London, UK -- February 14, 2022. Cassyni, the virtual and hybrid academic seminar platform, has partnered with the publisher Elsevier to launch seminar series across their portfolio of physics journals. Seminars will be associated with recent journal papers, selected by editors as being particularly innovative and impactful. Launch journals include Journal of Computational Physics and Computer Physics Communications.
Live seminars will be open to researchers from all around the world, with an opportunity to participate in Q&A after each event. Recordings, augmented with AI powered video search, will then be hosted on Cassyni and assigned a DOI, making them a citable part of the academic ecosystem.
Thomas Thayer, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, said:
"We are always looking to innovate in how we engage our journal communities. Virtual seminar series, run using Cassyni, offer an exciting opportunity to connect with our authors and readers in a meaningful yet scalable way."
Ben Kaube, co-founder at Cassyni said:
"Journal seminar series on Cassyni help authors maximise impact by promoting their latest results to a global audience in an engaging format. They also benefit readers as well, providing an accessible entry point to new topic areas. Seminars were traditionally confined to university departments, but we're now seeing journals embrace seminars as a way to engage their author and reader communities."
Cassyni was launched in 2021 by the former founders of Mendeley, Publons and Kopernio. Our vision is to create a vibrant and connected ecosystem that enables millions of online and hybrid research seminars; helping academics, institutions and journals grow their reach and maximise their impact in a green and inclusive way. To achieve this we have developed a next-generation workflow platform for seminar organisers, and are building the world's largest freely accessible and fully searchable research seminar library.
