Pensoft Integrated with OpenAIRE

Pensoft Publishers, publisher of books and open access journals in biodiversity and natural history, have now integrated their editorial management platform (Pensoft Journal System, or PJS) with the OpenAIRE platform. The integration will ensure that articles funded by the European Union’s Framework Program Seven (FP7) can automatically be harvested by OpenAIRE to make them even more visible and accessible to academia, industry and the general public.
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's 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 sea of information open access content stands out as being available for wide accessibility and reuse.

In collaboration with OpenAIRE, Pensoft Publishers have integrated their editorial management platform (Pensoft Journal System, or PJS) with the OpenAIRE harvesting mechanism. The integration will ensure that articles funded by the European Union’s Framework Program Seven (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.

altProf Dr Lyubomir Penev says: “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 Dr 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.

About OpenAIRE
OpenAIRE encourages publishers to support authors in open access publishing and dissemination, alert them about the availability of publication funds, allow immediate deposition in open access repositories and – last but not least – to register their journals at the OpenAIRE website. This suitably places publishers within research infrastructures which in turn allowing the seamless integration of European and world-wide research.
OpenAIRE is interested in hearing from any other publishers interested in exposing their content via another information infrastructure.
