Brill Partners with ScienceOpen to Put Linguistics Research into Context

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 5 August 2016

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, is pleased to announce a pilot with research network ScienceOpen.

As of September 2016, three of Brill’s Linguistics journals will be indexed on the ScienceOpen platform. This includes adding of article-level metadata, reference analysis and linking back to Brill’s Books and Journals platform (http://booksandjournals.brillonline.com/). By indexing journals with ScienceOpen, Brill content will show usage data provided by Altmetric to inform users on how the articles have been discussed, mentioned or shared in online sources, including mainstream news outlets, blogs, and a variety of social networks. These data can be used to sort and filter articles in order to find relevant research and enhance research discoverability.

Sam Bruinsma, Senior Vice President Business Development at Brill, commented: “Research published in our Linguistics journals is not just of interest to specialists in Linguistics, but of relevance to Humanists in fields such as Anthropology, Archaeology, Classics, History or regional studies. By indexing articles in ScienceOpen we put our author’s research in a wider context and hope to increase the readership and discoverability of our journals.”

CEO of ScienceOpen Stephanie Dawson said: “We want to bring all research together into one place. We will progress further and faster when the Humanities, Social Sciences and Physical Sciences are all brought together, instead of occupying isolated silos, and are happy to integrate Brill content into our platform.”

This pilot includes the journals Language, Dynamics and Change (www.brill.com/ldc) and the full Open Access titles Journal of Greek Linguistics (www.brill.com/jgl) and Indo-European Linguistics (www.brill.com/ieul).
