How are researchers using ARTiFACTS?

  • To secure their pre-publication artifacts to the blockchain, protect their IP, grow their reputation and collaboration networks
  • To draw upon the ARTiFACTS index of citations to pre-published and published research
  • To interoperate with their commonly used research tools, software and information systems

Enterprise and community beneficiaries

Publishers identify emerging talent, disciplines and enrich value of their content

Funding organisations track outputs and impact

Universities and research organisations monitor, benchmark and report performance

Corporate R&D gains signal intelligence and access to experts

ARTiFACTS

At its heart, ARTiFACTS maintains a distributed ledger and transaction engine that records a permanent, valid, and immutable chain of records for all scientific and academic research ‘transactions’ including citing (also known as attribution) transactions recorded onto the blockchain.

The ability to capture citing transactions is a unique and powerful requirement of scientific and academic research. This citation ability differentiates ARTiFACTS from general media blockchains.

ARTiFACTS’ proprietary (patent pending) ability to authoritatively and rigorously manage citations, artifact linkages, and ownership pre- or post-publication is unprecedented relative to current indexing, archiving, and researcher community solutions.
