Emerald Publishing becomes first publisher to adopt F1000’s Open Research Publishing model, focusing on social sciences.
Designed in partnership with F1000, authors are invited to submit their research to Emerald Open Research, which offers greater pathways to impact by immediately contributing to societal challenges and being accessible to all. IKnowFood is one of the first to publish an article ‘Food Systems Resilience: Towards an Interdisciplinary Research Agenda [version 1; referees: awaiting peer review] on Emerald Publishings new open access gateway Sustainable Food Systems.
In a further move away from traditional publishing, all research published on Emerald Open Research will be subject to open peer review, where all reports are published alongside the article together with the authors’ responses. This approach not only offers rapid publication, but the transparent peer review process encourages experts to provide constructive feedback to help authors improve their work.
