Introducing the Sudanese Researchers Foundation

We are very excited to introduce our new cooperation with the Sudanese Researchers Foundation (SRF). SRF is a Sudanese NGO focusing on advancing scientific research in Sudan and increasing the capacity of Sudanese researchers. ScienceOpen and SRF have collaborated to begin a new journal within the ScienceOpen platform, making it the second journal to be completely powered by ScienceOpen. The support provided by ScienceOpen will include a manuscript submission and peer review management system, production tracking, editorial operation support, open-access hosting, metadata services, and promotional campaigns for SRF’s new journal, the African Journal of Engineering & Technology (AJET).

African Minds kicks off open access book hosting service on ScienceOpen

Introducing our partner: African Minds

ScienceOpen has partnered with the not-for-profit, open access publisher, African Minds, to host its scholarly books in a unique Collection on ScienceOpen. While ScienceOpen has been hosting open access journal content for years, it is the first time ScienceOpen has hosted open access book content. With the implementation for African Minds, we kick off a new service for open access publishers. The technical team of ScienceOpen has built a user-friendly interface that produces streamlined, machine readable metadata to quickly integrate rich book records onto ScienceOpen, provide Crossref DOIs, long-term archiving and more. Our partners at African Minds have tested and implemented the new interface to create a collection of books and book chapters that will extend the reach and accessibility of science from Africa.

Welcoming the Pan African Medical Journal Collection

Connecting the Global Research Community

ScienceOpen was founded to facilitate scientific exchange and accelerate scholarly communication, and a main pillar of how we do this is by fostering open and public communication among academics. We think it is especially important for collaborations to reach across continental and cultural boundaries to increase inclusivity in the scientific community. Thus, we continually reach out to publishers and organizations outside of the Western research community of Europe and North America to increase the diversity of content on ScienceOpen, both in topics and perspectives. In doing so, we strive to broaden the global context of research indexed on the platform and to expand the network of researchers using ScienceOpen to encourage collaboration among research communities. These efforts have led to the start of many new projects across the world, and today, we are proud to introduce our newest partnership with the Pan African Medical Journal (PAMJ).

Explore the new, open-access Journal of Urban Archaeology by Brepols Publishers

Introducing the Journal of Urban Archaeology

Urban societies have created a remarkable and immense archaeological record, and the material yielded from urban sites can reveal a lot of different information about cultural constructions, environmental issues, social evolution, and more. Up to now, however, this material has often been discussed within the framework of different regional and topical approaches rather than within its own field. The Journal of Urban Archaeology (JUA), published by Brepols, is the first journal to recognize urban archaeology as a field within its own right and is intended to provide an intellectual forum for researchers working on the archaeology of urban societies. The Journal of Urban Archaeology is now discoverable on ScienceOpen in a unique Featured Collection, expanding ScienceOpen and Brepols Publishers’ partnership.

ScienceOpen and Partners in Digital Health expand their partnership to promote Telehealth and Medicine Today

ScienceOpen and Partners in Digital Health expand their partnership to promote Telehealth and Medicine Today

Introducing the international, open-access journal Telehealth and Medicine Today

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a huge focus on improving telehealth and telemedicine. Electronic systems are used at an increasing rate—patients are asked to fill out forms on their smartphones in their cars rather than on a paper copy in a waiting room, and when possible, clinical sessions are switched to online to prevent any chance of virus transmission. ScienceOpen is thus pleased to announce the addition of a leading forum for the growing health technology sector to the ScienceOpen platform: Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) by Partners in Digital Health (PDH). TMT is the second PDH journal to be integrated into the platform, joining Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY). Both journals are now discoverable in the context of 65+ million scholarly records and are supported by the advanced search engine, collection infrastructure, andnumerous user engagement features of ScienceOpen.

Increasing visibility for Open Access publications  

The open access (OA) movement continues to make great strides in reshaping the established parameters for scientific communication and access to scholarly information. Even traditional publishers have begun to seek out ways of adapting to this rapidly shifting landscape. At the heart of the OA movement is the aim of removing barriers to information, so that research can be freely accessible by everyone. Openly available research helps accelerate the pace at which advances in research may be made, both within and across the boundaries of specific fields, and sparks public dialogue rooted in the latest findings on a given issue. But how visible is open access really? Establishing the infrastructure to make scholarly information freely accessible has been critical to getting open access on its feet, but where does it go from here? Is research that is neither easily discovered nor readily understood by most people actually “open”?

Following up with our Open Science Stars

Following up with our Open Science Stars

The Initial ‘Open Science Stars’ Project

Four years ago, the late Jon Tennant, who was a significant contributor to the Open Science movement and a friend and colleague to the ScienceOpen team, interviewed people on ScienceOpen’s behalf from around the world who were active supporters of making science more open. This year, we got back in touch with several of the interviewees to get their opinion on the current status of Open Science in 2020. We heard from Dr. Joanne Kamens, Executive Director of Addgene, Professor Dr. Samir Hachani at Algiers II University, and Dr. Chris Hartgerink, Executive Director of Liberate Science GmbH. We also received an interesting update on the state of Open Science in Indoensia from Dr. Dasapta Erwin Irawan. Where do you think Open Science is heading in 2020? Share your thoughts with us! Here are our Open Science Stars’ responses:

For many publishers the requirements of modern digital publishing can be dizzying – XML DTDs, PIDs, DOIs, metatags. At ScienceOpen we have been consulting publishers on their metadata for years to help get the most visibility possible for academic publications. We have increasingly built systems with our technical partner, Ovitas, to support publishers with metadata creation and distribution and made each new tool available to the next customer.  As a metadata technical hub, we can automate time-consuming tasks and let publishers concentrate on the content. Here are a few of the services that we can provide to help take the pain out of publishing:
