In an effort to increase the project’s visibility and improve the dissemination of all publicly available project outputs, Safeguard has recently launched an open research collection in the Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO) journal.
The RIO journal intends to stimulate a culture shift in research communications by publishing ideas, proposals, and other research cycle outcomes in a thorough and timely manner. The journal is dedicated to a peer-review procedure that is completely transparent and open to the public. RIO has thus become a tool for boosting transparency and trustworthiness in research ecosystems, thereby increasing the efficiency of the research process. The journal also aims to create and strengthen the links across scientific disciplines by placing special emphasis on how research addresses the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other challenges that our global society is facing.
The Safeguarding European wild pollinators collection in RIO aims to broaden the outreach of project results by publishing not only standard scientific articles, but also other pieces, covering the entire research cycle in a comprehensive manner. The collection will host a wide range of project outputs, including reports, protocols, methodologies, research papers and more, and it will also link publications in other journals. It thus allows the centralisation of project outputs and assures their availability throughout and beyond the project's lifetime.
As of now, the project links to 14 scientific articles funded or co-funded by the Safeguard project.
