Posted on February 06, 2024 by Alison Fox

UCL Press is pleased to announce a new journals hosting partnership with Janeway, an open source scholarly publishing platform, providing a more intuitive, improved navigation experience for its global readers and greater flexibility, ownership, and efficiency for our Journals Programme.

The UCL Press Journals Programme aims to create valuable opportunities and contributions to advances in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM subjects at a global level, by way of challenging the publication process/format status quo and providing a unique and open alternative for researchers and the academic community. All 15 fully open access journals published by UCL Press have transferred onto the new platform and can now be found at, including the journal UCL Open Environment, which was  launched by UCL Press in 2019 as the first and only dedicated, multi-disciplinary, Open Science journal, that publishes broadly across all environment-related subjects (

All journals are editorially independent, each supported by its own Editorial Board; carefully appointed to provide specialist subject specific expertise and are published open access to help ensure the widest possible inclusivity, dissemination, and readership. The Journals Programme reaches a global audience attracting a broad range of contributors and we work with a large number of subject specific indexers, repositories, and search databases, including PubMed Central, Web of Science, Scopus, DOAJ, Dimensions, Google Scholar and many more.
