The most important repository of mathematical and physical sciences already contains 1.6 million e-prints. arXiv provides a platform for sharing e-prints openly for peer review. Over the years arXiv has grown into a giant, encouraging the birth of similar repositories in other scientific fields. This has been a challenge for arXiv maintenance, both in the technical and administrative sense. In this article, bibliometrics expert Eva Isaksson describes arXiv history, development and challenges.
Editori brings new opportunities for scientific publishing as well as in teaching and learning. As an open access publishing and editing tool, Editori also supports open science practices at the University of Helsinki.
The University of Helsinki’s own open access publisher Helsinki University Press (HUP) has refined its publishing and service processes and is preparing to publish its first books. HUP will also publish scientific journals in the future.
