The Open Access movement has changed the world of publishing forever. As Open Access publishing evolves and gains momentum, traditional publishing houses have a hard time keeping up. The need for author-friendly, flexible and highly configurable systems, has left many big publishers in the backwaters. More and more academic societies are now turning to open source technologies to manage digital publishing on their own. And that is where Open Academia comes in.
We believe academic publishing should be resituated within the research community. Academic societies need to take back control of their own publications and we can provide the infrastructure and know-how to make that happen. Happy authors is our endgame. We passionately believe in the value of open and wide access to scholarly research.
