ScienceOpen has been promoting Open Science from the beginning. For years we helped advancing this goal by supporting researchers and publishers to make science more visible, accessible, and reproducible. With this we aim to meet the global call(s) for openness and offer solutions that can benefit all.
The technical backbone
The ScienceOpen platform provides a unique advanced indexing, hosting, and publishing environment that is freely accessible and embedded within an interactive discovery and communication infrastructure of more than 60 million publication records—including journal articles, conference papers, open peer reviews, preprints—and offers free poster and preprint publication (incl. versioning) for researchers.
Last year, we launched within our framework the UCL Open publishing platform for the UCL Open: Environment multi-disciplinary journal. In close collaboration with our partner UCL Press, an alternative space for new modes of scientific content community curation was created.
The platform received a new infrastructural branch to include books and book chapters, an essential advancement that offers an additional channel for our researchers, customers, and users to promote and discover relevant content and to expand their portfolio or profile.
