Sci-Hub Has Papers. Are You Keeping Your Users? image

The recent pre-print about scholarly materials available via Sci-Hub (https://peerj.com/preprints/3100/) reveals that most scholarly and scientific publishers have suffered what may be irreparable damage to their stores of intellectual capital.

If publishers can do that well, they could make Sci-Hub a toothless threat. Remarq™ is built to increase engagement on the publisher’s Version of Record. It does this by encouraging collaboration, fostering engagement with a trusted brand and its emissaries (editors, authors, publishing personnel), supporting legal article-sharing, and making it easy to connect with colleagues.

Remarq — Decentralized Scholarly Collaboration image

Remarq goes beyond annotations to create an entire system of engagement around journal articles, with levels of engagement that users can use as they see fit: Private engagement with content – highlighting and private annotations Semi-private engagement – article-sharing, following articles, polls, profiles Public engagement – qualified comments, post-publication reviews, and author and editor updates This approach, which is essentially “decentralized social,” provides a combination of features that David Worlock described succinctly in a recent blog post: “Remarq . . . enable[s] any publisher to create community around annotated discussion and turn it into scholarly exchange and collaboration.” Publishers and users are familiar with the downsides of centralized social media — algorithms that litter feeds with misinformation or distractions; social networks ...
