Electronic Journals and Archives for Electronic Publications
Linköping University Electronic Press
"Linköping University Electronic Press (LiU E-Press) was established
by a decision of the Board of Linköping University in 1996. On April
1, 2004 LiU E-Press became an independent unit with our own board and
associated with the Linköping University Library." The administration
of the Linköping University Electronic Press consists of the Board
with the Chair, Vice-Chair, Board members, and Student
representatives, and a Secretary. The Staff of the Linköping
University Electronic Press consists of the Editor-in-chief, one
Publishing editor, one Editor, and one Technician.
The websites of LiU E-Press have information
e.g. on the ethical issues and the contracts to be signed
between the authors and the LiU E-Press. According to the contract,
the LiU E-Press keeps the works available a
certain period of time.
The rights of the LiU E-Press are not
exclusive, but the works may be published by another publisher.
All the publications are copyright protected.
The websites contain
on the technical issues on formats,
style, etc. used in publishing documents.
"Articles at LiU E-Press are not submitted to a peer review, as in
scientific journals. LiU E-Press may publish articles which have not
yet undergone peer review and may also publish the successive
versions of an article, which may be the result of the peer review
process. In other words, it is quite possible to use LiU E-Press for
publishing the first version of an article for the purpose of
spreading it and receiving comments. This constitutes an open review
by peers in a broader sense. LiU E-Press shall not be used for
publishing incomplete and not thoroughly written manuscripts"
