BackgroundCiennce.com is a research communication platform that was founded in 2015 by the current CEO Axel Landberg. Axel Landberg has been working within the media industry for several years managing many projects with a strong academic approach. In his work he meet many researchers that wanted to communicate their research but didn’t have the needed resources. Many of the researchers were passionate about their work and many times offered to write articles within their area of expertise. The will to write and communicate formed a democratic idea that all researchers should be able to publish articles, free of charge on an open platform and that this could enhance the spreading of knowledge in the society.
VisionThere are more than 7 million researchers in the world that every year are publishing thousands of scientific articles covering a huge number of subjects. Together with the academic community we want to create an international platform where our main newsfeed consists of English articles written by researchers from different countries. The goal for this platform is also to become an established site where readers go to get the researchers point of view on current subjects. We want Researchers that are covering the Middle East to publish explaining articles on the current war in Syria and that technical researchers explain how self-driven cars will impact the transportation system and everything inbetween. We strongly believe that our platform will ad something to the media landscape and contribute to the sharing of knowledge.
