ScienceOpen and JMIR Publications have worked together to develop two collections that promote quality research in digital health – these collections cover informatics, web or app-based interventions, misinformation, and beyond. The publications will be embedded in ScienceOpen’s discovery environment of over 76 million publications for increased visibility and will be placed in context with other relevant collections to increase the impact of the research even further.
The flagship title, Journal of Medical Internet Research, is a pioneer open-access journal in the field of health informatics, as well as one of the first international peer-reviewed journals dedicated to research in the application of information and using the Internet and other connected technologies to improve health outcomes. Given this history, ScienceOpen is especially pleased to announce the addition of two JMIR collections: the Research Protocols Collection and the Digital Health Collection.
The publications in these two collections will help ScienceOpen and JMIR achieve their goals of increasing global access to scientific knowledge.
The Digital Health Collection will highlight the breadth and quality of digital health research covered in the JMIR portfolio, with many of the articles featured being beneficiaries of Open Science best-practices such as open peer review. This collection covers disciplines JMIR is most well-known for including, but not limited to, public health surveillance, serious games, informatics, AI applications in healthcare, and mental health. Simultaneously, the JMIR Research Protocols Collection will showcase methodologies published in advance of results. Research Protocols provide clarity on a study’s capabilities, reduce bias toward positive results, and create an early citable record of innovative research – browsing this collection on ScienceOpen will engage authors with a variety of clinical studies across healthcare research, and encourage publication of a methodology for their next research project.
“As digital health continues its development as a highly inter-disciplinary field, the contextual discovery tools on ScienceOpen will help acquaint researchers in more traditional fields, such as cardiology, with the incredible work published in JMIR journals. Formalizing our presence on ScienceOpen through these collections is an exciting way to reach a new audience.”
– Adrian Stanley, General Manager of JMIR Publications
ScienceOpen’s unique search tools are based on citations, readability, Altmetric score, views, shares, and other factors. As a result, this collaboration highly benefits academics who are looking for high-quality, open-access publications in the field of digital health.
“JMIR is one of the most agile and innovative medical publishers in the STM digital publishing space. We are thrilled to be working with them to promote their content within the ScienceOpen discovery environment and look forward to an exciting partnership.”
– Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen
These two new collections will connect researchers and academics from around the world to the network of JMIR Publications, enhancing collaboration and the exchange of ideas while demonstrating the benefits of open-access publishing models.
