um my name is uh about the uh yeah i'm i'm human resources unreleased hot frontiers me yeah
front yours is a company that has been created here because though
in two thousand seven by each would be further research or during come in my room
and they ten years later we are one of the biggest the
open access publisher word while we have over two hundred employees
and we have offices bows in europe in the us in china in india
frontier journal over into our academic spectrum uh so we currently have fifty seven journals
uh we for a hundred and forty academics disturbing and many of
them within the live science and engineering domain and this
might be more particular interest for some of you uh within growing exponentially over the last three to four years
and today we do have some of our journal which are
the most sighted juror no a month so connected you
uh that's count for feel like psychology neuroscience
physiology immunology plan science remarkably it's
and being open access our our our articles are also received
two hundred thirty million views and download and as you
can see from ah particularly from high tech area such as this become barlow condition then he rounds fine
how we have done it we have created a community around open access journals
a way of guided tours from top universe across the world but we have also invested heavily in technology
creating a very sophisticated platform that enhanced the collaboration
between research agree bruce's appeared you but also maximise the
dissemination of the work and provide a more
of a democratic way over the weighting the research
to both article and water level input matrix
um we are very proud for whatever being able to achieve so
far and i just want to spend a minute or so
explain why why do we believe that we need to open a rapid access to reach a result today
we do know that science technology drive economy girls are we do also
no more that there are a number of a series of bottlenecks
uh even region cycle firstly we have still
very limited access to research literature worldwide
eighty eight percent research paper today perceive behind expensive
subscription pay well and even universes such as hard or as you can see in this article
from the garden say that it cannot afford anymore don't uh probably should it's it's
the second bottleneck is that we have created the
rejection cascade mechanism which massively slowdown research
researcher tend to some either paper try to summon the paper to prestige don't such as natures
and what you have is then ninety seven percent of this article
that are actually rejected because somebody consider not a revolution enough
uh we think that this is a huge waste of time that somehow should be stopped
better than last bottleneck is that we need to use the uh smart upgrade them to think buys research
mainly because we cannot really cool anymore with the amount of data and increase number of articles get get
publish every year crossbow and many company obviously have already relies that so they're invested huge really
uh in artificial intelligence and in that the technology and frontiers is also using current
it official intelligence for for example finding rather review work for that day but
there are some added to our journal but also for suggesting resorts are reading
this so that not actually meets an important article within their given field
so why would why i'm dropping an open access to research so important
well because there's a technology have been driven a good that
will continue to drive modest visitation references we're trying to
uh play a role in that by having it for five years plan
well we're a mutt publishing one hundred thousand article yeah it's in order
to realise that they leading example for adoption transformation to open access
uh well we have also created in opens a science plan for sustainability
because we believe assigned issued a much more central role in driving us to what the system feature
if i don't want to see more more people than gauges signs including jeter
so this is a quote from one of our work cheaper editor for one of our journal and this can really to you
uh it says the more people will have access to reliable knowledge and can access it easily the more
quickly can understand how to do business with pieces of living on hers to sustain to sustainable boss
um this is building or whatever your page uh we do as as
you can see a lot of different availability across different department
apparently are therefore if you are interested in more please contact me after the presentation
