6. A Publisher is a company/corporation responsible for performing printed or digital publications, using modern and very specific tools. Publisher acts as an interface between the Author/Editor and the corresponding readers, being usually not the creator of the material. As an example for a Journal, the Publisher ensures processing and publication of articles, and provides the necessary steps for indexation. The indexing result depends in great extent by the quality of the published articles (closely related to the number of citations received), and by the selection criteria of databases (which are specific to each database, and that can change over time).

Advantages in having a Publisher:

  • The online environment and programs have evolved considerably, online publishing activity involving more tasks and tools than the simple creation of a site (management of specific metadata, software systems for submission and peer review processes, etc.). This means that a serious and competitive publication of digital journals involves a dedicated Publisher. Publisher means credibility and professional services.
  • The evaluation of journals by international databases is periodic, and this evaluation takes into account the evolution/ updating of the journals according to the current trends and rigors.
  • Journals belonging to the same Publisher support and complete each other, not only in terms of published topics, but also regarding dissemination of content and citations.
  • Finally, publishing costs are lower when you use a dedicated publisher, due to the existence of specific and fixed costs that are divided on several journals.
