Scholarly Publication: Publishing a journal

An introduction to intellectual property, open access, current awareness, measuring impact for PBRF, and using the Research Repository.

The Publishing Library

University libraries are moving from being the same  set of information in different places to collections of unique material shared with the world.  Publishing is a wide set of activities, from making our higher education degree research available in thesis archives, to hosting fully peer reviewed journals.

The Lightweight Academic Publishing Model - the quick way to set up a professional journal at UC

The University Library is currently hosting a number of journals, and is an option you could consider for hosting your journal, amongst others.

We provide:

The platform is an excellent incubator for new journals.  We require that the journal be Open Access (CC-BY), and we would recommend that you don’t charge APCs if possible.

The downside to this is you would need to manage your own review process manually, and host a ‘front end’ webpage (though the University of Canterbury can provide a WordPress blogsite that would be entirely adequate)

There is no charge for the service.

Publishing Conference Proceedings

Conference proceedings are an important part of scholarly communication, but too often they are stored on essentially temporary websites, and disappear over time.  For conferences held at the University of Canterbury, or organised from Canterbury we can give papers and presentations a permanent, findable home that is indexed by most major search engines, and given standard digital identifiers.
