A New Partnership
We are excited to announce our new partnership with the University of Maribor Press (UMP) to provide them with promotional and technical services for their publications. We have begun by indexing two of its prestigious Law Journals—Lexonomica: Journal of Law and Economics and Medicine, Law and Society—and the University of Maribor Press Books in featured collections. Additionally, we have set up a University of Maribor Press Super Collection. These collections place UMP’s publications within the ever-growing ScienceOpen database of over 70 million academic records. We have also planned that ScienceOpen will provide substantial technical services to UMP, such as book DOI deposit to Crossref, metadata enhancement, and reporting new content from the journals to Dimensions, DOAJ, and Crossref.Continue reading “Welcoming the University of Maribor Press!”
