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.
