About Loop

Loop is the very first open, cross-platform network for researchers and academics.


Born out of Frontiers, the first seeds were planted in 2010 with the launch of the Frontiers on-line profiles. This transformed into the Frontiers Research Network in 2012, with the final re-launch in 2014 of Loop as a standalone research network.


Loop profiles are available for integration into all journals and academic websites, allowing for the discoverability of researchers and their work across multiple domains. Loop is committed to enhancing the academic reputation and impact of researchers within an international community, enabling them to stay up-to-date with new research and connecting them to their peers.
