Pensoft Publishers integrate their journal platform with OpenAIRE
Date:1/24/2013

For a piece of information to be of any use, one must first be able to find it. In the past, information was scarce. Nowadays, there is often just too much of it. We are helped by thousands of computers who read the web day and night, assisting us to find, digest and comprehend it. In this "ocean" of information, open access stands out as being the solution for a barrier-free accessibility of content that can be harvested, extracted, sorted out and indexed by machines.

In collaboration with OpenAIRE, Pensoft Publishers have integrated their editorial management platform (Pensoft Journal System) with the OpenAIRE harvesting mechanism. The integration will ensure that articles funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Program (FP7) can automatically be tracked by OpenAIRE to make them even more visible and accessible. Funding agencies and institutions can now easily find and access publications resulting from projects supported by public funds.

"It is of utmost importance to offer publications and data in ways that are machine-readable as well as human-usable. Otherwise, it just adds to the noise. The highly structured texts Pensoft publishes facilitate reading, text-mining and re-use of data. We are pleased to welcome Pensoft's open access journals to the OpenAIRE collection," says Prof Dr Norbert Lossau, coordinator of the OpenAIRE project.

"Pensoft supports barrier-free access to science," says Prof Lyubomir Penev, Managing Director of Pensoft. "As a publisher of several innovative open-access journals, we know firsthand that openness and standardization are the way forward. We are more than glad to cooperate with OpenAIRE in providing scientists and funding agencies with an integrated platform for better visibility of their research and sponsoring efforts. We look forward to future collaboration, such as making publications from other funding schemes easily accessible and thus more visible," Prof Penev concludes.
