Today, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) launched its own open access publishing hub with F1000, Taylor & Francis Group’s open research publishing arm.
This new Gateway will be hosted on F1000’s own open research publishing platform, F1000Research, thereby increasing the reproducibility and accessibility of their published research. All research published on the Manipal Academy of Higher Education Gateway will use the innovative F1000Research publishing model that combines the benefits of rapid publication with mechanisms to assure quality and transparency. In doing so, research impact is accelerated and the research is free for anyone to read.
Manipal Academy of Higher Education is a globally engaged institution with active partnerships with more than 220 leading universities around the globe. MAHE is synonymous with excellence in higher education and therefore conferred the status of Institute of Eminence (IOE) by Govt. of India. Research has always been an area of paramount importance at MAHE. The experts at MAHE are taking meticulous and meaningful steps to build reservoirs of intellectual wealth and academic excellence. In the process, MAHE has created some of the country’s best institutes and schools across several diverse streams like medicine, dentistry, nursing, engineering, pharmacy, hotel management, allied health, architecture and design, communication etc.
This Gateway provides a publishing venue for all researchers at MAHE to publish all their research outputs openly and transparently in one place, including non-peer reviewed outputs, such as conference posters and slide decks. MAHE welcomes submissions across various fields, including Health Science, Science Technology & Management, Humanities, Liberal Arts & Social Sciences.
