Extending our Partnership with UBP

We are excited to highlight an extension of our partnership with the University of Buckingham Press (UBP). UBP works closely with the University of Buckingham, a private university located in the southeast of England well known for its innovation and excellence in teaching. ScienceOpen and UBP started working together last year, featuring five of UBP’s journals in ScienceOpen Collections. Today, we are pleased to announce that two more journals are joining ScienceOpen, one is the brand-new open access Journal of Medical Education Research and the second is the International Journal of Maritime Engineering. We are proud to have these journals indexed on the platform where they join an advanced discovery environment of over 73 million scholarly records.

Humanities Content on ScienceOpen

Humanities Content on ScienceOpen

ScienceOpen features humanities and social sciences research

Although our name may suggest a focus on the physical and natural sciences, ScienceOpen works with all types of scholarly publishers. Many of our partners are publishing in the fields of humanities and social sciences (HSS), and so ScienceOpen is a great resource for research in these areas in addition to STEM subjects. In this post, we are pleased to highlight some very interesting and recently added HSS content and Collections on the platform.

Plants, Animals, Fungi, Oh My! Biodiversity and Ecology Research on ScienceOpen

Plants, Animals, Fungi, Oh My! Biodiversity and Ecology Research on ScienceOpen

Biodiversity and Ecology Research

The biodiversity, or number of different species of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and insects, of our planet is so important. Each ecosystem is a complex network of organisms that interact with their physical environment. Human activity has been highly disruptive to the biodiversity of the planet, with scientists showing evidence that we are in the midst of a sixth mass extinction event due to “accelerated modern human–induced species losses” (Ceballos, 2015). However, this reality does not have to stay so grim. Through research, intervention, and conservation, there are huge efforts underway to prevent species loss and combat global warming. Plus, it seems as if the younger generations, led by activists like Greta Thunberg, are sparking change in government policy and the culture. Additionally, only last year the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) reported some hopeful news that populations of tigers in India and Nepal, African elephants in Namibia, black rhinos, giant pandas, and mountain gorillas are in recovery!

In this post, we’re highlighting research papers from Collections on ScienceOpen that cover biodiversity and ecology. These Collections range from researcher-led collections on very specialized topics to broad publisher collections that contain content from multiple journals. It is our vision that through our Collections infrastructure, important research will be more discoverable and therefore accelerate scientific communication so that fields, such as ecology, can progress faster.

How to Follow a Collection and Get the Most out of Your Profile

How to Follow a Collection and Get the Most out of Your Profile

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!
