We at Magnificat CLM are proud to belong to the strong, global movement for openness in science and academe, of which ScienceOpen is a crucial instance. Grateful that SO took us in its stride towards a future of collaboration for boundless research.

“It is a great pleasure to work on cooperation with ScienceOpen. We are happy to have entered our 18-months trial for three of our very successful scientific journals. The very positive results of this trial speak for themselves and we are looking into options to continue our cooperation. ScienceOpen is very successfully putting Open Access into practice by benefitting from well established OA-services such as PMC, integrating all facettes of it into one platform and create a trusted open scientific environment not only for authors but also for all other stakeholders in the communities. It is Open Science consequently thought through and ScienceOpen has a great future.”

“River Publishers worked with the ScienceOpen team to get several of our international journals indexed in the ScienceOpen database, and the results are proving to be very productive. The service which SO provided was excellent.”

Mark de Jongh, River Publishers

“By indexing articles in ScienceOpen we put our authors’ research in a wider context and hope to increase the readership and discoverability of our journals.”

Sam Bruinsma, Brill

“As we publish more and more, discoverability, aggregation, and indexing remain important in the digital publishing landscape. Working with ScienceOpen has been a pleasure in this respect, allowing us to ensure that high-quality, open-access humanities research material reaches the broadest audiences.”

Professor Martin Paul Eve, Birbkeck, University of London and co-CEO of the OLH

Welcome to ScienceOpen version 2.017

January 3, 2017

Kick off the new year with the new unified search on ScienceOpen! We have accomplished a lot over the last year and are looking forward to supporting the academic community in 2017.

In 2016 ScienceOpen brought you more context: Now your search comes with a new analytics bar that breaks down your search results by collections, journals, publishers, disciplines, and keywords for quicker filtering. Try a search for the pressing topics of 2016 like Zika or CRISPR and take the new features for a spin.

Researcher output, journal content, reference lists, citing articles can all be dynamically sorted and explored via Altmetric score, citations, date, activity. Statistics for journals, publishers and authors give overview of the content that we are indexing on ScienceOpen. Check out the most relevant journals on ScienceOpen, for example BMC Infectious Diseases or PloS Genetics for a new perspective. Or add your publications to your ORCID and get a dynamic view of your own output.

In 2016 ScienceOpen brought you more content: We welcomed publisher customers across the entire spectrum of disciplines to ScienceOpen and expect many more for the upcoming year. We added multiple journals from Brill, River Publishers, Open Library of Humanities, Higher Education Press and featured collections for PeerJ Computer Science, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press Molecular Case Studies and the Italian Society for Victimology. We had the pleasure to work with a very diverse group, from STM to HSS, from open access to subscription-based journals, creating interdisciplinary bridges and new connections for their content. We further integrated all of SciELO on ScienceOpen this year for a more global perspective and have had a great time working with them. We are at over 27 million article records and adding content every day.

Dynamic view of author’s works on ScienceOpen profile

January 3, 2017

With the launch of our new unified search interface, we restructured the Author Profile page on ScienceOpen, providing dynamic ways to explore an author’s output.

For a very prolific author like Ray Dolan, Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL and author of 674 articles, it can be hard work for a reader to even just scroll through the titles of his total output. The new ScienceOpen author profile, however, provides the researcher a variety of avenues to delve into this content on their own terms. They can sort publications by Altmetric score, citations, usage, date or reviews – to find the view that fits their needs.

The left side-bar overview shows top collections, journals, publishers, keywords and disciplines. Users can also search within the publication list with a free-text search or add up to 14 filters to find exactly the content that is relevant to them.
