“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.”

Frauke Ralf, Thieme

“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

New partnership with Cold Spring Harbor

November 22, 2016


At ScienceOpen we’re pleased to announce yet another new publishing partnership with Cold Spring Harbor. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press is an internationally renowned publisher of books, journals, and electronic media, located on Long Island, New York, USA. Since 1933, it has helped to advance scientific knowledge in all areas of genetics and molecular biology, including cancer biology, plant science, bioinformatics, and neurobiology.

Cold Spring Harbor Molecular Case Studies is an open access, peer reviewed, international journal in the field of precision medicine. Anyone can now freely browse, sort, and peer review any content from the journal using our advanced discovery engine.


Articles display scores from Altmetric, and like all other open access content on our platform display the little OA logo. Integrated into our existing corpus of 26 million articles and article records, Cold Spring Harbor content will be put into context through our citation and recommendation network.

For more information about our indexing services, please contact our Marketing Manager Agata Morka (agata.morka@scienceopen.com). We are still running our free indexing competition for APC-free open access journals, so get in touch if you qualify!

Platinum indexing for platinum journals

November 22, 2016

Thank you to everyone who applied for the latest round of ScienceOpen’s free indexing competition! Following the major success of the first round, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering free abstracting and indexing services for the following journals:

  1. Il Capitale Culturale. Studies on the Value of Cultural Heritage
  2. Open Access Journal of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants
  3. Anti-Trafficking Review
  4. Path of Science

We also decided that one journal deserves a special free promotional journal collection: Anti-Trafficking Review. Congratulations!

Free to publish OA journals offer an incredible service to the research community and broader public, with editors often working long hours with little-no compensation. We want to recognise this effort and reward it with free indexing on our platform! But why should journal editors care?
