Sciety Adds Two GigaScience Press Journals
Sciety announced that it has added the GigaScience and GigaByte journals to its platform, explaining that as “part of GigaScience Press … they aim to revolutionise publishing by promoting reproducibility of analyses and data dissemination, organisation, understanding, and use. As open-access and open-data journals, they publish all research objects (publishing data, software and workflows) from ‘big data’ studies across the life and biomedical sciences.”
Sciety continues, “Joining Sciety furthers the journals’ aims and increases their and our opportunities to share their evaluations with a broader audience. For Sciety, GigaScience and GigaByte increase value for users, with the potential to provide multiple reviews, and therefore more enriching activities, on preprints. This can help amplify trust in scientific outputs by offering clear reference points to judge the quality of a preprint.”
