Publishing Solutions


Open Academia is partnering with Public Knowledge Project (PKP) to provide a complete production- and publication service that includes processing manuscripts through copyediting, typesetting, proofreading (liaising with authors), online publication, indexing and archiving. The Open Academia staff also serves as the peer review support contact for all system users: editors, section editors, authors, reviewers and readers. Basically, we offer support on all core elements of the publishing process. We are the well-oiled machinery working behind the scenes. An efficient back office working to enable academic societies to publish research with the prestige and freedom of their own institutional imprint. 


  • Technical setup and configuration of the peer review system/publishing platform (OJS)
  • Designing and maintaining the journal website
  • Quick turnaround, high level system support for all OJS users
  • Plagiarism checking software
  • One-on-one training in OJS 3 for editorial staff and daily support
  • Trafficking manuscripts, page proofs, and publication files to and from authors, editors, and vendors
  • Ensuring timely publication in the following file formats: PDF, HTML, EPUB and XML
  • DOI deposits for immediate data mining, reference, and citing
  • Content feed to archiving and indexing databases where the journal is covered

In short, Open Academia offers support on all core elements of the publishing process, from the technical and nitty-gritty aspects of production and dissemination to supporting authors and editors on a daily basis.

Open Academia offers OJS journal hosting on commercial-grade hardware (PKP Professional Plan) for all back office clients, but we are also happy to work with journals that already have a hosting solution in place. Our objective is to support independant publishing and for some, that may mean a separate hosting plan. 

We are the proud Publishing Partners of the following journals that are not hosted by Open Academia:

Research in Learning Technology

International Journal of Infection Control

Journal of Shelter Medicine and Community Animal Health

Archives and Manuscripts

International Diabetes Nursing

Journal of Character & Leadership Development

Journal of Global Medicine 

Journal of Clinical Education in Physical Therapy

Wildlife Rehabilitation Bulletin

For journals that do not need the full back office service, but still want to elevate the journal’s online presence with multiple file formats and metadata deposits, Open Academia is offering a Production Editor service that includes:

  • Copyediting and typesetting (via a professional supplier)
  • Proofreading (liaising with authors and typesetter)
  • Online publication in PDF, HTML, EPUB, XML format
  • Delivery of content to indexing- and archiving services
  • DOI/Metadata deposits (including references) to CrossRef

When a manuscript has been accepted for publication, Open Academia will step in and take care of the entire production and publication process, in close cooperation with authors and editors.

The Production Editor services come at a cost of USD 55/EUR 55/SEK 580 per published page (PDF). VAT will be added to customers within Sweden and the European Union, except non-Swedish organizations that provide their VAT-number. We are proud to provide Production Editor services to a growing list of journals.


Our focus on the author experience sets us apart from traditional publishers. Open Academia does not lock down clients in long contracts. We want you to stay on your own accord and we believe you will.

We offer tailored solutions and a friendly can-do attitude. Let's get in touch!
