PubPub is a platform that enables the exploration of three core experiments: 1) author-driven publishing, 2) distributed and dynamic peer review, and 3) grassroots journals that serve as tools for curation. Through these three experiments, we seek to uncover new paths and opportunities for collaborative publishing.
PRINCIPIA is a transparent blockchain-powered ecosystem for peer-review of scientific outputs (ie, papers, patents, …). The platform allows users, including existing publishing groups, to create and manage peer-reviewed journals.
PRINCIPIA is a free market where researchers and publishers exchange crypto-tokens for journals, reviews and publications. Output is automatically open access.
PRINCIPIA’s referees are remunerated for their efforts and quality reviews. At variance with the traditional peer-review system, good referees are transparently and automatically rewarded in crypto-tokens for their commitment.
PRINCIPIA naturally allows to recognize prestige of users and journals, with an intrinsic reputation system which does not depend on third-parties and heuristics.
PRINCIPIA scores the reputation of a journal according to the reputation of the corresponding editorial committee. This facilitates groups of people with high reputation to bootstrap new journals.
Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library, with start-up funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is now jointly managed by the Cornell Library and Duke University Press. It was originally created to provide a platform for small scholarly publishers of mathematics and statistics journals to move from print to electronic in a cost-effective way.
Through a combination of support by subscribing libraries and participating publishers, over 70% of the journal articles hosted on Project Euclid are openly available. As of 2018, Project Euclid hosts 1.8 million pages of open-access content.
Project Euclid’s mission is to provide powerful, low-cost online hosting and publishing services for theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics scholarship worldwide. As a non-profit community-driven international partnership of academic libraries, independent and society scholarly publishers, and scholars, Project Euclid actively supports broad, sustainable access to this scholarship.
What is Scinapse?
Scinapse is a free search engine for academic papers. As of April 2019, it indexes more than 200 million articles from more than 40,000 journals. It has more than 300,000 visitors on a monthly basis, as of April 2019.
Scinapse currently runs on a database collected from four major sources, namely Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), Semantic Scholar Open Research Corpus (ORC), Springer Nature SciGraph, and PubMed. Refer to each source to investigate what they cover. Scinapse does not cover anything else.
A group of highly talented engineers and researchers who are passionate about scholarly communication.
We’re here to break down barriers in academia.
Not only do we enjoy solving problems surrounding the academia world, but we also plan to open a new era of research and academia through new forms of exchanging information and knowledge. By supporting universities and scholars through technology, we believe scholarly communication can fully be powered by researchers.
We provide a SaaS solution that includes both a discovery and academic search engine customized for your institution.
It also comes with a consultancy-based solution, in which we provide real feedback on how you can cut back on your subscriptions based on what your researchers need and don’t need, as well as how to provide the most resourceful environment for your scholars and researchers.
We help walk through your subscriptions and bundles, and visually compare search results to identify what improvements and reductions can be made for your university.
The publication platform of the Max Weber Foundation
The Max Weber Foundation (MWS) is a federal foundation. It currently maintains ten research institutes as well as several branch offices or temporary research groups in a total of 13 countries and a joint office in Bonn. MWS is intensively involved in the field of digital publishing and Open Access. Since 2008, it provides the publication platform perspectivia.net for the publication and dissemination of the scientific results of its institutes. Providing free access to research results is perspectivia.net’s core mission.
Free access to knowledge
The electronic publication platform perspectivia.net sees itself as an international, epoch-spanning and interdisciplinary portal for publications in the humanities. As an infrastructure of the Max Weber Foundation – German Humanities Institutes Abroad, the publications published by the institutes and their cooperation partners are made freely accessible here. The Max Weber Foundation is committed to the principles of Open Access and perspectivia.net promotes free access to knowledge and accompanies the transformation of the humanities towards an open science.
In the publication series on perspectivia.net you will find both texts already published in print (retrodigital copies) and genuine online publications. All types of scholarly texts are represented, from journals, monographs and anthologies to workshop and conference reports, individual lectures and reviews. In addition, the platform presents extensive image material as well as audio and video files. Since basic research is one of the Max Weber Foundation’s special concerns, perspectivia.net increasingly provides database solutions for the presentation of source editions.
Orvium is the scientific publishing platform that helps researchers and institutions to share their work, create open access journals, and streamline peer review.
