This is the publishing platform of the Student Network for Open Science (NOS) - the first Open Science journal for life and health sciences by students in the German-speaking area.
We provide students with the opportunity to publish their research in a low-threshold and high-quality environment. Our student and early-career editors closely guide student authors through the entire publication process, providing valuable feedback and support on the way to their first publication. Especially as a research newcomer, it has never been easier to transform Bachelor, Master, Doctoral Theses, or academic papers written during one’s study into a publication with a DOI while gaining valuable experiences for one’s further career.
As an open-access journal, we offer a free platform for student research, opinion, and initiative. Our goal is to live and communicate science openly, interprofessionally, and transdisciplinary.
At NOS, students also become critical actors in the scientific publication process, primarily through engaging in a modern post-publication peer review after being trained as student peer reviewers. An interactive and expert-guided crash course prepares students for their first reviews. At the same time, continuous journal clubs and active work as reviewers give them the experience needed to expand their skills and become future experts in their respective fields.
