Georgia Open Stacks

The University of Georgia Press is temporarily providing open, read-only access to a selection of our titles in history and other humanities fields. In response to the closures of school, libraries, and other public places due to COVID-19, our hope is provide material that will be of use to students as their classes are moved online or cancelled and to the general public as they self-isolate.

As you read the full texts of these works, you are able to communicate with the author and other readers on our Manifold site or through Twitter, joining existing threads or beginning new conversations. Some author-generated supplemental materials are provided to inform and supplement the teaching, learning, and reading experience. All rights-restricted images and/or text have been redacted.

Mukurtu

Mukurtu (MOOK-oo-too) is a grassroots project aiming to empower communities to manage, share, narrate, and exchange their digital heritage in culturally relevant and ethically-minded ways. We are committed to maintaining an open, community-driven approach to Mukurtu’s continued development. Our first priority is to help build a platform that fosters relationships of respect and trust.

Mukurtu CMS has been developed as an access platform and is intended to serve as one component in your larger digital stewardship ecosystem (access, preservation, sustainability). If you are planning to include use of Mukurtu CMS in a grant proposal, keep this in mind. A successful digital project plan will address the tools, resources, staff, and workflows for digitization (if relevant), preservation, description, access, and long-term sustainability.

OpenProceedings

Open Access to Conference Proceedings

OpenProceedings is a service to the scientific community that originated from the desire of two major Computer Science conferences (EDBT—International Conference on Extending Database Technology, ICDT—International Conference on Database Theory) to make their papers available to the general public for free, following an Open Access strategy.

ICDT and EDBT started this Open Access publication platform and also make it available to other high-profile, peer-reviewed Conference Proceedings. The service is hosted at the University of Konstanz and its University Library, who have a renowned track record of encouraging and supporting Open Access publications.

All material published on OpenProceedings is copyright protected. In contrast to most commercial publishers, copyright remains with the authors, though. All we require from the authors is that they grant a publishing license, typically Creative Commons CC-by-nc-nd 4.0, that permits OpenProceedings as well as others to (re-)distribute the original works. In particular, authors are free to put identical copies on their Web pages and into institutional repositories.

JMIRx

JMIRx (jmirx.org) is a new journal series (launched end of 2019) and new type of journal, which we call “superjournals”.

Superjournals (a type of “overlay” journal) are sitting on top of preprint servers and offer peer-review and copyediting/archiving/indexing, thus do everything a “normal” journal does, except that authors no longer have to submit their manuscript to a journal – instead, our acquisition and review editors find the papers they want to publish and extend conditional offers of publication to interesting articles published in Preprint servers, as well as soliciting reviews and commentaries.

In addition to the “editorial prospecting” workflow, authors can also self-nominate their existing preprints for publication (which is the equivalent to a traditional journal submission), without going through another submission process. If superjournals ask for revisions, these revisions are also uploaded to the Preprint server.

JMIR Publications

JMIR Publications helps innovators in the health technology space to collaborate and to disseminate their innovations, ideas, and research results to the widest possible audience, in a timely manner, adding value to the quality of the work and adhering to the highest ethical and quality standards. We achieve this by using the internet and the latest available technologies as well as by producing conferences and social media, and other innovative knowledge translation products.

We also innovate in the scholarly communication space itself, experimenting with new business models, new models of peer-review and dissemination, and new technologies.

Open Square

Open Square is NYU Press’s platform for publishing and reading open access books.

A browser-based reading platform, Open Square enables us to increase the impact of scholarly work by making it freely available in a digital format and to experiment with new ways of presenting scholarship and adding enhanced content to traditionally published books.
Open Square features new and recently published titles as well as a growing library of classic backlist publications. NYU Press is committed to expanding our offerings in both categories.

Open Michigan

Welcome to the new Open Michigan! As a partnership of the University Library and Health Information Technology and Services, we are the home for all things open at the University of Michigan—including expertise and services for open educational resources, open data, and open publications.

Open Michigan encourages scholars and students to maximize the impact of their work through open sharing. As a public institution, the University of Michigan is committed to serving our university community, the residents of the state of Michigan, and the broader world in which we live. That means making sure that publicly-funded research (and its underlying data!) is accessible to citizens, providing a platform for teachers and students to find and re-use high-quality educational materials, and educating scholars about the benefits of sharing their work with the world beyond our campus.

Throughout our site you’ll find resources for doing all of this and more.
