MyScienceWork announces launch of Enhanced Repositories for research, beginning with Luxembourg lab LBMCC
The company now offers personalized archives for research production, enhanced with tools for metrics, communication and networking
We are thrilled to participate in the revolution happening right now in the communication of science, with the launch of our interconnected repositories

MyScienceWork announced today the launch of its new research repository service, unveiling the archive and website dedicated to the LBMCC. This Luxembourg laboratory is devoted to research on the molecular and cellular biology of cancer and has equipped itself with a MyScienceWork Enhanced Repository to increase and improve its international visibility.
“We are thrilled to participate in the revolution happening right now in the communication of science, with the launch of our interconnected repositories,” MyScienceWork CEO Virginie Simon says. They are the result of four years of expertise and commitment to the dissemination and valorization of science. More than just a traditional repository, this tool also responds to the daily and crosscutting challenges facing every institution in the world of research: communication, networking, collaboration, and steering of research priorities. Dr. Marc Diederich, director of the LBMCC (Laboratoire de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire du Cancer), is keenly aware of the importance of highlighting their science. “Today, it’s not just about journal impact factors, but the impact of our own work, our citations and international visibility. More and more universities also consider metrics like the Eigen Factor and the H-Index in the promotion and evaluation of researchers. We need to optimize these metrics with tools, information and interaction on the scientific level.”
The innovative approach of the Enhanced Repository, based on the interconnection of new digital tools and the community sharing its strengths on a single international platform, creates a virtuous circle between scientific information and its impact on society and the general public. Dr. Diederich expects the LBMCC’s repository to optimize the exposure of their work, helping the lab reach not only researchers in the field, but also in other disciplines and non-scientists concerned by cancer research, as well. “I hope to see a dynamic develop where people are coming to see what we do, where they’ll contact us to ask for reprints, details, and collaborations.”
Following on the launch of the LBMCC Enhanced Repository, MyScienceWork will continue the expansion of its European market and, in 2015, will begin integrating the American market.
