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 Societyand 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.

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
