About Open Books at LU

Open Books at LU: Humanities & Theology is a publishing platform for open access books at the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology at Lund University. The press is based on Open Monograph Press (OMP), an open source system for publishing or parallel publishing books online developed by the Public Knowledge Project, the creators of Open Journal Systems (OJS). OMP handles metadata in a similar way to that of OJS, making the data reusable in search engines, catalogues and databases. Additionally, both systems give their users control of the whole publishing process, from submission through peer review to the final publication.

OJS is currently in use at a few faculties at Lund University, the journals are available here: journals.lub.lu.se. Lund University Library manages software installations and updates for both systems, but support to editors who use them is provided from their respective faculty libraries. As of now, Open Books at LU is only available for researchers at the Joint Faculties of Humanities. If you are affiliated to the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology and have questions about the system, please contact forskningsstod@htbibl.lu.se. If you are at another faculty, please contact publicera@lub.lu.se.
