Today, we are happy to announce our launch of MyScienceOpen, the professional networking platform designed for a modern research environment.
Since 2013, ScienceOpen has been leading innovation in advanced search and discovery, open peer review, and content management. Now, by leveraging the power of ORCID, we bring you our latest service for helping researchers to make an impact in the open.
MyScienceOpen is an integrated profile where academics can visualize their research impact through enhanced author-level metrics. Key new features include:
- Interactive visualizations of an author’s readers, citations, and Altmetric scores for all their publications through time;
- Addition of non-specialist article summaries, disciplines, keywords, and images to their article records;
- Extraction of articles as RIS, BibTex and Endnote citation metadata for your reference managers;
- Enhanced statistics for collection Editors to track usage.
Making an impact in a research discovery ecosystem
We designed these new features for you to make an increased impact, and keep track as your research progresses. All of this is provided to you within the context of a discovery environment of more than 31 million article records. It just makes sense to have these profile and article enhancement features integrated into an ecosystem where people are actually discovering and re-using research. And for free, of course.
Authors are undoubtedly the best positioned to promote their own research. They know it inside out, they know people who might be most interested in it, and they know the places to maximise the potential audience. But still, with an increasing number of publications every year, it is important that researchers know how to promote their research to maximum effect, whether it is Open Access or not.
Here are our top ten suggestions to help increase your reach and impact! Most of these fall under two categories: Networking and maintaining your digital identity, and sharing your research to enhance its impact. Both are important in a modern scholarly environment, and can help to give you that competitive edge while making sure your’re maximising the potential of your research.
