We cordially invite the publishers of scientific journals and books to make their publications available in the Library of Science.
Our goal is to increase the visibility and availability of Polish scientific publications, which for publishers implies reaching new communities of readers and authors. The cooperation with us is free of charge and non-exclusive. We may host current as well as archival issues.
The Library of Science hosts over 1500 Polish scientific journals that yield a few hundred thousand articles altogether. We are well visible on the internet, our content is indexed by search engines and it is also easily available through a public API. For many users, ICM UW services, including the Library of Science, are a default starting place for searching for scientific content.
The platform allows to browse full-text resources originating from five thematic databases:
- AGRO (journals on natural and agricultural sciences)
- BazTech (journals in engineering and technology and exact sciences)
- CEJSH (journals in humanities, social sciences, theology and arts)
- DML-PL (journals in mathematics)
- PSJD (journals in medical and health sciences).
The publications are made available in the Library of Science on the basis of contracts concluded by publishers with ICM UW. The contracts are mutually free of charge and non-exclusive, and as such they do not restrict publishers in their possibilities to make their content available elsewhere.
The representatives of publishers cooperating with ICM are given user accounts allowing them to access their publisher’s profile. Registered users also have access to the application allowing them to manage their publisher’s resources on the platform. It allows for automatization of metadata input (e.g., by importing from systems such as OJS) and simplifies work reporting (e.g., by downloading statistics and reports).
For our current and incoming users we offer free of charge training in technical, operational and legal issues of Open Access. We offer technical support in the input and editing of data and legal support in relation to the implementation of free licenses.
