Kinokuniya becomes sales agent of open research publishing platform F1000Research -

Kinokuniya Company Ltd. has signed an agreement with Taylor & Francis Group, by which Kinokuniya becomes the exclusive sales agent of the world’s first open research publishing platform ‘F1000Research’ operated by F1000 Research Ltd, part of Taylor & Francis Group, for academic institutional customers in Japan.

A trailblazer in rethinking research communication, F1000 Research Ltd has launched the first open research publishing platform ‘F1000Research’ in 2013. The platform combines the ability to publish rapidly with functionality to ensure transparency, robustness and reproducibility of research. Articles are indexed in international bibliographic databases. Moreover, it allows researchers in HSS to publish articles not only in English but also in Japanese, to overcome language barriers in academic research. The partnership seeks to resolve various problems in the current scholarly communication system, enhance open research, and contribute to further development of academic research conducted in Japan. Kinokuniya will work hard to promote F1000Research by utilising its sales channels for institutional clients while improving marketing functions, customer service, and distribution through the cooperation between both companies.
