Future Science Group expands its partnership with ScienceOpen
Future Science Group (FSG) is pleased to announce it has expanded its partnership with ScienceOpen, with two new collections featuring the journals BioTechniques and Future Drug Discovery.
ScienceOpen is an interactive discovery platform that provides advanced search functions along with options such as post-publication review and recommendations.
“Discovery of scientific research, and being able to see that research in context, is hugely important to enable further, successful scientific research,” explained Francesca Lake, Head of Open Access Publishing at Future Science Group. “At Future Science Group we support ScienceOpen’s mission to facilitate open and public communication between academics, and are delighted to be partnering with them on these two exciting journals.”
BioTechniques launched in 1983 and is a leading peer-reviewed journal for methods-related research in the life sciences.
Future Drug Discovery launched in 2019, and provides readers with an open access and high quality source of methods, research and review articles covering the entire drug discovery, R&D pipeline, alongside opinion articles discussing the field at large.
Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen, commented “In fast moving fields like drug discovery and biotech it is essential to get research published as quickly and distributed as widely as possible. We are thrilled to support the Future Science Group with two new open access journals that are pushing their fields forward and exploring open communication around their content.”
