The society aims to enhance the reproducibility of published scientific articles. Currently, only 10-30% published articles can be well reproduced. Many scientists and researchers are confused when experiments reported in literatures cannot be reproduced. It is difficult to know why it cannot be reproduced in their labs. Especially, when an experiment reported cannot be reproduced, it will waste lots of effort, time and funding of researchers around the world. Therefore, the society is founded to promote the advancement of science by publishing open peer reviewed, open access, open comment and open discussion research papers across all scientific fields. the key feature of journals published by this society is that at least one video clip is required to be uploaded and showed to public as solid proofs when publishing an experimental research articles. The uploaded video clips will save time and efforts of scientists who try to reproduce reported results. Moreover, public can get a visual understanding of science in a specific field from the uploaded video clips. Writing and reviewing journal articles is part of the core business of a scientist. But it’s not an efficient way to communicate research results. Therefore, the society is committed to providing an efficient platform. Another feature is that articles published by the society are open comment and discussion, which unite scientists together to a specific topic, make science issues be solved easier.
