QScience Connect publishes first articles, debuts new functionality

Connotea Imports 2012-07-31


"QScience Connect is a new kind of peer-reviewed, open access journal which publishes research in all fields which meets the simple criteria of being ethical, valid and correct. No emphasis is placed on the perceived interest of the article, or the magnitude of the advance being described; rather the readers of the articles contribute to the evaluation process by reading and citing the article. The number of accesses of the article, and the number of times it is cited in other academic journals is a model of evaluation which makes the most of the online publishing environment....Authors are also encouraged to submit articles to the journal which may consist primarily of video or audio....QScience.com has also introduced an online commenting facility, linked to the readers’ social media accounts, which allows for direct communication on the article with the author and other readers....This new service adds to the already existing features of article-level metrics, measuring downloads and citations, and the personalization and mobile features of the site, allowing browsing of content and access to search alerts with Blackberry, iPhone and Android handsets. With all of our content being freely-available and open access, we believe these new developments improve the experience of accessing cutting edge research for both the scientific community and the public in general."
