BodoArXiv: Open Repository of Medieval Studies
peter.suber's bookmarks 2019-04-01
"Named after a Carolingian peasant made famous by historian Eileen Power (1889-1940), BodoArXiv gathers scholarly literature in medieval studies across the disciplines. It provides an open, non-profit repository for papers at different stages of gestation, including works that may later find themselves in article form and/or behind a paywall. Anyone can access and download any item on BodoArXiv freely and immediately, in adherence to the basic tenants of the Open Access movement. Beyond helping authors make their scholarship more visible and discoverable, BodoArXiv fosters collaboration and mentoring as a platform that supports various forms of peer review.
Upload your work in progress, delivered paper, draft chapter, article or book manuscript, texts already accepted for publication and after peer review, or even fully formatted texts–if you have permission to do so! Any text you upload does not immediately undergo a full peer review. Instead, within a few days it will be checked for compliance under our moderation policy. If all is in order, the paper’s “pending” status will end, making it accessible to anyone. From that point on, your work will be safely and permanently stored and have a stable digital object identifier (DOI), which you can share and embed. If and when the work is published in another venue, you may add that DOI to your paper page in BodoArXiv. You may also use the platform’s capacity for collaboration by allowing people (including co-authors) to comment on your work...."
