All scientific work will now be published freely and digitally in Octopus, making it easy to find


The concept of a ‘paper’ is dead. Publish your hypotheses, methods, results and analyses in Octopus as you produce them, in whatever language you are most comfortable in (it will be automatically translated for others)


Review and rate others’ work. Reviews count as original work and add to your metrics - along with how appreciated your reviews are by peers.
