Scientific Reports is “an online, open access, peer-reviewed publication from the publisher of Nature. We publish research from all areas of science and are committed to speeding up the peer review and publication process and providing an efficient service to both authors and readers. We publish daily on the nature.com platform, so we get your research to the widest possible audience.“
They’ve released a fantastic promotional piece called Eye Sci: “An exciting, intriguing and at times frustrating online game, but one that will keep you coming back for more! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to discover the 50 scientists’ names hidden within this image. Some clues are their names, meanwhile with others you will need knowledge of their discoveries, inventions or laws to arrive at the correct answer.“
So far, I’ve managed to get just over half (and been labelled a Genius because of it!), but there are many that are eluding me. It’s well worth trying out, and you can even get entered into a prize draw if you get over 25 correct!
What are you waiting for? Give it a go! Onwards!
