EUREKA - Revolutionizing the Process of Publishing and Scientific Review by Making It More Efficient and Fair

Hello everyone, If you are interested in joining the EUREKA project, it is a good idea to read reviews that can help you get information that might help you see their vision and mission, below:

EUREKA is a scientific review and rating platform fuelled by the EUREKA token from EKA Blockchain Solutions GmbH. Blockchain has the capacity to open science and make research findings immutable, transparent and decentralised. EUREKA revolutionises the scientific publishing and reviewing process by making it more efficient and fair using the EUREKA token to compensate all parties involved. Scientific discoveries can now be openly rated and rewarded based on the quality of the research.

The REWARD system


Timestamping of scientific data
Scientific observations are timestamped, hashed and recorded on the Ethereum blockchain. This gives the author or inventor immediate ownership rights, and ensures scientists’ and researchers’ discoveries are tamper-proof.


Peer-to-peer evaluation
Scientific observations undergo crowdsourced, peer-to-peer reviews which are transmitted and recorded on the EUREKA platform. The EUREKA platform will make use of crowdsourced wisdom and reviewers to get fast, accurate evaluations of the work, instead of being restricted to one or two reviewers, as is common practice.

Worth assignment

The EUREKA platform’s crowdsourced scoring of scientific work will provide researchers as well as publishers with a new metric that can be used to evaluate submissions more swiftly. Preprints or observations with ratings and reviews will be archived through the EUREKA decentralised and distributed system. In cases where the author wants to publish in a traditional journal, the scores can be transferred to the journals. The test scores are also available to funders, universities and prize or awards committees.


Funding research, career, awards and prizes
EUREKA will have the first blockchain-based scientific rating system, preprint server and single observation platform that provides reliable, immutable scores and data that can be transferred on the blockchain to funders, institutions and directly to journals. Sources of funding could make decisions based on ratings and reviews on the EUREKA platform.


Incentivisation of replication research
EUREKA tokens are allocated to pay for replication studies to either confirm or contradict existing studies. Researchers confirm the study, and both the original author and the replicating author are automatically compensated with EUREKA tokens. This ensures the reproducibility of findings, and minimises wasteful time and financial spending.

Data analytics

AI-based prediction e.g. drug discovery
An artificial intelligence-based prediction tool will make use of ScienceMatters’ algorithm which identifies related studies and observations by cross referencing annotations and links them to form a narrative. This technology could be leveraged to predict targets for drug development.
