Orvium, the worlds first blockchain-based scientific publication platform, announced its official 2018 roadmap. The platform allows researchers to submit their papers and have them peer-reviewed by a wide community of scientists, offers complete traceability of all activity - including submission, revisions, peer reviews and copyright changes - and provides access to decentralized journals, a cost-efficient and autonomous way to have their papers categorized and promoted.

The current research market faces a series of important problems, from delayed publication to limited authors choice over copyright and licensing. Orvium aims to provide a more efficient, decentralized alternative by incorporating blockchain technology, smart contracts, decentralized storage solutions, big data analytics and artificial intelligence and creating the first blockchain-based scientific publication and review platform.
Orvium allows researchers to instantly submit their research papers, choose a licensing model of their choice, share their complete study data for improved scientific validation, and have their work reviewed by a community of active scientists.
The transactions will be facilitated by the ORV token, the official cryptocurrency of the platform. Researchers can use their ORV tokens to encourage peer reviews, reviewers can earn tokens and public recognition by reviewing research papers, and contributors can define transparent smart contracts by exchanging ORV tokens for specific Journal tokens.
The decentralized platforms provides ethical and collaborative journal management, contributors using different voting and participation schemas to establish management rules and take collective decisions.
The token sale and limited platform launch are scheduled for the second and third quarters of 2018, with the public launch scheduled for late 2018 - early 2019.
A spokesperson for the company said: Orvium unlocks the full potential of a decentralized, fair, transparent and competitive market free of biases, oligopolies and private interests. Our platform opens the definition of journals, the creation of challenges to increase scientific validation and the promotion of patronage campaigns to the general public.
