A unique Impact Factor Protocol

for the academic world

making Impact Factors immutable and controlled by academics

The problem is the state of the scientific publishing world

The Imagjn Platform

Datafloq is expanding with a new project called Imagjn. Imagjn is a platform for the academic world. It will simplify the act of writing scientific papers, make publicly funded research easily available to the public and offer all stakeholders fair rewards when publishing scientific papers by creating immutable public impact factors for academics, papers and universities. We aim to fix the academic world and improve the scientific method.

 Every actor in the academic world will develop an immutable Impact Factor that is controlled and owned by that actor and as such can be monetised. We aim to move the academic world away from the power of commercial publishers and the flawed Journal Impact Factor. Instead, Imagjn will offer collaborative cloud tools to speed up publishing scientific papers while ensuring transparent and immutable peer reviews. Therefore, the Imagjn Impact Factor Protocol (IFP) will be:

% (n)

The Imagjn ecosystem will consist of the following components:


Imagjn develops a private blockchain owned and controlled by the academic world, where actors can be in full control over the individual Impact Factor.


The Distributed Ledger Technology ensures immutable but transparent Impact Factors, which will become the new norm for the academic world.


The academic community will be able to collaborate effectively and efficiently, speeding up the peer-review process from years to weeks, enabling instant publications.
