Modern research is about weaving together different strands of information, thought, and data to discover something we did not know before. At ScienceOpen, humanities research lives in harmony with Maths, Engineering and the Natural and Physical Sciences. We specialize in integrating research from across the humanities and social sciences from disciplines such as Linguistics with Brill, Literature, History and Cultural Studies with the Open Library of Humanities, and Psychology with Hogrefe. Our ever-expanding humanities section includes rare delights such as Medieval Heritage, Comics, or Greek Linguistics.
Integration leads to discovery
By working with a range of publishers and transcending disciplines, our research network constantly finds new connections for users to explore. This enriched context is based on article-level citation and reference analysis, with each nod, or link, in this network designed to expand the horizons of researchers and help them to discover previously unknown relevant research. Recently, we took the diverse field of Archaeology and integrated it into this mix to see what happens.
Our recent additions to the discipline include the Open Access Internet Archeology, and the researcher-led collection Digital Archaeology (edited by Dominik Hagmann). These latest additions fit beautifully in to our already existing Archaeology corpus of 9980 research articles, with the 5 colourful featured Archaeology journals by Equinox already thriving among them.
Let’s take a look at what all this new research has to offer! They reveal to us the material remains of ancient cultures, historical accounts of past lives, and tell us stories about what is it like doing Archaeology in a modern, digital research environment.
