The urgency in accelerating the development of medicines and cures is critically evident now and sharing work for reproducibility enhances the benefits of collaboration in the life science research community” – Tory Cenaj, Founder, Partners in Digital Health

We are pleased to announce the world’s first life science research portal for authors and global communities of the peer review journals Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY) and Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT). The newly launched portal will register each original research article’s provenance on the blockchain for every author to create a permanent and immutable public record of their work on the blockchain for the scientific community.
The PDH+ARTiFACTS portals provide custom dashboards for each journal so authors and research teams can:

  1. Transact smart contracts on the blockchain to secure the provenance of their research files and receive citations in real time
  2. Control access to their research materials
  3. Synchronize with their ORCID ID’s and works including many other capabilities and features

With this new portal, Partners in Digital Health provides BHTY and TMT authors a valuable service that

  • Links supporting research materials with articles
  • Increases the citation impact of authors and these journals by accruing citations to the supporting research materials linked with articles
  • Derives real time insights from views of research activity across the publication, author community, and
  • Identifies emerging research of interest for BHTY and TMTY communities

“We recognized the value of this blockchain enabled research platform early on having establishing the first journal portfolio partnership with ARTiFACTS. The urgency in accelerating the development of medicines and cures is critically evident now and sharing work for reproducibility enhances the benefits of collaboration in the life science research community. “Building trust through truth” provides the foundation to build open and equitable access in real time across scientific communities. We’re ethically bound to facilitate finding faster ways to bring open data to market,” stated Tory Cenaj, Founder and publisher, Partners in Digital Health.
ARTiFACTS utilizes blockchain and Web 3 technologies to create a searchable and citable index of metadata for pre-published and published works. ARTiFACTS transacts blockchain records on the bloxberg ledger, the global leading science-focused Ethereum blockchain-based infrastructure, managed by an international consortium of prominent research organizations and led by the Max Planck Society’s Digital Library.
David Kochalko, CEO and Founder of ARTiFACTS, said ”We are delighted to offer ARTiFACTS services to Partners in Digital Health journal authors and respective global communities interested in the innovative research emerging about blockchain applications and telehealth advancements in healthcare. As a scholarly publishing leader collaborating with ARTiFACTS, PDH reaffirms the role BHTY and  TMT play as innovators driving the enhancement of  scholarly communications.”
The PDH+ARTiFACTS portal is live for authors and the research community to use at the following links:

The bloxberg Blockchain Consortium for Science aims to foster collaboration among the global scientific community, empowering researchers with robust, autonomous services that transcend institutional boundaries.
ARTiFACTS is the first public blockchain based application specifically designed to enable researchers to create a permanent and immutable record of research material in real time. As the first partner building on the bloxberg Ethereum-based distributed ledger to provide researchers with real-time stamping and citation-focused tools, ARTiFACTS is an academic and research platform utilizing distributed ledger technology enabling Registered Users to upload or provide a link to a central repository of research. Users establish proof-of-existence for their materials and track and link them by instigating immutable transactions on a secure blockchain. Materials include digital files of any description. Users may choose from many alternative file or code repositories for storing their research and users retain control over how they are accessed and by whom.
With millions of metadata records of research outputs in ARTiFACTS, the pool of discoverable and citable works continues to grow daily. Having recently introduced full synchronization with services like ORCID, ARTiFACTS services are easily accessed by the over 8 million member ORCID community.
