ScienceOpen is a freely accessible search and discovery platform that puts research in context. We believe that free access to knowledge drives creativity, innovation, and development, and we support publishers and scholars from all over the world, enhancing their discoverability and increasing their impact in the open.
Our publishing partners represent different regions of the world, and today we want to highlight the research from Africa, which enriches our discovery environment of over 90 million articles, books, and book chapter records.
We are pleased to support AJET as part of one of our infrastructure’s successful implementations, which includes a manuscript submission and peer review management system, production tracking, editorial operation support, open-access hosting, metadata services, and promotional campaigns.
Introducing the Sudanese Researchers Foundation
We are very excited to introduce our new cooperation with the Sudanese Researchers Foundation (SRF). SRF is a Sudanese NGO focusing on advancing scientific research in Sudan and increasing the capacity of Sudanese researchers. ScienceOpen and SRF have collaborated to begin a new journal within the ScienceOpen platform, making it the second journal to be completely powered by ScienceOpen. The support provided by ScienceOpen will include a manuscript submission and peer review management system, production tracking, editorial operation support, open-access hosting, metadata services, and promotional campaigns for SRF’s new journal, the African Journal of Engineering & Technology (AJET).

Connecting the Global Research Community
ScienceOpen was founded to facilitate scientific exchange and accelerate scholarly communication, and a main pillar of how we do this is by fostering open and public communication among academics. We think it is especially important for collaborations to reach across continental and cultural boundaries to increase inclusivity in the scientific community. Thus, we continually reach out to publishers and organizations outside of the Western research community of Europe and North America to increase the diversity of content on ScienceOpen, both in topics and perspectives. In doing so, we strive to broaden the global context of research indexed on the platform and to expand the network of researchers using ScienceOpen to encourage collaboration among research communities. These efforts have led to the start of many new projects across the world, and today, we are proud to introduce our newest partnership with the Pan African Medical Journal (PAMJ).
