A journal created with Editori can be either a new one or an already existing one. The latter can be the case if there is already a print-journal and there is a desire to change it to a digital, open journal.
Some topics to consider for the editor of a new Editori-journal
If the journal has some history as a printed journal, one can consider whether old practises are preserved or whether there is time for a change. The persons responsible for the journal can scan and add old issues or articles from them at will and we will give training for that. However, we cannot offer digitization of old issues to the Editori-service.
Editorial practices in Editori-service
Creating a journal
The first step of creating a journal is to contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. After agreeing on the use of the tool and training to use it, a written contract is made for the use of the service. In the pilot phase the library will act according to resources available, so there can be a little delay in starting the use of Editori.
Learn from other Editori journals
The editors of current Editori journals share their experiences and views on open access publishing and the use of the Editori publishing tool in the Think Open blog's Editori Stories article series.
