Karger Publishers, one of world’s leading health sciences publishers, will feature publications from dozens of their international, peer-reviewed journals in 11 topical Collections on ScienceOpen, including ten Collections of handpicked articles on specialized fields of medicine, as well as a special Collection on COVID-19. The new Collections are an invaluable digital resource for medical researchers and practitioners, and thanks to their comprehensive scope and the richness of the content, will boost dissemination of high-quality medical research in the digital space.
Particularly in the medical field it is essential to distinguish carefully selected and vetted research within the digital resources used globally for the health and well-being of all. We are therefore thrilled to be working with Karger Publishers to highlight these high-quality resources within the ScienceOpen discovery environment and encourage community interaction.
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.
