Value Xd Science™

Academic Edition: An Analytical Ecosystem for Open Science

Value Xd’s second release will be the academic edition which is designed as a private analytical ecosystem dedicated to Open Science.

The academic edition is inspired by related and equally serious challenges. Indeed, the sheer volume of academic publications across all fields, continents and languages would make us think that we should have solved all our problems, and those of our neighbouring galaxies by now. The truth is elsewhere, and we believe much of our underperformance is caused by the inefficiencies of the currently available technology.

For centuries, till recently, the entire analytical output of humanity has been written down on paper, or printed on paper and similar mediums. With the advent of the computer and the internet, universities and institutes, libraries and think tanks, publishers and authors, have all moved their existing analytical wealth from print format to pdf format, as much as possible, and have started publishing their analytical output in print and pdf or just pdf formats. To confirm this fact, please visit the many social research science networks, as well as other websites that act as online academic communities.

While print and pdf are abundantly available, rarely do we see an Excel or SPSS file attached to an academic paper. In our current institutional culture and format, publishers and authors rely on their reputation for credibility, and readers will have to either accept or test the veracity and rigor of the analytical output themselves. The actual models and engines that generated the output are rarely shared, which raises unanswerable questions regarding veracity and authenticity.

Furthermore, readers of such analytical output, besides not having the actual engines and tests, and files, are only exposed to those output that get published by the publishers, through their editorial boards, and also peer review process. While peer and non-peer review is fundamental for science and our intellectual evolution, no output should be denied light.

Indeed, we believe that every human mind out there has the right to publish its analytical output freely to the world, and by the same token, must be ready for the review it receives from peers and non-peers.

Value Xd removes unwarranted filters standing between you and your genius, gives you the platform to publish it, and ensures that everyone can openly discuss and review it.

Value Xd ushers a new age in analytical publishing, an age of Open Science.
