OpenReview – Openess in Scientific Communications
https://openreview.net/

OpenReview aims to promote openness in scientific communication, particularly the peer review process, by providing a flexible cloud-based web interface and underlying database API enabling the following: 1) Open Peer Review: We provide a configurable platform for peer review that generalizes over many subtle gradations of openness, allowing conference organizers, journals, and other “reviewing entities” to configure the specific policy of their choice. We intend to act as a testbed for different policies, to help scientific communities experiment with open scholarship while addressing legitimate concerns regarding confidentiality, attribution, and bias; 2) Open Publishing: Track submissions, coordinate the efforts of editors, reviewers and authors, and host… Sharded and distributed for speed and reliability; 3) Open Access: Free access to papers for all, free paper submissions. No fees; 4) Open Discussion: Hosting of accepted papers, with their reviews, comments. Continued discussion forum associated with the paper post acceptance. Publication venue chairs/editors can control structure of review/comment forms, read/write access, and its timing; 5) Open Directory: Collection of people, with conflict-of-interest information, including institutions and relations, such as co-authors, co-PIs, co-workers, advisors/advisees, and family connections; 6) Open Recommendations: Models of scientific topics and expertise. Directory of people includes scientific expertise. Reviewer-paper matching for conferences with thousands of submissions, incorporating expertise, bidding, constraints, and reviewer balancing of various sorts. Paper recommendation to users; 7) Open API: We provide a simple REST API for accessing and uploading records of people, their groupings, document content, invitations and reviewing assignments, conflict-of-interest designations, and reviewing workflow patterns. You can then write scripts , all with a clear, robust model of read/write permissions. Track submissions, monitor review process, send customized bulk email messages, automate workflow actions; and 8) Open Source: We are committed to open source. Look for our public repo on GitHub soon. This will be added to Open Educational Resources (OER) Sources 2019. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

ShortScience – Platform for Post-Publication Discussion
http://www.shortscience.org/

ShortScience.org is a platform for post-publication discussion aiming to improve accessibility and reproducibility of research ideas. The website has 1160 public summaries, mostly in machine learning, written by the community and organized by paper, conference, and year. Reading summaries of papers is useful to obtain the perspective and insight of another reader, why they liked or disliked it, and their attempt to demystify complicated sections. Also, writing summaries is a good exercise to understand the content of a paper because you are forced to challenge your assumptions when explaining it. Finally, you can keep up to date with the flood of research by reading the latest summaries on our Twitter and Facebook pages. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
