ScienceOpen searches more than 27 million full text open access or article metadata records and puts them in context on an interactive platform.

You can engage with ScienceOpen by linking your author profile to ORCID, commenting, sharing and recommending content, as well as doing post publication peer review and creating your own collection from articles available on the platform.

SICOT-J is now accepted for indexing in PubMed Central and DOAJ

PubMed Central

The International Society of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT) and EDP Sciences are pleased to announce that their peer reviewed, open access journal SICOT-J has been accepted for indexing in PubMed Central and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).

Inclusion of SICOT-J in PubMed Central and DOAJ will provide international visibility and recognition for the journal’s authors.


EDP Sciences initiate “Pay What You Want” for article processing charges of Open Access Journal

EDP Sciences are one of the first publishers to initiate the “Pay What You Want” (PWYW) model for article processing charges (APCs) of Open Access Journals, where authors choose to pay their own fair price to publish their research.

SICOT-J, and a multidisciplinary journal covering the fields of surgery and engineering (to be announced and launched at the beginning of 2016) will use this model for APC payments from 1 January 2016. We will also introduce PWYW for other journals during the year.

All articles will still undergo rigorous peer-review, and receive the same exposure as any other article published by EDP Sciences, and importantly will be compliant with the mandates of agencies funding research and open access publication.
