Science produced on the open web

The current academic publishing system faces critical challenges, including restricted access, high costs, lack of transparency in peer review processes, and reliance on closed, proprietary, and outdated technologies.

On the one hand, akin to the large internet platforms, multinational monopolistic publishing corporations use surveillance technologies to exploit researchers’ user data. On the other hand, the huge sums these corporations are extracting from scholarly institutions for the privilege of publishing and/or accessing knowledge means that researchers experience a dearth of resources and infrastructure for collecting, archiving and making digital research data accessible.

This perpetuates a system where knowledge is inaccessible, hindering scientific progress, collaboration and dissemination.

The Open Science Network tackles these challenges by providing a decentralised, open-source digital space dedicated to scientific collaboration, knowledge dissemination, peer-review and production.

Proposed features

  • Sign in with ORCID
  • Automatically import and discover publications from user profile or through search
  • Collaboratively draft, review & publish papers
  • Create & Join federated Groups and Topics
  • Labelling misleading content

Community driven

We're committed to designing and developing open science tools through continuous iteration alongside the involved communities. We have identified four initial focal topics to focus on as pilot programs, exploring various domains of open science — production, sharing, discussion, and peer review.

Participants in each pilot will ensure the digital space meets their specific needs and priorities. Are you interested in participating in one of the pilots? Please contact us at team@openscience.network
