Are you involved with an established, subscription-based journal that is considering a transition to Open Access? One of our ambitions is to free journal editors from as much of the practical operation of running a journal as possible, leaving them more time to focus on the content. Journals with NOASP are published on a modern and reader-friendly platform that provides optimal dissemination and availability.

With NOASP, journal editors receive:

  • professional assistance in launching and running a journal from experienced editors with special expertise in Open Access
  • a dedicated journal manager who is responsible for seeing articles through all production phases – typesetting, proofreading and publishing
  • a user-friendly portal for all workflow stages of article production, from submission and rounds of peer review and revision, through to publication of the accepted manuscript
  • iThenticate for plagiarism detection
  • technical and editorial support at every stage

Every journal is assigned its own journal manager from the NOASP staff to assist the journal’s editors, authors and peer reviewers at any stage. We also work actively with marketing the journal to both readers and potential authors, as well as with approval and indexing in various databases.

Open Access on NOASP makes possible extending the impact area of the journal and reaching new groups of readers, whether the journal is Norwegian, Nordic or internationally oriented. The distinction is often made between “green” Open Access and “gold” Open Access. NOASP’s publications are gold Open Access: articles are always freely available, in their entirety, to everyone from the moment they are published.

NOASP’s infrastructure is optimized for Google Scholar and other search engines. We set up each journal in accordance with criteria from DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals), and all articles are published in several file formats (PDF, XML, HTLM and EPUB) for maximum reach.
