Orvium - Smith + Crown


Orvium is an open source, decentralized platform for management of scholarly publications and associated peer review processes and data. Orvium aims to address various market inefficiencies of the current scholarly publishing industry, including excessive profits, copyright influence, and opaque review procedures. The platform will offer a competitive and transparent marketplace for publishing, allowing authors and research institutions to retain copyright claims and control access to their work. The Orvium community can create and manage custom journals, as a DAO. The native ORV token functions as a staking and rewards mechanism for the peer review and approval process, enable the creation of decentralized academic journals, and as a payment mechanism for the Orvium research data marketplace.
