Improve academic rigor and reproducibility

Publish all significant contributions to research

Our diverse article types enable individuals in all research roles and career stages to get credit for their work and tell the full story of their research.


Increase discoverability

Articles that pass peer review are indexed in Scopus and PubMed, where relevant, and Google Scholar to support discoverability and the academic record. All articles benefit from our expertise in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).


Foster trust and confidence in research

Discover a post-publication, fully open peer review model which puts transparency and reproducibility at the center. This model also ensures we comply with funder open access mandates, including PLAN S.


Support research evaluation and impact reporting   

We capture comprehensive grant funding details alongside extensive article information to facilitate funding links and attribution.


Accelerate knowledge sharing   

Articles are published rapidly after submission so that other researchers can build on existing findings faster.
