"The Open Library of Humanities, Birkbeck’s Centre for Technology and Publishing, and the University of Huddersfield Press have entered into an agreement to migrate the Press’s journals to the Janeway platform.
Janeway is a modern, open-source academic publishing platform written in Python using the Django framework. It has a commitment to an easy-to-understand codebase; an aesthetically pleasing design; and top-end functionality, including a preprint server and overlay journal support. The platform only supports open-access publishing and will never incorporate paywall facilities into its code. Janeway is developed by the Centre for Technology and Publishing at Birkbeck, University of London.
Professor Martin Paul Eve, project lead on Janeway at Birkbeck, University of London, said: “We are delighted that Huddersfield University Press has become the first external Press to migrate its journals to our software platform. In this way we aim to provide a low-cost solution for external partners seeking a technological platform for their open publishing enterprises. As a result, everyone benefits from high-quality research being made openly available.” ..."
