Orvium to end the researcher injustice
There has been injustice among the researcher, and the source of such injustice is the triple pay loop system. This system is the current environment for any scientific publication that not only harms the research it also harms the science as a whole. This system makes every researcher lose their motivation and willingness to do more research and thus can hinder the progress of scientific advancement, this injustice system will make the society prefer the predatory or low-quality journal which the source and the ideas are questionable. These journals are made only to advance someone on their academic career, or in pursuit of a certain academic degree. The low-quality journal nowadays has plagued the internet and being used mostly by every student of the university.
The triple pay system simply comes like this. The government pay the researcher by a minimum fee, since they work on a voluntary basis, and thus make them lack in research motivation. Then the researcher will do a research on their respective field, and thus give it to the publisher for free. Then the publisher will sell it to the government, and the government sells it to the academic institution, which is likely to be read by the scientist who made the research. This not only insulting the researcher but also will make them underpaid since the researcher needs to share their money in an unfair amount to the government and the publisher. This is what makes the researcher lower their journal quality and thus making it cheaper.
But this indeed poses a long-term threat, where the research that has been conducted by any scientist and researcher will not be very informative and innovative. It will contain a less useful data which are not quiet impactful towards the society and thus giving them no solution regarding the current problem. This is truly ironic since the scientists are the vanguard of science to generate solution towards the societal problem. We need to cut off the root of the problem, and ending this vicious cycle. After an extensive research, we can find it easily that the main problem of this cycle is the researcher that is being discriminated and treated unfairly, whereas the publisher hog all the profit for themselves, and the government do little about the current situation.
The second problem that is haunting the researcher is the idea thievery. This is actually a dilemma for the entire researcher. In one side, they know once they publish their work online, they will be threatened by several issues such illegal download, an idea being stolen, and so on. This is what makes the researcher afraid of publishing their work online. But if they are not publishing their work online, therefore they work and their name will never be recognized and thus they will not gain a profit they need to continue their research.
Next problem is the length of the validation process. As we already know, the validation and assessment process is what makes the researcher discouraged to submit a new research. This validation process is the most important process for every researcher since they can finally license their research and therefore gain profit by selling it. But unfortunately, the researcher needs to take a good time waiting their research being reviewed by the peer reviewers.

Those dire situations we have mentioned above can be tackled down by the emerging platform that could intermediate between the reader and the peer reviewers. This way, the peer reviewers could conduct the reviews immediately after the paper has been published. Doing the reviews is also rewarding in this platform, and therefore the peer reviewers will have a huge motivation in doing so. The researcher will also become motivated by doing more research since it is more rewarding and promising. This is the sole solution to disrupt the triple pas system that has been haunting the researcher for decades.
Introducing Orvium, A Solution For Every Researcher
To put it more briefly, we shall state several benefits that are obtainable once the researcher joins the environment of orvium.
- Zero delay publication
As we have stated before, the delay is what annoys the researcher. Since this platform is decentralized, meaning there will be no queue in the line, and the peer reviews can be conducted the moment the paper has been submitted to the system. This is indeed a huge difference between the conventional methods and the orvium platform. The decentralized models meaning that the paper and the peer reviews can be met inside the platform, without the intervention of the platform itself. This works similarly just like any social media you can see. You can chat whoever you want without asking permission to the platform.
- Authors are licensed
The license is also obtainable on this platform, as that is the most basic thing for every paper published by every publisher. Like any publisher, this platform will also gain a license and it is selectable whether it is a free license or the paid license. But either way, the author will be given a full copyright property once their paper has been licensed by the platform. The licensing process also not takes a long time, unlike any other private or governmental publisher. Through this license, the researcher can sell their paper and gain profit within or outside the orvium platform.
- Cost effective journals or paper
There are complaints about the cost of one journal that is too high, and therefore not liable for any student to obtain it. This is worrying since the student will now prefer the predatory and low-quality journal that has invaded the internet. The platform will reduce the cost of publishing the journal, and therefore the journal can be sold at a reasonable price. This way, both the researcher and the public will receive a great benefit. The public can purchase the journal in a relatively cheap way, and the researcher will have a larger income since the number of sales are rising, and their name will be known too.
- High tech security technology
One of the most feared things that ever haunts the researcher are the idea thievery or the illegal download. This obviously makes the researcher are severely discouraged by doing any more research since they know that their hard work is being illegally downloaded by the people, as they have spent so much money for their research, and they expect the payment to cover the research expense. If the researcher utilizes the orvium platform, then this situation will not happen since the orvium employs the blockchain technology which will protect the document from being stolen or illegally downloaded. The research paper will be able to be downloaded via an orvium token, or be purchased by any other currency.
Research Publication Current Market
The business of research publication is usually undermining since it is not a major business sector in the world. But, that is actually a false premise since the publishing business in the term of research is steadily growing, over 25 billion dollars annually. This is promising business, but yet it has been plagued by the downright features of triple pay loop system. Currently, there are 9 million active researchers in the world and are producing millions of researches annually. And as we know, that number will still grow by the growth of the researcher annually, and the demand for their research too.
That is understandable since the technological advancement, as well as the civilization advancement heavily, relies on the researcher. That is why this platform wants to give a reward for them, as they have actively engaged in the betterment of society as a whole. But unfortunately, there are several barriers that have been erected between the public and the research, such as:
- Scientific and social factors
This factor is the most common factors known to all researcher. This factor includes their idea being stolen, or their paper being illegally downloaded. They also fear their reputation as they try to approach an issue by the different angle. They also distrust common people knowledge, as they can’t comprehend what the researcher means, and that will render their research useless as the demand the more simple and practical use of their research.
This is more likely to come from the demand of the industry since they demand more technology and ideas that are usually impracticable and unnecessary. They also demand that the researcher follows what the company wants, and therefore prohibiting them to make any innovation. In the less advanced countries, there are many brilliant scientists that are capable of producing a good research but lack of infrastructure; therefore, they need to postpone their research or to move to another developed country. The research paper are also scattered across the world, and disorganized, and therefore need to be integrated further.
The policies that are imposed by the government or the private enterprise are often not suitable for the researcher. There is countless examples such the time-consuming peer review process, the licensing that is too costly, and so forth. The policies that government-imposed are usually too pragmatic, meaning they only want the research that has the usefulness of the practical situation, rather than a more idealistic approach.
Those issues are really hindering the research effort conducted by the researcher and therefore making the academic world more and more contaminated by the low-quality journal that is made with less effort and less money to spend. This is actually a threat to the long-term situation where humanity’s science will be gradually declining and hampering the civilization growth.
Fortunately, the market entry of orvium is ready to break those barriers by enhancing the system to be beneficial for both the researcher and the public. This system will be proved so prospective for the researcher and will encourage the researcher to do more research in the future.
As for the sales of this token, unfortunately, the website has not yet launched the exact date for the pre-sales. But as expected around this month, according to their grand plan, which is somewhere in the second and third quarter of the year. but we do know the exact amount of token that will be sold, which are around 379 million dollars’ worth. The hard cap of the sale will be around 20 million dollars cap, as the soft cap is not defined yet by the orvium. As for the distribution, of the token, only 60% token will be sold publicly, as the rest of them will be distributed to the advisor, team, and developer.
The token acquisition methods are various; one of the simplest methods is through purchase via dollars or any other currency. The only currency that is acceptable by the orvium is ETH, where one token worth around 0.10 dollars. This number will eventually rise after the pre-sales, and as the demands of this token arise, and the supply of token is not changed. If you do like investment, then it is better for you to join the pre-sales since this pre-sale will give you a certain sum of the bonus of token.
The second method of acquiring this token is to give the peer review. Giving any per review will reward you with the medium token, and therefore giving the reviews now are so rewarding and benefiting for the reviewer. As the token utility, you can use the token for purchasing any kind of paper that exist in the platform, or you can also exchange that token to obtain a more reliable source of exchange, such dollars.
This form of business is what gives the maximum benefit for the reviewer and the researcher. This environment also very proper for the business development, as the research will goes on and rewarded, rather than utilizing the current environment which is more complex and punishing for the researcher, and thus discourages the further research.
