Paper IO is a new paper design studio that aims to change how the paper publishing industry works.
They aim to “make paper more sustainable, open, and inclusive, and more accessible for the global and digital communities”.
Their website lists their goal of having 30% of their publications in open access journals and 50% of them being in print.
The website also shows their research papers in the public domain, which is a great way to promote them and encourage people to read them.
Paper IO’s goal is to provide the infrastructure for people to “reproduce and contribute to the world’s open scientific journals”.
This is one of the main goals of their mission statement, and one of my favourite things about their mission is that it is incredibly clear: their goal is the same: open access science.
Their website mentions their mission as “to change the paper publication process in the United States and to make the process sustainable, transparent, and open to all”, which is pretty cool.
PaperIO’s first big project, PaperIO Science, was announced in June 2017.
They had some good results in 2017, but the team quickly lost steam after it became apparent that the business model for paper publishing was not sustainable.
As of March 2018, Paperio Science was still operational and running, but not publishing any papers.
Paperio has since launched their second paper-design studio, Paper Science, which aims to make papers as open as possible and to encourage collaboration.
PaperScience has also been active in other important areas, like providing a platform for researchers to share their work.
In addition to the open access publishing of papers, PaperScience also offers a subscription-based model for researchers and publishers to pay.
Paper Science also aims to support open access and the research community in their efforts to “promote scientific literacy and inform people about the scientific community”.
Their first major initiative was to create an open source paper database called PaperSci.
This project aims to be a “global platform for collaboration, access, and discovery of papers” by creating a public-domain database that includes all papers published in the paper space since 2015.
The goal is that “the database will be a platform that supports scientific literacy for all, and help improve access to scientific information and research for all”.
PaperScience is not a startup, but Paper Science’s mission is clear: open scientific publishing.
In their mission to “build a sustainable, inclusive, open scientific publication model, Paper IO has created a platform and model that is open to anyone, with any experience in publishing open access, that can contribute to a global open source publishing platform that will help to build a better open access scientific publishing model”.
The first major paper in PaperIO Sci was published in March 2018.
I wrote about this paper here.
It was a great success, and Paper IO was able to continue to support the open source publication of papers.
However, they also had a bit of a setback.
The team found that they were getting a bit too much traffic on their platform, and that was a real problem.
They started to get questions about the structure of the paper, the structure and content of their content, and the content of the articles that they published.
Paperios main mission is to help people to produce, publish, and share open source scientific content, but in the last few months, Paper io also started to receive criticism from certain members of the community.
The response to the criticism was harsh, as a lot of people had some really bad experiences with the Paperio platform, including the complaints about their subscription models, and about how the open-access publishing model was not scalable.
These criticisms were especially harsh when you look at the data that PaperIO collected.
According to Paperio’s website, they collected over 400,000,000 data points on the people who subscribed to their platform.
This is the data we would normally expect from a scientific publication, and is one metric of how open scientific content can be produced.
According the Paper io website, Paperios research paper was published on average 10.6 times every day.
This number is extremely low compared to other scientific publishing platforms, and it is a real concern.
In response to these criticisms, PaperIos staff took a hard stance and decided to shut down the PaperIO platform in July 2018.
However in December 2018, the team announced that they would resume publishing papers.
In a blog post that the Paper IO team published, they explained the reasons behind their decision to resume publishing.
The reasons behind shutting down PaperIO were pretty straightforward.
“We have a lot to do in 2018, but this is not the time for us to shut off our business model,” they wrote.
As part of the PaperIo team, they are also creating a new open-source paper-hosting platform called Paper Science.
The new Paper Science platform will allow PaperIO authors to share the papers that they publish with their readers.
They are also planning to
