NGO Association «Open Science» has launched a new open access repository with more than 900 000 papers on board.

Our small team believes that information becomes knowledge when it is perceived by the majority of people without any borders. Scientific information has very strong geographical boundaries, and our project is a step to make access to research borderless and robust worldwide.

CyberLeninka technologies helped us to become the fourth repository in the world (1) with our Russian-language project (2) (3). In the year 2017, we have managed to deliver 100,000,000 research papers to 22,000,000 readers (4). We hope that our expertise will significantly boost visibility and coverage of Open Access research worldwide.

“Knowledge accessibility is an important component of any scientific or educational process. In this sense, the efforts of CyberLeninka regarding aggregation and structuring of the scientific publications are significant. However, we need to understand that this is only the starting point of the long and difficult process of gathering and structuring the whole (not only open access) spectrum of scientific publications.”, — comments Sir Konstantin Sergeevich Novoselov.

On the global education market of $5 trillion, we aim to build the infrastructure uniting people all over the world who study and research into global knowledge ecosystem.

We believe that the new cyberinfrastructure will benefit from two promising technologies: blockchain and artificial intelligence which can help in solving many challenges in modern scholarly communication.

Adoption of blockchain will reduce transaction costs and lead to openness and universal accessibility of modern knowledge. Artificial intelligence will power academic search to deliver the most important new scientific discoveries to researcher and drastically reduce time to find them. Also, these technologies can help to increase trust and transparency, boost research and peer-review quality and speed, plagiarism detection, research evaluation and address reproducibility and publication bias issues.
