Students using the digital platforms also have the option of free print rentals, paying only a $7.99 shipping fee.

ARTiFACTS and Blockchain in Healthcare Today partner to advance the use of blockchain in scholarly publishing
- 19 Apr 2018

ARTiFACTS, creator of the world's first blockchain-based platform for scholarly research, and Blockchain in Healthcare Today, an open access, peer review journal focused on the use of blockchain in the health sector, have formed a partnership to advance the use of blockchain in scholarly publishing. Under this partnership, ARTiFACTS and Blockchain in Healthcare Today will work together to integrate blockchain technology into the scholarly publishing workflow and collaborate on research to assess the effectiveness of the technology as a tool to improve speed, collaboration, access, transparency, and attribution in scholarly research.

Blockchain in Healthcare Today will make its content available on the ARTiFACTS platform and will also provide access for its author/researcher community to start using the platform to establish proof of existence for research outputs, share research artifacts, and provide and receive immutable attribution in real-time during their research. Authors will benefit from the ability to easily and securely share in-process work to speed collaboration and enhance their reputation as research is conducted.

The two entities have agreed to form a working group that will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a blockchain-based approach to scholarly knowledge and attribution dissemination. The findings from this research will be reviewed and published by Blockchain in Healthcare Today. Initial observations and insights will be presented at the October 2018 ConVerg2Xcelerate conference hosted by Blockchain in Healthcare Today.
