A paper recently published in Polar Research has made quite a splash in the media. The New York Times, CNN, BBC, Washington Post, the Guardian and many, many more media outlets have covered the epic journey of an Arctic Fox walking from Norway to Canada in 76 days, as reported by Eva Fuglei and Arnaud Tarroux. We congratulate the editor, authors and last but not least the fox (!) and we are proud to have helped put this paper online for the world to learn about this astonishing feat.

We are proud to announce a new publishing partnership with the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) to help publish their journal Polar Research.

As of January 2019, Polar Research is published by the NPI with full support from Open Academia.



Open Academia is partnering with Publons to recognise the hard and essential work of peer reviewers. Read more here.


Open Academia is proud to announce that our partner journals have all been awarded the DOAJ seal - a mark of certification for open access journals that achieve a high level of openness and adhere to Best Practice and high publishing standards. 














The Open Access movement has changed the world of publishing forever. As Open Access publishing evolves and gains momentum, traditional publishing houses have a hard time keeping up. The need for author-friendly, flexible and highly configurable systems, has left many publishers in the backwaters. More and more academic societies are now turning to open source technologies to manage digital publishing on their own. And that is where Open Academia comes in.







We offer full back office publishing solutions as well as individual services ranging from editorial support, production, OJS 3 website design and maintenance.  For existing journals making the transition to open access, we can import the full archive in OJS. For journals recently upgraded to OJS 3, Open Academia can provide training sessions for editorial staff as well as website design/makeovers.


We form partnerships with academic societies and we also support smaller presses looking to publish open access journals. Read more here.



We believe academic publishing should be resituated within the research community. Academic societies need to take back control of their own publications and we can provide the infrastructure and know-how to make that happen. Our focus on the author experience sets us apart from traditional publishers and other service providers. Happy authors is our endgame.


We passionately believe in the value of open and wide access to scholarly research.


Making the transition to open access, and complying with the technical and editorial critaria as laid out by Plan S, may prove difficult for many journals with limited funds. Open Academia can provide affordable support in this transition. Contact us for more information.
