Scipedia S.L. is a company specialized in Internet-related services and products for scientist and technologists. Scipedia S.L. hosts and operates the social network and science publisher Scipedia launched in May 2016.


Scipedia is a scientific and technical digital publisher and professional social network. Scipedia aims to connect researchers and technologists and facilitate them to share knowledge, expertise and the outcome of their work. For this purpose, Scipedia offers an innovative platform providing free publishing and open access services (e.g. no open access fees are payable by the authors and no fees are required to read the published articles) to disseminate the results of the scientific and technical work.

Scipedia offers free content so that the published papers and other public documents are available under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license. This means that Scipedia content can be distributed and linked in accordance with the provisions of this license. Scipedia must not incorporate materials that violate the rights of their authors or works with licensing scheme incompatible with the Scipedia scheme.

Scipedia intends to be a self-governing project run by its community. Its policies and guidelines are intended to reflect the consensus of the community.


Four different types of publications are available in Scipedia: Journals, Archives, Collections and Proceedings.

  • Journal is a peer-reviewed publication that will contain original research articles in the field of the journal (scientific journals) or papers aiming to exchange and discus on novel and creative ideas on theoretical and experimental researches (academic journals).
  • Archive is a peer-reviewed publication that will publish survey papers with a deliberately integrative and up-to-date perspective on a major topic in the field of the journal.
  • Collection can be an institutional or thematic repository of any type of technical and scientific document (such as thesis dissertations, state-of-the-art review papers, historical papers or research reports). Collections give the opportunity to researchers and technologists to freely publish and facilitate open access to their research activities results. There is also a good chance for scholars and research communities to highly increase their visibility in the world and their impact. Both institutional and thematic repositories can be created in Scipedia as a Collection. The documents published as Collections may not follow the standards defined in Scipedia for papers published in the other journal types.
  • Proceedings will contain a collection of academic or scientific papers or extended abstracts, published in the context of a conference or series of conferences.

Peer review and discussion[edit]

An integral part of Scipedia’s mission is to publish journals of the highest quality with the greatest impact. Application of the peer-review process is a way to ensure the overall quality and integrity of the research presented in a publication. Scipedia’s publications (except those of type ‘Collection’ and ‘Proceedings’) will follow a collaborative peer-review process. Scipedia’s peer review process aims to maintain the publishing standards, improve the quality of the document, and finally to determine the suitability for publication in the selected journal.

Once the peer-review process is finished and the paper is published, a discussion page will remain open as a discussion forum about the paper contents and related issues. The authors of a published paper may optionally add additional supplementary material (such as videos, datasets, computational models, etc.) or decide to make minor changes in order to improve it. In case the authors want to make major changes in a published document, it is preferable to create a new one.
