This Collection comprises all articles published in ScienceOpen Research (ISSN 2199-1006)
Submit your preprint via the “Submit a manuscript” button on our ScienceOpen Preprints collection page. The simple upload form allows you to link your ORCID ID, add co-authors, declare funding, link to datasets and more. After submission your preprint will undergo a quick editorial review to check for completeness and basic scholarly integrity in line with our general publication guidelines. After acceptance by the editorial team, the preprint will be published on ScienceOpen with a Crossref DOI, a CC BY 4.0 attribution license and a preprint flag. Preprint publication is free of charge.
If your preprint has been published online with a Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY 4.0 license to ScienceOpen Preprints and assigned a Crossref pre-print DOI (Digital Object Identifier) that may be added to your ORCID record: Your research is now open for community peer review on ScienceOpen but has been not peer-reviewed in this stage. We therefore encourage you to invite reviewers and gather feedback on the ScienceOpen platform and share your work widely in social networks or by e-mail (you can make conveniently use of that function on the document site). This is an important step either to receive qualified feedback by peers in order to improve your work or to confirm and approve your findings.
If you will have received at least 2 positive statements by peers as peer review, you can decide to let us finally publish your work after a potential revision, copyediting and typesetting (to be provided by ScienceOpen) as publication on ScienceOpen Research. See how it works: https://about.scienceopen.com/publish/ or just contact me please to let me assist you.
If you have any questions, your feedback is particularly welcome, just contact me, the Editor-in-Chief.
