September was a month dedicated to Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen. We just celebrated Peer Review Week and the whole month of September by promoting our solutions, innovation and infrastructure for open peer review and open science.
Drug Repurposing Central is now live and accepting submissions of preprints and articles on drug repurposing, as well as abstracts for the upcoming RExPO Conference.
In just a few simple steps, you can highlight your research in the publishing central and take part in the discussions revolutionizing the way we approach drugs.
In a thought-provoking blog post, Adam Mastroianni (Columbia Business School) recently stated: “There are two kinds of problems in the world: strong-link problems and weak-link problems.” For weak-link problems, ” the overall quality depends on how good the worst stuff is”. (1) To fix them, we need to eliminate the weakest links or make them stronger. That’s why we have strict quality standards for food. Nobody wants to die because they picked the wrong tuna sandwich off the shelf!
Science, on the other hand, is a strong-link problem, Mastroianni argues: “In the long run, the best stuff is all that matters. The bad stuff doesn’t matter at all.”
In this guest blog, Sebastian Alers debates and analyzes some recent attitudes on science and peer review, in an attempt to call and draw attention to the importance of community-driven evaluation of research quality and impact.
Our technical infrastructure can be easily adapted to different projects and solutions, supporting the dissemination and promotion of project results, and helping with recognition and networking, within the digital publishing environment.

With August left behind, we are preparing for busy months ahead, with plenty of conferences and meetings, book fairs, and, of course, new products in development.
Join our monthly recap and celebrate with us some of August’s best additions and the latest updates from our network.
ScienceOpen and Scite.ai announce a new cooperation to provide greater context around citation information for the academic community. The citation index at the core of ScienceOpen’s discovery environment has been augmented with Scite badges indicating whether those citations are supporting, contrasting, or just mentions.
ScienceOpen will now support the Wits Journal of Clinical Medicine with its cutting-edge open access hosting infrastructure, fully equipped with dissemination tools and integrations that facilitate an easy and creative publishing and discovery experience online.
