Bergen Open Access Publishing

The University Library is now offering a service that supports the establishment and running of open, electronic periodicals for academic environments tied to the University of Bergen.

Bergen Open Access Publishing offers the open source-ware Open Journal Systems for periodical publication. We run and maintain the software and support. Whereas the academic environment is responsible for the administration and publication of the periodical.

The library offers solutions for academic environments that either wish to establish a scientific periodical with open access to content, or whom wish to convert an existing periodical to Open Access. There is a demand that the publications that support such services choose an Open Access publishing model with a Creative Commons license
