um my name is uh about the uh yeah i'm i'm human resources unreleased hot frontiers me yeah
00:00:13
front yours is a company that has been created here because though
00:00:17
in two thousand seven by each would be further research or during come in my room
00:00:22
and they ten years later we are one of the biggest the
00:00:27
open access publisher word while we have over two hundred employees
00:00:31
and we have offices bows in europe in the us in china in india
00:00:37
frontier journal over into our academic spectrum uh so we currently have fifty seven journals
00:00:44
uh we for a hundred and forty academics disturbing and many of
00:00:49
them within the live science and engineering domain and this
00:00:53
might be more particular interest for some of you uh within growing exponentially over the last three to four years
00:01:01
and today we do have some of our journal which are
00:01:06
the most sighted juror no a month so connected you
00:01:10
uh that's count for feel like psychology neuroscience
00:01:14
physiology immunology plan science remarkably it's
00:01:20
and being open access our our our articles are also received
00:01:25
two hundred thirty million views and download and as you
00:01:28
can see from ah particularly from high tech area such as this become barlow condition then he rounds fine
00:01:36
how we have done it we have created a community around open access journals
00:01:41
a way of guided tours from top universe across the world but we have also invested heavily in technology
00:01:48
creating a very sophisticated platform that enhanced the collaboration
00:01:53
between research agree bruce's appeared you but also maximise the
00:01:57
dissemination of the work and provide a more
00:02:01
of a democratic way over the weighting the research
00:02:04
to both article and water level input matrix
00:02:11
um we are very proud for whatever being able to achieve so
00:02:15
far and i just want to spend a minute or so
00:02:19
explain why why do we believe that we need to open a rapid access to reach a result today
00:02:26
we do know that science technology drive economy girls are we do also
00:02:30
no more that there are a number of a series of bottlenecks
00:02:34
uh even region cycle firstly we have still
00:02:38
very limited access to research literature worldwide
00:02:43
eighty eight percent research paper today perceive behind expensive
00:02:47
subscription pay well and even universes such as hard or as you can see in this article
00:02:52
from the garden say that it cannot afford anymore don't uh probably should it's it's
00:02:59
the second bottleneck is that we have created the
00:03:01
rejection cascade mechanism which massively slowdown research
00:03:07
researcher tend to some either paper try to summon the paper to prestige don't such as natures
00:03:14
and what you have is then ninety seven percent of this article
00:03:18
that are actually rejected because somebody consider not a revolution enough
00:03:24
uh we think that this is a huge waste of time that somehow should be stopped
00:03:30
better than last bottleneck is that we need to use the uh smart upgrade them to think buys research
00:03:36
mainly because we cannot really cool anymore with the amount of data and increase number of articles get get
00:03:42
publish every year crossbow and many company obviously have already relies that so they're invested huge really
00:03:48
uh in artificial intelligence and in that the technology and frontiers is also using current
00:03:54
it official intelligence for for example finding rather review work for that day but
00:03:59
there are some added to our journal but also for suggesting resorts are reading
00:04:04
this so that not actually meets an important article within their given field
00:04:10
so why would why i'm dropping an open access to research so important
00:04:15
well because there's a technology have been driven a good that
00:04:17
will continue to drive modest visitation references we're trying to
00:04:23
uh play a role in that by having it for five years plan
00:04:27
well we're a mutt publishing one hundred thousand article yeah it's in order
00:04:32
to realise that they leading example for adoption transformation to open access
00:04:36
uh well we have also created in opens a science plan for sustainability
00:04:41
because we believe assigned issued a much more central role in driving us to what the system feature
00:04:47
if i don't want to see more more people than gauges signs including jeter
00:04:52
so this is a quote from one of our work cheaper editor for one of our journal and this can really to you
00:04:59
uh it says the more people will have access to reliable knowledge and can access it easily the more
00:05:04
quickly can understand how to do business with pieces of living on hers to sustain to sustainable boss
00:05:11
um this is building or whatever your page uh we do as as
00:05:15
you can see a lot of different availability across different department
00:05:19
apparently are therefore if you are interested in more please contact me after the presentation
