Science Talks is an open access journal that publishes original, peer-reviewed videos of scientific presentations, tutorials, and news and views. We are pleased to announce that we are working with the organisers to develop a special issue with a collection of videos from this conference and we are waiving our normal publishing charges. We hope you are willing to participate so that we can extend the reach of your presentation to an even broader, global audience.
The journal is open to submissions from all areas of mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, medicine, biological sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Published videos are accompanied by a manuscript that includes an abstract, figures, tables, and references presented in the video.
There are many benefits to publishing in Science Talks:
Videos are content rich
Video content is more memorable and engaging. All submissions are peer-reviewed, and recordings undergo a quality check prior to publication to ensure our high standards are met.
Videos are easy to submit
Our easy-to-use template makes it easy for participants to submit a manuscript to accompany their video.
Videos are freely accessible
All Science Talks videos are immediately and freely available to download and use. Published videos receive a DOI so that they can be cited, and they are hosted on ScienceDirect—the world’s largest scientific content platform with 20 million+ active users. We also add closed captioning and a transcript of the video prior to publication.
Videos are free to publish
There are no publication charges for authors who are Elsevier conference presenters.
Videos complement full-text articles
The focus of this special issue is the video presentation, which means that it is complementary to related full-length research articles published in another journal, special issue, conference collection, or as an independent article.
Reuse of previously published content in SCTALK
We must republish figures under the terms specified by the rightsholder who grants us the permission. If the original figure was not published open access but was published in a subscription article, for example, whilst we can include the figure in OA content, we must credit the original source and include in the credit line that it was published with permission from the rightsholder. This ensures readers of SCTALK content are aware that reuse of the figure requires permission from the original rights holder.
Unless the original figure from the third party publication was published under a CC BY license Elsevier requires permission to republish it. The key is who holds the copyright to the original figure.
Reuse of SCTALK content in future publications
All content published in Science Talks is published under a CC BY license. Neither authors nor other third parties require permission to use this content. The CC BY license allows others to use the content for both non-commercial and commercial use with no permission required. The user must only credit Science Talks as the source appropriately.
