About EUREKA

EUREKA is a scientific review and rating platform fuelled by the EUREKA token from EUREKA Blockchain Solutions GmbH. Blockchain has the capacity to open science and make research findings immutable, transparent and decentralised. EUREKA revolutionises the scientific publishing and reviewing process by making it more efficient and fair using the EUREKA token to compensate all parties involved. Scientific discoveries can now be openly rated and rewarded based on the quality of the research. cienceMatters is a scientific online publishing platform. The team behind ScienceMatters is also behind the EUREKA platform. After launching in 2016, ScienceMatters has operated multiple journals and covers all aspects of science publishing. In the same year the company was endorsed by the European Commission. It has 24 scientific advisory board members chaired by the Nobel laureate Prof. Tom Südhof and around 600 editorial board members from some of the best institutes around the world, such as Harvard University, Stanford University, ETH and the Max-Planck Institute.

Features

Scientific observations are timestamped, hashed and recorded on the Ethereum blockchain. This gives the author or inventor immediate ownership rights, and ensures scientists’ and researchers’ discoveries are tamper-proof. Scientific observations undergo crowdsourced, peer-to-peer reviews which are transmitted and recorded on the EUREKA platform. The EUREKA platform will make use of crowdsourced wisdom and reviewers to get fast, accurate evaluations of the work, instead of being restricted to one or two reviewers, as is common practice.  The EUREKA platform’s crowdsourced scoring of scientific work will provide researchers as well as publishers with a new metric that can be used to evaluate submissions more swiftly. Preprints or observations with ratings and reviews will be archived through the EUREKA decentralised and distributed system. In cases where the author wants to publish in a traditional journal, the scores can be transferred to the journals. The test scores are also available to funders, universities and prize or awards committees.  The EUREKA platform’s crowdsourced scoring of scientific work will provide researchers as well as publishers with a new metric that can be used to evaluate submissions more swiftly.

Sources of funding could make decisions based on ratings and reviews on the EUREKA platform.

EUREKA Interviews

DR. LAWRENCE RAJENDRAN
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As a founder and the CEO of Eureka, I am excited about bringing blockchain technology for science publishing. I lead an excellent team that ranges from technology, science to business administration and we all bring the best to make science more efficient.
What do you think about idea?
EUREKA will provide a unique blockchain-powered science publishing system for scientists.

Using the EUREKA platform scientists can rate research, review manuscripts, and receive rewards for their contribution to the research process. EUREKA tokens (EKA) will be used to reward both peer reviewers, as well as editors. EKA can be used to encourage reproducibility studies by rewarding scientists who find negative and positive results (or replication data). EKA is an Ethereum-based token which will be integral to the enhancement of the existing ScienceMatters publishing platform.
DR. THOMAS BOCEK
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I'm the CTO of EUREKA and ScienceMatters, organizing the technical efforts on the EUREKA platform and for the upcoming ICO.

PROF. DR. WALTER DETTLING
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I have been a professor for Business Maths, Information Systems, E-Business and now Blockchain for over 30 years. I am also working in a software company which is very successful in developing a standard business software in Switzerland for local and global Swiss companies. I am supporting EUREKA with advice as an academic writer, teacher and advisor in the business world.
What do you think about idea?
The Scientific publication business needs a change. I have a long experience in publishing myself long before the internet was available. Unfortunately, the internet didn’t improve the scientific research and publishing for good, because in this field, centralisation is the enemy of quality and development. I strongly believe that we must decentralize scientific publishing. The EUREKA team proofed already with ScienceMatters that they know how to do that. Now with EUREKA ICO, they are taking their blueprint of scientific publishing to next level. As I know most of the EUREKA team personally, I also know they are the right people for this job.
MR. LAMBERT HELLER
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As an academic librarian, I consulted members of the team on specific challenges of the research information infrastructure.
What do you think about idea?
I enthusiastically encourage trying new ways of governing and funding research projects in radically decentralized ways. I'm convinced that Eureka has a unique und well informed approach to this.
PROF. LISANDRO ZAMBENEDETTI GRANVILLE
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As a member of the Advisory Board, I advise mainly about potential integrations of Eureka tokens with other systems of the publishing pipeline.
What do you think about idea?
An excellent disruptive concept, in which varies activities in the scientific production process are recognized and properly documented.
DR. ANNA ERAT
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am delighted to serve as an advisor for this venture. Coming from a science and consulting back-ground, and currently working directly with patients, I hope to bring this expertise into the project.
What do you think about idea?
Big data has changed the scientific landscape, and calls for new forms of capturing data and research. Time stamping of scientific data, block-chain based rating and a proper reward system are all crucial in these processes.
