    About Ubiquity Press

    Ubiquity Press is an open access publisher of peer-reviewed academic journals and books, and next-generation institutional repositories. Our flexible publishing model makes open access affordable, and enables researchers around the world to find and access the information they need, without barriers.

    Researcher-led publishing

    Ubiquity Press was founded by researchers at University College London (UCL) in 2012. We believe that the aim of academic publishing should be the widest possible dissemination of research, and are therefore 100% open access. To enhance the reuse potential and impact of research we also strongly support the publishing of associated resources such as data and software.

    To be as close to research as possible we support university and society-based publishing. As well as operating our own highly cost effective press, we also provide access to the platform to give universities and societies the infrastructure and services they need to run their own presses through the Ubiquity Partner Network, and allow societies to earn income from open access.

      

    Customer Charter

    In 2018 the shareholders of Ubiquity unanimously resolved to adopt a charter for the company to enshrine its business practice.

    1. Open Access
    All articles and books published by Ubiquity will be open access, meaning that the content is universally and freely accessible via the Internet, in an easily readable format, with a Creative Commons Attribution licence.

    2. Open Source
    The Partner Press Platform produced by Ubiquity and licensed for use to members of the Ubiquity Partner Network will be open source, meaning that all code will be free for reuse as long as Ubiquity is held harmless in respect of it.

    3. Unbundled Products
    All Ubiquity products will be available for sale individually and shall not be made exclusively available as part of larger product bundles.

    The Charter is to be maintained even in the event of a change of control of the company, overseen by our Partner Advisory Board.
