Building a new home for science​

Open access research platform governed by and for science

Publishing, peer review, reproducibility, open access and funding

are all core processes in science that are in trouble today. Handling each in particular is inefficient, as they’re all interconnected. To function properly and deliver more results, the whole system of science needs to be improved.

The solution we built is DEIP – a research platform with digital economy for science​

that provides three essential things:

Open access
publishing

Immediate: a paper is published once submitted to the platform, and then reviewed.
Free: all results are free to publish and access for everyone.
Open to all: authors retain copyright, and anyone can freely read, reuse and distribute published results.

Open and compensated
peer review

Transparent and recognized: all reviews are open to public, a contribution of each reviewer is tracked.
Curated: the quality of reviews is verified by independent curators.
Compensated: reviewers are paid for their work in internal currency of the platform.

Research funding mechanisms

Time-saving: allows scientists to do without proposal writing and avoid administrative burdens.
Many at a time: research projects can simultaneously (a) be allocated grants by funding bodies operating on the platform (b) earn internal currency as a reward for contribution of expertise (c) find an investor.

DEIP is self-governed by scientists

The platform is not owned either by the DEIP team or by any other central body. By design, it is governed by scientific community to pursue its interests; scientists themselves define the direction and future of the platform and influence the distribution of funding. Technically, this is possible due to decentralization.

Digital economy
for science

Scientists and funders are brought together

DEIP facilitates interaction and exchange of value between them, saving scientists time for getting funding, and funders – administrative costs on screening projects.

Scientific contribution is incentivized and rewarded

DEIP runs the emission of its own internal currency – the same as national currency in any country. It is used to reward scientists for scientific contribution on the platform.

Scientific contribution is monetized

DEIP reflects scientific contribution through economic means – internal currency. Thus, any research project on DEIP is a digital asset that can be sold to investors.

Who we are

We are a growing international community of academic and technological experts, aiming to increase the efficiency of modern science.

Among us are blockchain and open science enthusiasts, scientists and researchers in basic medical sciences, computational and bioorganic chemistry, mathematics and economics. We are supported by Blockchain for Science, Blockchain for Social Impact, Open Science MOOC and other initiatives.

DEIP is running public testnet

We invite blockchain enthusiasts, developers and scientists to run node, simulate transactional activity and contribute to science by improving the DEIP blockchain.
