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.
