A countdown to the holidays with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
And just like that, it is December! Although the holidays will look different this year—with virtual gatherings in place of in-person events, less travel, and adapted traditions—we hope you are still looking forward to the festive period! In anticipation of the season, we will be highlighting different collections on ScienceOpen beginning tomorrow and continuing each weekday through the 24th of December. The theme of this year’s countdown is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 2020 has highlighted for us all the ways, large and small, that our world is interconnected. We feel, therefore, that it is critical to promote research on sustainability, global warming, poverty, and inequality and hope that we can do a small part in helping the research community make progress with these goals.

Season’s greetings from ScienceOpen! We hope you all have an excellent festive period, and wish you all warmth, love, and laughter going into the New Year.
We would like to extend our special thanks to all of our users who have continued to help support ScienceOpen this last year, and continue to use our services to help make science that little bit more open.
An advent collection adventure
In December, we are running a special advent calendar to highlight some of our favourite researcher-led collections over the last couple of years. Each day, we’ll reveal a new one to you here, each one a chance for you to learn about a new topic, or interact with the expertly-curated papers in each.
Collection editors are some of the most impactful users of ScienceOpen, and we want to use this opportunity to send our deepest thanks to them for their continued engagement.
Give yourself a little extra discovery time!
Can you recall the last time that you read an article purely for fun, without the pressure of deadlines, for the sake of discovery or out of curiosity? Each day, a new window of our advent calendar will open up a unique field of research innovations, solutions and perspectives. Each one is designed to help us to develop a better understanding of the world around us.
It’s time to slow down, and give a little extra discovery time for yourself. You give the time, we bring the joy of discovery! So wrap yourself into a cozy blanket and enjoy satisfying your curiosity. Luxury? Of course, it is! But it’s all yours.
