ScienceOpen and Compuscript have teamed up to create a new, interactive experience for readers and authors of the open access journal, the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research (IJAFR) published by Teagasc, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority of Ireland. This new partnership with Compuscript and ScienceOpen will expand the reach of the academic journal.
We are delighted that the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research content will now be available through ScienceOpen. This will help to make the IJAFR much more accessible and therefore more useful to the academic community and beyond.
ScienceOpen has worked with its partner, UCL Press, to create themed collections that bring together research by University College London (UCL)-affiliated authors. These collections promote the University’s research output in a unique and interactive format and are accessible on the newly launchedUCL Research Collections webpageand can also be found directly through ScienceOpen’s discovery platform. The collections are powered by ScienceOpen, utilizing the collection infrastructure of the platform. The research collections bring together thousands of records of UCL-authored published articles, pre-prints, book chapters, conference proceedings, working papers and reports from a global database into specific themes that are easily explorable in a user-friendly interface.
ScienceOpen is proud to announce our partnership with Spotlight on Research (SOR) to bring awareness to SOR’s open access, peer-reviewed health journals. Spotlight on Research’s mission is to be a leader in online, scholarly publishing in terms of access, quality, transparency, and fairness and to be the preferred peer-reviewed source for all who conduct and read health-related research. Its journals aim to improve the lives and health of populations by making high-quality, evidence-based health information freely available online. Content from the SOR journals is now featured on ScienceOpen in a featured Spotlight on Research Collection to promote the dissemination of its content to a wider base of readers and to place it in the context of 65 million other records of scholarly works.
We are happy to present to you a new open access journal hosted on ScienceOpen:Research for All by UCL Press. This journal is the fourth journal that was based at the UCL Institute of Education to join our interactive discovery environment of nearly 65 million academic and scientific records.
We are excited to highlight ournew partnership with the University of Buckingham Press (UBP)! UBP works closely with the University of Buckingham, a private university in England well known for its innovation and excellence in teaching. Values of the University carry over into the mission of UBP, which aims to help forge a future path for both education and university presses. Most recently, UBP launched a new education journal, The Buckingham Journal of Education. This journal, along with several others including the Journal of Prediction Markets, the Journal of Gambling and Business Economics, The Denning Law Journal, and the International Journal of Person Centered Medicine, join ScienceOpen’s discovery platform in featured collections. Content from all five journals will be encompassed by the University of Buckingham Press Super Collection. The collections, as standard, receive their own unique DOIs, adding to UBP’s discoverable and shareable content. With this new partnership, we are working together to promote the journals published by UBP, distribute content to key academic content repositories, and complete enhancement of metadata. Learn more about UBP and the new journals indexed on ScienceOpen below!
Help us inform others and get credit for it! At ScienceOpen, we are catalysing the information campaign around the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. Our Collections infrastructure is available to use free-of-charge, for both publishers and researchers alike. Everyone can join us to build a rich network of knowledge around the coronavirus, and each individual contribution is very important and valued on our platform!
In this post, we want to showcase a number of coronavirus-related Collections curated by researchers, and to present to you how to use the ScienceOpen platform to share own research and create digital resources for others to learn from.
ScienceOpen has released a Collection of COVID-19 research that highlights rigorous, peer-reviewed articles by reputable journals and publishers within the rapidly growing coronavirus knowledge base. Almost two dozen publishers have already participated in ScienceOpen’s initiative, bringing together 1000s of articles and enabling better discovery for the research community.
ScienceOpen offers powerful filters for enhanced discovery and interactive tools to recommend, review and share research. Publishers can create unique collection landing pages for their coronavirus-related content within the context of thousands of preprints and articles aggregated from around the world.
The fast-paced research that we need to quickly understand the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19 and effectively find treatments has changed how scientists are communicating their results. Many researchers are posting their findings as preprints to speed up data sharing, rather than waiting for peer review and publication in an academic journal. But publishers are also stepping up and providing expedited processes to make peer reviewed information available as fast as possible, collecting all relevant publications together and making those freely accessible during this crisis.
To ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in making research publicly accessible, Glossa articles are made available online as soon as they are ready. The journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
