienceOpen.
Today, we will explore some innovative scholarly content available in our network that can help scientists, researchers, and practitioners working on sustainable development goals to make faster progress toward achieving Goal 3 of Agenda2030.

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!Continue reading “Hogrefe Books join Hogrefe’s ScienceOpen Collections”
