Cotinus is a non-profit association of academic and industry researchers striving for an improved publishing experience for computer science researchers worldwide
The literary world is a thriving space, and whilst there is no stipulated number, it is believed that close to two million research papers are published in scientific journals every year. While authors around the world are doing their best to engage in noteworthy studies, bridge knowledge gaps and much more, the high price of Open Access journal publishing makes several authors unable to share their research freely. Seeing the plight of publishers, especially computer science publishers, Cotinus.org was launched to offer free open access publishing within their range of computer science journals.
With Cotinus, computer scientists now have a journal to publish their research works, articles, and manuscripts without the burden of huge Open Access fees. Cotinus is a non-profit voluntary association of academic and industry researchers striving for a better publishing experience for authors. As a journal publisher, Cotinus boasts of a progressive peer-review process that has proven pivotal to research innovation in computer science.
Their free to publish open access journals assures computer science researchers are able to publish their academic papers in a peer-reviewed Open Access journal, for free. A source from the Cotinus was quoted thus, “We have several open access (OA) peer reviewed computer science journals. Our initiative allows non-funded researchers to publish OA completely free of charge, whilst grant-funded researchers simply donate any amount they are comfortable with, which helps contribute towards the upkeep of our services i.e. servers, DOI management etc.”
Cotinus is on course to disrupt the current outdated publishing experience. Their journals are currently accepting expressions of interest for manuscripts, but submission dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Furthermore, journals are also open to expressions of interest for peer-reviewers and journal editors. Those who wish to express interest must be qualified computer scientists, researchers or academics, and share the same core values as the association: dedication, modern thinking, and respect for authors’ time.
Some of the journal topics covered by Cotinus include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cyber Security & Data Protection, Human-Computer Interaction, and Immersive Technologies. Cotinus plans to expand to accommodate more fields of computer science while allowing computer science researchers the ability to publish their research papers for free.
