Cessation of Certification of Publishers

Amyluv's bookmarks 2017-12-07


In a pilot phase in 2014, the FWF introduced the possibility of certifying publishers. The main objectives the FWF wanted to achieve for publishers with this measure were:

  • peer review: establishment of its own quality assurance process for the selection of scientific publications and introduction of standards for the peer-review process,
  • transparency: creating transparency in the provision of services, the cost structure of books and their open-access publication,
  • open access: maintenance of uniform standards for the open-access archiving of books.
