Föredömligt av dessa tidskrifter att med hjälp av professionell förlagsservice
öka synligheten internationellt. Den service som idag erbjuds via dom svenska
universitetens och högskoloranas arkiv är undermålig idag eftersom ingen
hjälp ges med marknadsföring och spridning utan enbart är en passiv förvarings-

Versita Open Expands to Scandinavia

First Scandinavian Journals Join Versita Open

Warsaw, 30th of June 2011

For 10 years Versita has been a successful publisher of own and
third-party scholarly journals from Central & Eastern Europe.
Professional e-publishing technology solutions and e-marketing
services provided to journals published by universities and academic
institutions recently attracted also customers from outside the
region. Three Scandinavian serials: Nordic Studies on Alcohol and
Drugs, Nordic Journal of Migration Research and Sommerfeltia are now
included in the portfolio of more than 200 Open Access journals
published by Versita Open.

The newly contracted Scandinavian journals, besides the basic pack of
services, have also selected optional functionalities such as online
submission system (Editorial Manager), copyediting, language and
technical editing. With the professional support from Versita,
journals that make their content available for readers at no cost can
enjoy the same sophisticated online publishing technology and powerful
marketing tools used by paid-access journals of large international
publishers, and can compete with them in terms of impact.

Kerstin Stenius, Editor-in-Chief of Nordic Studies on Alcohol and
Drugs (NAD) comments: “As most other scientific journals, we have
lately noted the increased demand on researchers to publish scientific
articles, but also increasing competition between journals over the
most interesting and ground-breaking findings. We look forward to the
professional assistance of Versita in getting a higher scientific
impact by being included in even more prestigious indexing systems.
Open Access through Versita gives NAD the possibility to reach out
with new scientific findings through the internet, which has become
the most important source of information for most citizens”.

Dawid Cecula, Business Manager of Versita Open, comments: “Expanding
our portfolio with publications from Northern Europe is a signal for
us that a need for professional publishing services in the Open Access
area is also shared by countries from outside the region. For this
reason, we have decided to expand beyond Central and Eastern Europe
and enter Scandinavia, which will help us even better fulfill our
mission of global dissemination of scientific research.”
