Streamlining the Publishing Process
For one of NSUWorks’ first publishing ventures, library staff collaborated with the Editor-in-Chief of The Qualitative Report (TQR), an open access, online-only journal.
A well-known and popular journal, TQR at that time handled its production through:
- A third-party submission system
- Editors’ personal email accounts
- NSU’s website
Migrating to NSUWorks streamlined the process by consolidating editorial functions into one system. This migration also included a bevy of additional features such as:
- Automatic cover pages
- Built-in peer review workflows
- Better search engine optimization
Since switching to NSUWorks, TQR has increased their submissions, downloads and interest from established journal-harvesting services, such as Web of Science.
NSUWorks now hosts many additional journals.
