 Journal Hosting Service

UMinho Editora is open to proposals for hosting of scientific or cultural journals, already published or to start publishing by different Organic Units of the University of Minho, which are interested in receiving the seal of UMinho Editora. The journals will preferably be published online, accordingly with open access policies, respecting all editorial criteria standardized by those responsible for the journals.

This service is offered on the Open Journal Systems platform, which allows to do the editorial management of scientific journals in an agile and effective way, following the good practices and trends on publication support  provided  by academic publishers all over the world. It includes support for the entire hosting process, from the configuration of the site, in order to meet the requirements of international databases, to the beginning of publication of the journals. The hosting platform enables the entire editorial management to be streamlined, starting with the submission of articles, including peer review, text revision and publication of volumes/articles. The service also includes continuous support in the configuration of the platform and support services and editorial helpdesk.​​
