Event Title

Process Flow for Publishing Scientific Open Access Journals: the Publication of EUROSIM’s SNE – Simulation Notes Europe

Session

Mechatronics Robotics and System Engineering

Description

This contribution presents the process flow for scientific open access journal publication and discusses the challenges for authors, editors, production team, and publication team – on the basis of SNE Simulation News Europe, EUROSIM’s scientific membership journal. For authors, the publication process shows a linear structure: contribution submission, contribution review, contribution acceptance, contribution layout, contribution proof reading, and electronic contribution publication. In behind, in big publishing companies different teams are engaged with these steps, financed by the business model of the publisher. EUROSIM has decided for open access publication, without article processing charge for the authors. Consequently most work must be done honorary, voluntary, and complimentary work. Basic financing is coming from membership publication fee of the EUROSIM societies. As benefit, members of EUROSIM societies can download issues and articles in high quality and with extended content, and SNE gives publication space to EUROSIM societies for post-conference publication of contribution of the EUROSIM society’s international conferences, and for Sen Special Issues edited by EUROSIM societies. SNE’s open access strategy requires a workflow which makes mainly use of open access software tools for layout, and electronic web publication – e.g. LATEX, and (Open) Office for layout, and Typo3 for electronic web publication at www.sne-journal.org.
