SciRev – Speeding Up Scientific Knowledge Production

January 31, 2018

SciRev – Speeding Up Scientific Knowledge Production
https://scirev.org/

SciRev.sc is a website made by researchers for researchers. The information they receive is freely available to the entire research community. By offering researchers the possibility to share their experience with the review process, they aim to make the scientific review process more transparent. Efficient journals get credits for their efforts to improve their review process and the way they handle manuscripts. Less efficient journals are stimulated to put energy in organizing things better. Researchers can search for a journal with a speedy review procedure and have their papers published earlier. Editors get the opportunity to compare their journal’s performance with that of others and to provide information about their journal at our website. Their new service, free scientific ads, is meant to strengthen communication among scientists across the globe. Given that their website is visited each day by thousands of researchers from all scientific fields, placing a SciRev ad provides a unique opportunity to send out a message to the global scientific community. The SciRev website is facilitated by the SciRev Foundation, which aims to help science by making the peer review process more efficient. This process is one of the weakest links in the process of scientific knowledge production. Valuable new knowledge lays untouched at reviewers’ desks and editorial offices for extended periods of time. This is an unnecessary loss of time in the scientific process which otherwise has become much more efficient. SciRev helps speeding up this process by making it more transparent. Researchers get the possibility to share their review experiences with their colleagues, who therefore can make a better informed choice for a journal to submit their work to. Journals that manage to set up a more efficient review process and which handle manuscripts better are rewarded for this and may attract more and better manuscripts.

Cofactor – Journal Selector

January 31, 2018

Cofactor – Journal Selector
http://cofactorscience.com/

The idea for Cofactor arose out of the experience of their founder, Anna Sharman. In her years in the lab as a biologist, as a journal editor and as a freelance editor Anna saw the disconnect between what researchers submitted to journals and what the journals wanted. She saw how journals are cutting costs and offering less copyediting and proofreading of research papers after they are accepted, relying instead on authors to get their papers checked. She saw how quickly the world of scientific publishing is changing and how difficult researchers find it to keep up with new developments. She learnt about open access, new forms of peer review, new ways of processing and presenting research results, and new standards for publication. Finding this new world exciting, Anna wanted to help researchers navigate their way through the publication process. And Anna wanted to help researchers. She had been a PhD student and postdoc herself, struggling to publish enough to get the next job, so she knew the pressures researchers are under. After fifteen years working for publishers she decided to change her focus to helping scientists. So she gathered a team of highly qualified freelance editors around her and launched Cofactor. Now Cofactor has been established for over three years and has over 50 freelance editors. Our workshops have taken place in more than 20 universities and institutes in the UK, Europe and further afield. Hundreds of scientists have benefited from Cofactor’s expert editing and advice, and many more will in the future. In biochemistry, a cofactor is a small molecule or even an atom that helps an enzyme to do its job. Cofactor is here to help you do your job as a scientist.

Journal Reviewer

January 30, 2018

Journal Reviewer
http://www.journalreviewer.org/

JournalReviewer is an independent site that aggregates information users provide about their experience with academic journals’ review processes so that others can be as informed as possible as they consider journal submissions. Their goal is to provide users with detailed information to help them choose the best journal for the specific details of their unique submission situation. Academic journal publishers and related organizations provide a lot of information about their journals. Editors. Editorial boards. Impact factors. Submission guidelines. That information is very helpful. If you’re a researcher publishing in academic journals, though, it’s very likely you’ve heard someone ask for, wonder about, or wish for other information about journals that isn’t so easy to find. How many reviews will a manuscript get? How thorough are the reviews? How long does it actually take to get a review back? Is the feedback helpful? After a typical discussion with a colleague who was experiencing a long manuscript review period and wondering if it was normal for that journal, they decided that they could pool the experiences of journal submitters to provide even more useful information about academic journals than what is typically available. Thus, JournalReviewer was born. As a supplement to the information provided by journals and organizations that rank and index them, JournalReviewer collects and aggregates feedback from users who have submitted manuscripts to journals to provide an information resource for others considering journal submissions.

RunMyCode – Enables Scientists To Openly Share the Code and Data That Underlie Their Research Publications
http://www.runmycode.org/

RunMyCode is an online repository allowing people to share and download computer code and data associated with scientific publications (articles and working papers). The RunMyCode website is operated by a not-profit making scientific association called the RunMyCode Association. The mission of the Association is to make academic easier to use and easier to replicate. RunMyCode is currently funded by several national research agencies and universities. RunMyCode follows three main objectives: The first objective is to allow researchers to quickly disseminate internationally the results of their research, which will considerably increase the potential of citations of scientific papers. The second objective is to provide a very large community of users with the ability to use the latest scientific methods. This will speed up the process of converting scientific results into productive forces. The third objective is to allow members of the academic community (researchers, editors, referees, etc.) to replicate scientific results and to demonstrate their robustness. A companion website is a website allowing people to download the computer code and data associated with a scientific publication (articles and working papers). A companion website consists of three main parts. The upper panel provides information about the publication including title, authors, link to the abstract and paper. The central panel presents the “RunMyCoders”, i.e., the researchers who share their code and data. Note that they may or may not be the authors of the publication. The lower panel includes a presentation of the files available for download, as well as some statistics about the companion website.

exec&share – Sharing Code and Data That Underlies Research Publications
http://www.execandshare.org/

exec&share is a novel cloud-based platform that enables scientists to openly share the code and data that underlie their research publications. This service is based on the innovative concept of a companion website associated with a scientific publication. The code is run on a computer cloud server and the results are immediately displayed to the user. As simple as 1,2,3: 1) A researcher has an idea; 2) The researcher writes a paper based on this idea; AND 3) Using exec&share, the researcher creates a companion website associated with this paper. The companion website allows people to implement the methodology presented in the paper. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
