Science Open is a freely accessible platform for academic research. Articles, books and chapters can be read and downloaded free of charge and it currently hosts over 59 million articles, 25.000 journals and work by 26 million authors.
Create your own tailored collection Science Open allows users to create their own library collections to which they can add publications of interest to their subject area. Users can rate and recommend publications, view Altmetric scores and post their own comments about the research.
Science Open also provides researchers with a wide range of great tools, tailored to support research. These include creating a research profile, linking an ORCID account and a sophisticated multidimensional search function which allows for filtering up to 18 criteria.
Truly open research – removing barriers and increasingly discoverability At the University of Huddersfield Press, we believe that financial barriers should not prevent access to knowledge. This is not only advantageous to readers but also to researchers themselves. Open access publishing enables authors to reach a wider audience and increase the reach of their research. This also opens up academic research to an audience outside of the ‘traditional’ university environment, encouraging a free exchange of knowledge for practitioners, policymakers, students and more. Our growing partnership with Science Open is helping us to make our research truly accessible to all.
Huddersfield University Press Publications on Science Open From the University of Huddersfield Press, over 130 publications are now available on Science Open. These include:
Hello, I am Margaux and I’ll be joining the University of Huddersfield Press team this year. I’m a first-year PhD student, researching, in Applied Linguistics and more specifically conversation analysis. I did my MA in Applied Linguistics at Huddersfield and my BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences (cognitive neuroscience, computer science, statistics and linguistics) at University College Roosevelt. My research interests lie in the realms storytelling, reporting practices and conversation analysis.
I’ll be writing blog posts and providing you all with social media updates! I hope to get more experience in publishing and marketing, as I am not yet sure if I want to continue in academia but want to explore ways to apply my skills. My interest in languages and linguistics started with a passion for books and reading (and a curiosity that has irked classmates and teachers alike), so I thought that going ‘back to basics’ might be the best way to gain relevant professional experiences. I am excited to work for the University of Huddersfield Press as I value open access publishing and am a strong advocate for this. I dream that one day all research will be freely available.
My side projects include cooking and baking, and I run a small Facebook page where I sell homemade baked goods for their cost price to sustain this hobby. I then spend the profits I did not make on notebooks I don’t really need and books I will ‘definitely read this year and not just add to the ever-growing list’.
We are very excited to announce that, following the successful submission of 4 journals to the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) earlier this year, we have now had the Fields journal accepted too, bringing our total to 5 journals indexed in DOAJ!
We would like to say a big thank you to the DOAJ team for being helpful and supportive throughout the process, and we are very happy to see these high quality, open access journals, indexed and discoverable on the DOAJ platform.
