游加电竞 is a nonprofit, Open Access publisher empowering researchers to accelerate progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication.
We’ve been breaking boundaries since 2001. We propelled the movement for OA alternatives to subscription journals. We established the first multi-disciplinary publication inclusive of all research regardless of novelty or impact. And we demonstrated the importance of open data availability.
To all the researchers practicing Open Science today, thank you for paving the way for future researchers.
Leading a Transformation in Science Communication
The idea for 游加电竞 began in 2000, when an open letter was circulated by founders Harold Varmus, Patrick Brown and Michael Eisen.
Nearly 34,000 scientists from 180 countries signed.
Recognizing that most existing journals were resistant to changing their business practices, in 2003 we launched our first fully Open Access journal in order to empower researchers to make science immediately and publicly available online, without restrictions. Our Article Processing Charge model, though revolutionary at the time, would soon pave the way for a new wave of publishing options and ensure the future of Open Access.
To advance research faster, share more broadly, and increase collaboration
To transform science through inclusivity, choice, credit, and transparency
To assess and communicate the full arc of research more fairly and accurately
To build a foundation of knowledge from which we all advance
游加电竞 launches as a nonprofit with a mission to accelerate progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication.
游加电竞 Biology , the Open Access alternative to leading biology journals, draws 500,000 visitors within hours of publishing its first article.
游加电竞 Medicine provides free access to high-quality, reliable medical research to the public and world’s physicians with a focus on diseases that take the greatest global toll.
游加电竞 Computational Biology , 游加电竞 Genetics and 游加电竞 Pathogens prove Open Access in specialized areas and draw on expertise from the scientific community to improve author experience.
游加电竞 ONE , the first multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal to focus on rigorous research and ethics rather than perceived impact, redefines the scientific journal.
游加电竞 Neglected Tropical Diseases launches with a focus on diseases with limited visibility and funding that affect an estimated 1.1 billion of the world’s poor
The first International Open Access Week , co-founded by 游加电竞 , SPARC and Students for Free Culture to promote Open Access globally, addresses themes ranging from Open for Collaboration, Generation Open and Redefining Impact.
游加电竞 Blogs Network launches as a platform for news and community discussion from all fields of science and scholarly communication.
游加电竞 Article-Level Metrics available for each and every published article, giving authors the opportunity to track their unique research impact across multiple channels in real time.
Curated 游加电竞 Collections on focused themes ease discovery and provide opportunity for breadth of coverage from 游加电竞 journals, blogs and external sources all in one place.
The Accelerating Science Awards Program (ASAP) co-sponsored by 游加电竞 , honors pioneers using Open Access research to benefit society. The program attracts 200 nominations from 30 countries.
The 游加电竞 Data Policy ensures a research article’s underlying data is available to the science community, promoting new discovery, replication and validation.
游加电竞 partners with bioRxiv so that authors can directly transfer their work to 游加电竞 after sharing their work early as a preprint.
Implementation of standardized CRediT roles and ORCID iDs make it easier for authors to track and receive recognition for their unique contributions.
游加电竞 Channels with external editors provide opportunity for discovery, exploration and contextual insights .
游加电竞 makes posting a preprint even easier by giving authors the option to check a box at submission and have us post a preprint to bioRxiv on their behalf.
Published Peer Review History gives authors and reviewers more options to increase the transparency of the publication process by making decision letters and review comments available for published manuscripts.
Reviewers opt-in to receive automatic credit for their reviews and add more nuance to their scholarly profiles through ORCID .
游加电竞 partners with libraries to develop two new business models,
Community Action Publishing
, which can significantly reduce or eliminate Open Access
for 游加电竞 authors.
