Humanities Content on ScienceOpen

ScienceOpen features humanities and social sciences research

Although our name may suggest a focus on the physical and natural sciences, ScienceOpen works with all types of scholarly publishers. Many of our partners are publishing in the fields of humanities and social sciences (HSS), and so ScienceOpen is a great resource for research in these areas in addition to STEM subjects. In this post, we are pleased to highlight some very interesting and recently added HSS content and Collections on the platform.

Plants, Animals, Fungi, Oh My! Biodiversity and Ecology Research on ScienceOpen

Plants, Animals, Fungi, Oh My! Biodiversity and Ecology Research on ScienceOpen

Biodiversity and Ecology Research

The biodiversity, or number of different species of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and insects, of our planet is so important. Each ecosystem is a complex network of organisms that interact with their physical environment. Human activity has been highly disruptive to the biodiversity of the planet, with scientists showing evidence that we are in the midst of a sixth mass extinction event due to “accelerated modern human–induced species losses” (Ceballos, 2015). However, this reality does not have to stay so grim. Through research, intervention, and conservation, there are huge efforts underway to prevent species loss and combat global warming. Plus, it seems as if the younger generations, led by activists like Greta Thunberg, are sparking change in government policy and the culture. Additionally, only last year the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) reported some hopeful news that populations of tigers in India and Nepal, African elephants in Namibia, black rhinos, giant pandas, and mountain gorillas are in recovery!

In this post, we’re highlighting research papers from Collections on ScienceOpen that cover biodiversity and ecology. These Collections range from researcher-led collections on very specialized topics to broad publisher collections that contain content from multiple journals. It is our vision that through our Collections infrastructure, important research will be more discoverable and therefore accelerate scientific communication so that fields, such as ecology, can progress faster.
