ORVIUM: A Platform for managing publications

wheading.PNG

The technology that brought us the first transparent, secure, and decentralized currency through Bitcoin has opened the floodgates for incredibly innovative business solutions through smart contracts on networks such as the Ethereum Network. Through this, a large number of businesses have minted a growing group of people with significant wealth tied to cryptocurrencies.
However, as it stands, the process to translate the wealth accumulated in cryptocurrencies to real-life experiences for cryptocurrency owners to enjoy is unfortunately painfully inconvenient. The activities of purchasing, transferring and exchanging cryptocurrencies to widely accepted “money” are complicated, slow, and unstable.
The real-world usability problems associated with cryptocurrencies have encouraged a number of companies to tackle this challenge. While many of the contenders in this space have approached it with a seemingly logical prepaid plastic card solution, their use cases are limited to just a few cryptocurrencies and acceptances are limited to just a small number of Merchants thus hampering wider adoption.
Science has a major impact on society; it is the force behind some of the most revolutionary changes in human history. Science drastically changes the way we live, communicate and work, it even changes the length and quality of life itself. By making life easier, science has helped man to study and critique ethics, aesthetics, education, and justice; to create cultures, and to improve human conditions. Due to governments funding most of the research, volunteer scientist usually paid by the government or research institutes and publishers who sell the product back to governmental
institutions and universities. Scientists and research institutions regularly criticize this which compromises the dissemination and growth of scientific knowledge because of this the publication model has several problems affecting the research community, Before i proceed on this work, lets take a look at this video to have an insight on what i want to discuss….

ORVIUM
Orvium is the first open source and decentralized framework for managing scholarly publications’ life cycles and the associated data. Orvium introduces a disruptive business model into the research publication market through a unique combination of four core technologies: Blockchain and smart contracts, Decentralized storage, Cloud computing, Big data analytics and machine learning.

MISSION
To be the leading publication platform for the research community while returning the benefits of science to the society.

PROBLEMS
High publication costs
Copyrights held by publishers rather than authors
Long, opaque and oftentimes biased publication and peer review process
Lack of rewards and recognition for reviewers
Proliferation of low quality journals.

SOLUTION
Orvium leverages a unique and seamless integration of cutting-edge technologies: Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts, decentralized storage solutions, big data analytics, and cloud computing, to create a platform to process, validate, and disseminate research data and results. The Orvium platform is characterized by the following:
• Instantaneous proof-of-existence. Manuscripts are available from the moment they are submitted to Orvium.
• Copyright and licenses are owned and transferable by authors. Authors retain control of their work and its potential economic benefits.
• Optimal publication and access costs. The prices are not influenced by monopolistic or oligopolistic market structures.
• Efficient framework to create decentralized journals with low maintenance and operational costs.
• Seamless integration between research data and results.
• Continuous and transparent peer reviews. The research community is empowered to publicly determine the validity and soundness of the research.
• Public recognition and economic reward for peer reviewers.
• Journal subscription freedom. No journal subscription model is enforced.
• Accommodates gray literature and its validation.
• Transparent calculation of quality metrics such as impact factor and peer review quality.
• Eliminates current “predatory” practices and conflicts regarding plagiarism, idea ownership and registration.
• Social platform.

ORVIUM MODEL
Help to enhance science to human heritage
Offer a business model that returns benefits to science
Make science more transparent, universal and open access than ever before
Truly recognize researchers’ work and its impact
Maximize scientific validation and collaboration
Incorporate society in the scientific process and its evolution

ORVIUM PLATFORM
Blockchain
All transactions (e.g., submissions of manuscripts, revisions, publications, peer reviews, oracle actions, patronage results etc.) are stored on the blockchain and are accessible to anyone.

Decentralized Storage
Unlocks a public, globally accessible, fully traceable and trustworthy record of the publication process at a minimal cost

Big Data & Artificial Intelligence
Leverages forefront Big Data technologies and artificial intelligence developments to take scientific validity to a completely new level. Replacing the current obsolete rules with unbiased and transparent data-driven solutions

Open Source Framework
Orvium’s source code will be published under an open source license and driven by the community.

TOKEN MECHANICS SUMMARY
Researchers
Acting as an author:
Send ORV for getting peer reviews.
Send ORV in exchange of market data.
Send ORV to acquire research data rights.
Receive ORV from journals/readers (Orvium gets a percentage fee from these transactions).
Receive ORV when solving challenges (patronage campaigns).
Receive ORV for research data access (if not free).

Acting as a reviewer:
Receive ORV when doing peer reviews.

Journal owner

ORVIUM TOKEN
Orvium establishes a transparent, comprehensive and competitive business model to obtain and increase revenue while supporting global research. Orvium’s business model is built on the Orvium token (ORV), a new digital cryptocurrency created specifically for the platform. The different phases of a manuscripts’ and journals’ life cycles such as manuscript submission, peer review, payments for copyright licenses, research data sharing, journal management, etc. will generate exchanges of ORV between institutions, authors, peer reviewers, journal owners, readers and any social actor involved. This decentralization will unlock the full potential of a new, fair, transparent and competitive market controlled by the entire community, free of biased oligopolies and hidden interests.
