Abstract:

Out casting, sharing, and publishing the collected knowledge, experiences, and outputs of scientific works, regardless of being empirical or purely theoretical, has always been one of the key assets of human evolution. However, on one hand, re-usability of published work depends on accessibility, and, on the other hand, om the correctness of published work. Studies on the traditional scientific publishing platforms reveal many deficits with those systems, which had been addressed with the proposed blockchain-based solution called Eureka. Eureka enables high quality reviews of tthe published work, while incentivizing authors and reviewers to participate in this decentralized, open, and public scientific publishing platform.
