Publishing platforms for journals, serials and books

The University Library is administrator for two platforms dedicated to open access: University of Stavanger: Open Journals for publication of journals, and UiS Scholarly Publishing Services for books and serials. These platforms make it easy to release new open publications, and convert established journals and serials to open access publication.

All articles are given a DOI. This increases visibility online and in search engines, and makes citing easier. For all journals peer review is demanded, and they must meet the requirements for scientific publishing at minimum level 1.

In UiS Scholarly Publishing Services, researchers at UiS can publish books they want to make openly available for students and everyone else interested in reading them. Reports and serials can also be published in UiS Scholarly Publishing Services.

All journals and other publications are indexed to increase visibility in search engines. This, together with open access, increases the possibility for impact and more readers.

The University library is responsible for administration of the platforms, in cooperation with IT, and will provide training and support for editors and academic environments at UiS. The library will also perform some of the technical tasks in the publication process, while all editorial responsibility remains with the publisher/editor.

Contact the University library if you have any questions about this, or if you wish to publish on one of the platforms. If you are considering starting up a new journal, or releasing a book, the library can guide you through the process.
