IntechOpen, the first native scientific publisher of Open Access books, is seeking contributors for its upcoming “IntechOpen Women in Science 2018” Book Collection. The program aims to support women scientists worldwide whose academic needs include quality assurance, peer-review, fast publishing, collaboration among complementary authors, immediate exposure, and post-publishing citation reporting.
“We’ve created a platform where women who make significant contributions to sciences can publish their findings in a way that gives their work immediate international exposure,” said Alex Lazinica, IntechOpen CEO, co-founder and scientist. “The ultimate goal of any researcher is to share a discovery for the benefit of humanity. We want women to get the recognition they deserve for playing an important role in scientific leadership, while at the same time answering the academic community’s needs for fast publishing in an Open Access environment where access to knowledge is open to all.”
