- Flashpub operates community specific scientific journals for rapidly emerging research stories. Built around a much smaller, faster research article, our journals empower scientists to advance their career and lead global research programs without waiting years to publish.
We reimagined the basic unit of scientific progress - the research article - for collaborative, networked, decentralized science in a web3 ecosystem.
A smarter, faster research articleWe are the first academic journal to rapidly publish and review discrete units of scientific discovery. Rather than spending years independently collecting data and often unknowingly redoing the work of others, we make it easy for researchers to actively lead their communities down exciting lines of collaborative inquiry.
CampaignsOur journals allow scientists to advance their career with collaborative streams of research articles called campaigns. Campaigns use simple, elegant data visualizations as a focal point for emerging results on specific topics or challenges. Led by a principal investigator and steering committee, our workflow balances the explosive potential of expert crowdsourcing with quality control and rigorous scientific oversight. Campaigns flip the prevailing incentive structure in science by focusing on rapid, open, iterative progress across a community, instead of slow, private progress within individual labs. Our model rewards collaboration, leadership, community validation, scientific rigor, and ultimately more trustworthy results.
