At ScienceOpen, we are committed to amplifying research that matters and fostering long-lasting partnerships with publishers who are changing the world. We are excited to announce two exciting additions to our network: PLOS Global Public Health and PLOS Climate. Both journals were launched in 2021 and promote cutting-edge, responsible, and transparent research on public health and climate change.
ScienceOpen is excited to promote these important journals within our discovery environment with attractive journal landing pages. ScienceOpen will support PLOS in growing the author base for the two journals, as well as help increase their discoverability to a broad audience of researchers and stakeholders alike.
English stands as one of the dominant languages in the realm of scientific publishing worldwide, making research in other languages potentially more challenging to discover. At ScienceOpen, we recognize the importance of cultural and linguistic diversity in academic research.
Our platform offers multilingual support for hosting articles as well as metadata elements including translated titles, keywords, abstracts, and more!
At ScienceOpen, we recognize that the challenge is not just conducting and publishing groundbreaking research but also ensuring that it is accessible to other researchers and understandable to a broader audience. With our author summary feature, we make it possible for researchers to increase the discoverability of their work, share their findings with a lay audience, facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration, boost search engine visibility of their research, and increase the citability of their findings.
January 24th marks the sixth International Day of Education, a day proclaimed by the United Nations to highlight and celebrate the role of education in peace and minimizing inequalities. The day recognizes access to education as a human right.
We believe that the principles of open and accessible science closely align with the goals of the International Day of Education. We would like to reaffirm the importance of open science, collaboration and the democratization of knowledge in breaking down barriers to information and fostering a culture of learning and discovery. Here, we would like to use this day to feature some of the journals and publishers from our collection that feature education-related research, advocating for inclusive and quality education worldwide.
The Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) is a scholarly journal that serves as a critical platform for examining political, economic, and social issues across the African continent. Since 1974, ROAPE has provided critical examinations of trends, issues, and social processes in Africa through a broadly materialist lens. ROAPE’s publications have played a crucial role in creating a significant platform that supports ongoing efforts for racial, gender, and economic equality in Africa. As the journal celebrates its 50th anniversary, we are delighted to announce that ROAPE is switching from a subscription-based model formerly hosted on the Taylor & Francis platform to complete Open Access now fully hosted and published on the ScienceOpen platform.
Our accomplishments over the past year and goals for 2024 are only possible with the support of all our members, authors, editors, customers, and staff. Thank you!
REPO4EU is a Horizon Europe project aimed at establishing a European Platform for Drug Repurposing with global reach.
