BHTY Proudly Partners with ARTiFACTS to Expand Use of Blockchain in Scholarly Publishing


BHTY has partnered with ARTiFACTS to integrate blockchain into scholarly publishing workflow & collaborate on research to assess its effectiveness to improve speed, collaboration, access, transparency, & attribution in scientific research. BHTY now provides a blockchain-based service for its author community for PoE, attributions, and indexing of content, plus linking supporting article materials for an early user-community in this leading-edge field.

The effort will include a work group that includes BHTY authors to provide feedback for product development, with the goal of generating an article for publication that contrasts the legacy methods/processes/tools with the first in market approaches of the parties. BHTY publisher, Tory Cenaj, believes the partnership with ARTiFACTS will speed the research cycle, and help build the reputations of subscribing researchers and authors faster.

The service is accessible for any subscriber of the journal. For more information see Information for Authors or read the press release at
