Open Access: ScienceOpen Database Hits 10 Million Article Records Milestone

ScienceOpen (SO) aggregates open access articles from a number of sources and also provides a publishing platform.

From SO:

ScienceOpen, the research + open access publishing network, has added article records from more than 10 million scientific publications. Researchers can now filter published content by the number of citations and monitor the relevance and impact of recent scientific results by tracking social media mentions.


To enhance discoverability, each research article page provides recommendations for related articles regardless of publisher.


To support search and discovery, ScienceOpen has begun building the first openly and freely available citation index. This was achieved by tracking the references of the nearly 2 million Open Access articles on the site. The new release of the ScienceOpen platform displays the relative citation count, all the citing articles, and their own citations. Researchers can now filter all content based on a wide range of options including citations, journal, publisher, date and other bibliometric data. Moreover, scientists can track in real time the social media coverage of articles in Twitter, Google+, Mendeley and other social networks.
