ScienceOpen and Tsinghua University Press partner to increase impact of Chinese research

(22 May 2019) The discovery platform ScienceOpen is partnering with Tsinghua University Press (TUP) to contextualize and promote Chinese research within an interactive research environment. This partnership integrates six TUP journals as featured collections in the ScienceOpen Super Collection ‘Tsinghua University Press’.

Tsinghua University Press started its international outreach in the 1990s and has ever since been actively involved in the international exchange of scientific research. Thanks to the resources of Tsinghua University, TUP has been one of the key players in the Chinese academic and higher education publishing landscape. With its freely accessible, interactive discovery environment of over 55 million article records, ScienceOpen places TUP’s journal content within a broad international research framework.

Lei Shi, Director of the Journal Center of Tsinghua University Press says “We are very happy to work with ScienceOpen. Tsinghua University Press is committed to publishing high-level English academic journals to the world, striving to improve the display of articles and serving the academic activities of sharing, openness and socialization of scientists in China and around the world.”

ScienceOpen will feature six TUP journals in the ‘Tsinghua University Press’ Super Collection, including Tsinghua Science and Technology, Journal of Advanced Ceramics, and Friction. ScienceOpen’s customized search engine increases the discoverability of TUP’s journal content, while interactive features such as community curation and article reviews benefit the authors by facilitating public engagement with their research – with in-depth statistics to reflect it.

Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen, says “We are excited to work with the very prestigious Tsinghua University to promote their journals. Global exchange and outreach are critical to our mission and we expect to learn a lot from this partnership.”

ScienceOpen and Tsinghua University Press hope this partnership will increase the impact of Chinese research for the benefit of wider scientific community.
