A Workflow for Open Peer Review: Case Study UCL Press

Peer review is a key element of scholarly publishing, but for the past decade the research community has struggled to move beyond the black box and develop new open models of research evaluation. University College London and UCL Press would like to change that. Since the beginning, ScienceOpen has been committed to open peer review – now offering post-publication review options for over 62 million articles and preprints. So, with the vision of a university-led publishing platform based on open review principles, UCL Press teamed up with ScienceOpen to create the journal “UCL Open: Environment”.

Join UCL Press and ScienceOpen for workshops to explore opportunities around open publishing models for your university press.

Over the last year UCL Press and ScienceOpen collaborated on the development of an open publishing platform, UCL Open, and the launch of its first multi-disciplinary journal, UCL Open: Environment.

Open peer review, editorial moderation, community engagement, transparent processes, and rich metadata feeds are all essential features of the UCL Open platform. The ScienceOpen discovery technology and a unique research-driven curation architecture powers the ability to embed broad scope publishing into the whole of research outputs while nourishing niche topical communities.


Open Publishing Models for University Presses

In these free workshops we will share our joint vision for the future of scholarly communication and our experience in realizing and communicating this vision. Throughout the workshop we will introduce UCL Press’ goals for a university-led open publishing system, ScienceOpen’s vision for open platform publishing models, as well as give a live demonstration of the publishing technology, the editorial workflow and the technical solutions we developed together on the way.


If you are a university or society press, or simply interested in the future of university publishing, then register for free and learn more about a model of platform publishing that:
  • enables rapid, transparent and open communication of research results,
  • supports student journals, and
  • provides easy and inexpensive publications for university-run conferences
