Towards Open Science: The Case for a Decentralized Autonomous Academic Endorsement System


The current system of scholarly communication is based on tradition, and does not correspond to the requirements of modern research.

The dissemination of scientific results is mostly done in the form of conventional articles in scientific journals, and has not evolved with research practice.

In this paper, we propose a system of academic endorsement based on blockchain technology that is decoupled from the publication process, which will allow expeditious appraisal of all kinds of scientific output in a transparent manner without relying on any central authority.
