Orvium – Open and Transparent Science Powered By Blockchain. Orvium is the first open source and decentralized framework for managing scholarly publications life cycles and the associated data. Orvium unlocks the full potential of a decentralized, fair, transparent and competitive market, free of biases, oligopolies and private interests. Scientific work is available from the moment it is submitted. Orvium establishes an independent, decentralized and immutable time-stamped proof of existence, authorship and ownership. A public trace of all the activity is kept in the blockchain: submission, revisions, accepted and rejected peer reviews, copyright and user license changes, etc.
How it works
Authors select license and own the copyright. Orvium produces bespoke licensing models by design. The model is always the author’s own decision.
Research Data and Process. Orvium empowers scientists to share their complete studies by making available research data, code, etc. This increases scientific validity.
Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning. Orvium integrates Big Data Analytics with the blockchain. This unlocks valuable insights to improve scientific production.
Decentralized Journals. Decentralized journals offer a low maintenance, highly flexible, cost effective and completely autonomous way of handling and categorizing scientific literature, while offering an additional line of business for authors and editors.
Collaborative Environment. Orvium provides a collaborative framework for any single process related to the manuscript life cycle.
Involve Society in Scientific Evolution. Orvium invites the general public to redefine journals, to create challenges that increase scientific validity and to promote patronage campaigns in both the public and private sectors.

Contributors earn revenue based on their contributions and the rules defined in the smart contract. The operational costs associated with reviews, copyright agreements and Orvium Licenses are covered by the owner’s stake. Journals are managed as decentralized autonomous organizations by smart contracts. These are defined transparently by contributors, who offer ORV tokens and receive specific Journal Tokens. The management rules are publicly available. Journal tokens empower contributors by providing decision-making capabilities using a variety of voting and participation schemas. More info in whitepaper.
