ScienceOpen partners with PeerJ to support Computer Science research

The research network ScienceOpen is pleased to announce a new partnership with PeerJ. ScienceOpen is a next-generation research discovery platform, and PeerJ is an award-winning open access publisher.

PeerJ will be indexing one of their flagship open access journals, PeerJ Computer Science, with ScienceOpen. PeerJ Computer Science is the new open access journal covering all subject areas in computer science, with the backing of a prestigious advisory board and more than 300 academic editors.

Jason Hoyt, co-founder and CEO of PeerJ said “Computer Science has traditionally been published in conference proceedings, so an Open Access journal is a relatively new scholarly channel, but one that we believe the community is ready to embrace. To get there though, Open Access needs more visibility and that’s why we’re thrilled to be working with ScienceOpen.”

Content from this multidisciplinary journal will show data provided by Altmetric to show users how the articles have been discussed, mentioned or shared in online sources including mainstream news outlets, blogs, and a variety of social media outlets. Along with citation information, these data can be used to sort, and filter articles to find relevant research and enhance research discoverability. All articles can be openly peer reviewed post-publication, shared, recommended, and are placed into the context of more than 25 million article records on the ScienceOpen platform.

CEO of ScienceOpen Stephanie Dawson said “We are excited to have PeerJ Computer Science joining the rest of the research PeerJ published on our platform. PeerJ is one of the leading and most innovative open access publishers, and we are happy to see them continuing to help push the curve for scholarly communication.”
