Last month the Center for Open Science (COS) announced two major developments of interest to our communities. The OSF Preprints platform, powered by SHARE, added six new preprint services to accelerate dissemination of research: INA-Rxiv, the preprint server of Indonesia; LISSA, an open scholarly platform for library and information science; MindRxiv, a service for research on mind and contemplative practices; NutriXiv, a preprint service for the nutritional sciences; paleorXiv, a digital archive for paleontology; and SportRxiv, an open archive for sport and exercise-related research.
COS also announced the launch of Thesis Commons, a free, cloud-based, open-source platform for the submission, dissemination, and discovery of graduate and undergraduate theses and dissertations from any discipline. Authors can share their electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) with a quick and easy submission workflow. Readers can search, discover, and download with a clean and simple interface. Institutions can sign up for a branded version of the service for hosting ETDs, preprints, or other scholarship. This service is also powered by SHARE.
