The field of academic research is one of the hot reform fields at present, which has been widely concerned by many scholars and academic circles. As a new distributed infrastructure, blockchain technology has the characteristics of decentralization, point-to-point transmission, consensus mechanism and cryptography technology, and is especially suitable for academic research. In the academic field, the dissemination of research results, experimental "reproducibility", academic copyright and other issues. Combined with examples, this paper integrates blockchain with academic scenes, so as to improve the ecological environment of the current academic field and provide new ideas for the exploration of academic research field. Finally, this paper discusses the current research status and challenges of the academic application of block chain, and makes a prospect for the research.
