Decentralized Scholarly Communication Platform
PLUTO makes scholarly communication reasonable and transparent.
PROBLEM
Research resources for scientific development are being wasted
due to ineffective academic communications.
Costs for scholarly communication is estimated to be $ 77.8 billion which accounts for 1/3 of total costs for research activities.
This is because academic publishers demand high subscription and publication fees based on their past influence.
Nonetheless, academic publishers are not doing their jobs properly, such as passing hundreds of fake reviews.
Rather, they give researchers unnecessary procedures and make them spend excessive resources to share research results.
PLUTO makes Scholarly Communication Reasonable and Transparent,
independent from Capital, Authority, and Centralization.
