Quality open publishing: The role of libraries in supporting and sustaining new publications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper


A growing number of libraries, particularly in academic libraries, are supporting the creation of new journals, and monographs as part of their commitment to open access and open research. But in an environment where researchers are also focused on research quality, what is the role for libraries in supporting start up publications that take some time to accrue quality measures? How do we provide support to editors on alternative measures of quality, alternative metrics, and dissemination and indexing strategies? And, how do these influence the level of support libraries are willing to provide to new publications? The presentation will include case studies from the UNSW Sydney Library, a major research-intensive public university, that supports publication of three journals and that also provides expert support to researchers on publishing strategy.
