Author summaries: Increase discoverability with ScienceOpen

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.

The Challenge: Academic publishing is transitioning to a fully digital industry which means publishers need access to state-of-the-art technology to keep up with ever-changing best practices.

ScienceOpen offers unique technologies for academic publishers to create, host, and promote their content, whether it be journals, books, conferences, or preprints. Our services also include integrating your content within a freely accessible discovery environment with next-generation metrics and curation tools for reputation management and dissemination. Working closely with all types of scholarly publishers from across the world, ScienceOpen works on an individual base to develop solutions for publisher’s content.

Un-siloing Book and Journal Content

We are excited to announce that Hogrefe, the leading scientific publisher for psychology, psychiatry, and mental health in Europe, has worked with us to add book records to their collections on ScienceOpen.
