To support open access scientific publishing and increase the discoverability of genetics and genomics research, ScienceOpen has partnered with the Genetics Society of America (GSA) to integrate the open access journal G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics into the ScienceOpen discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.

How are researchers working with genetics content on ScienceOpen? Our users have curated collections on topics such as higher order chromatin architecture, CRISPR/Cas9 editing in human blood, genome engineering using CRISPR, and the measurement of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in major depression. We always welcome more researcher-led collections in genetics on ScienceOpen so contact us today for editor status!

GSA’s open access journal G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics provides a forum for the publication of high-quality genetics and genomics research such as genome maps, single gene studies, genome‐wide association and QTL studies, as well as genome reports,  mutant screens, and advances in methods and technology. Furthermore, G3 has published thematic collections on Genomic PredictionMultiparental PopulationsGenetics of Immunity, and Genetics of Sex. As a featured collection on ScienceOpen, this journal is placed in a digital research environment of interactive tools that increases the discoverability of its findings.

For the official press release, visit our Press Room, STM Publishing News, and Knowledgespeak.

At the border between chemistry and physics, between basic and industrial research, materials science draws inspiration from interdisciplinarity. It embraces a myriad of scientific disciplines—from established fields such as metallurgy and medicine, to ongoing research in nanotechnology and computer science—to develop countless products and technologies for a more comfortable and sustainable future. How ever we categorize it, discovering and engineering new materials to meet our modern challenges is crucial to our competitive technological global society.

How are ScienceOpen users working with materials science content on the platform? Researchers have started collections on silicon thin film solar cells, electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI), photoluminescent nanomaterials, EU NanoSafety Cluster publications (journal articles), and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). We welcome more researcher-led collections in materials science so contact us today for editor status.

To bring together and increase the visibility of the latest materials research, ScienceOpen has joined efforts with Carl Hanser Verlag in a partnership that integrates all of Hanser’s journal content and highlights the International Journal of Materials Research (IJMR) in the ScienceOpen discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.

ScienceOpen is pleased to announce a partnership with the University of Huddersfield Press, a primarily open access publisher of high quality research, to promote the British Journal of Pharmacy – a new featured collection of scientific articles in pharmaceutical sciences.

British Journal of Pharmacy is an online, peer-reviewed, open access journal with no article processing charges (APCs). This publication is a product of University of Huddersfield Press’ mission to improve access to scholarly work for the benefit of all by publishing innovative research as open access. The journal publishes research on the latest developments in pharmacy in the form of scholarly papers and critical reviews. Submissions can be accepted from a wide range of pharmaceutical sciences including, among others: pharmacy, molecular pharmacy, drug delivery and targeting, pharmacoeconomics, pharmacokinetics and therapeutics, pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry, pharmacovigilance, and innovations in teaching pharmacy.

University Press & Marketing Manager, Megan Taylor, said “The University of Huddersfield Press aims to improve access to scholarly research for all – we are looking forward to working with ScienceOpen to make our innovative research available to even wider audiences.” Continue reading “The British Journal of Pharmacy joins ScienceOpen”
