Scipedia is a initiative promoted by CIMNE for fostering the publication and dissemination of documents in Open Access format and which has several innovative features.
The unique feature of Scipedia is that it creates and manages journals and collections of publications of individuals and groups (eg. a single author, a group of academics, a university department or a research centre, etc). The documents are generated from the “original” text of the publication in Word or Latex and can be modified with the online editor of Scipedia to embed in the document videos, data files, models, etc. The collections may include articles, monographs, books, magazines, technical reports, conference proceedings, etc. From the documents published, one can automatically generate copies in PDF or EPUB format for e-books.
All documents published in Scipedia are indexed by the main search engines of scientific and technical documents, such as Google Scholar, Open Aire, etc.
The published documents have a discussion forum where they can be commented by registered users. These comments contribute to the “popularity” of the document and increase the “prestige” of the author and of those who participate in the discussion.
All content is also traceable by Google robots (and others) so that each part of it is traceable and referenciable.
