A Decentralised Research Article Publishing and Archiving System
Keywords:Research article, Peer to peer, Decentralized publishing, Open platform for research article sharing (OPRAS),, Research document format (RDF)
Background/Purpose: Research papers provide the path for the expansion of knowledge, allowing for the emergence of new information and the avoidance of duplication of previous research effort. Researchers use their paper to convey their findings to the rest of the world. However, owing to problems such as processing fees from journals, an inefficient review procedure, a lengthy processing time, and the closure of journals, the research community has encountered a major hurdle. In order to overcome this issue, we propose in this study a system known as the Open Platform for Research Article Sharing (OPRAS), which would allow the author to publish his or her paper utilizing a peer-to-peer (P2P) architecture.
Objective: To get an understanding of the research article publication process and the issues it faces, in order to propose OPRAS, a new system that will employ a peer-to-peer architecture to share research articles.
Design/Methodology/Approach: Data from websites, research papers, and other sources are collected, analysed and presented using ABCD analysis.
Findings/Results: With the help of research articles that are published in journals, researchers can tell the world about their work. But authors can't publish their findings because of different problems, which makes it hard for society to learn new things. In this paper, a method for a new system called Open Platform for Research Article Sharing (OPRAS) utilizing the P2P architecture was put forward after looking at the different steps and problems that come up when publishing an article.
Originality/Value: A new system has been presented based on the relevance of research articles and an understanding of the problems in publishing research papers, which will attract the attention of the research community and lead to additional improvements in the proposed technique.
Paper Type: Research Paper.
