UNIGE in action

Open Access Publications

  • Assignment of DOI to each item
  • Static pages of presentation of the journal (field, editorial policy, scientific committee, rules for authors...)
  • Manuscript submission interface
  • Workflow management and archiving for the editorial process (sending manuscripts to reviewers, receiving reports, discussions with the editorial committee...)
  • Archiving and preservation through the Archive ouverte UNIGE and SAFE-PLN network.
