Abstracting & Indexing

UCL Press works with subject specific indexers to deposit published articles in relevant repositories and search databases. You will find further information including a list of current indexing arrangements in place for the journal, here.

 


Peer review

UCL Open: Environment operates a preprint server post-publication open peer review model (the names and affiliations of reviewers are published alongside their review reports). Further detailed information about how this works as well as the journals Editorial policies can be found here.

 


Article publication charges (APC)

UCL Open: Environment levies an Article-Processing Charge (APC) to all non-UCL authors once the article has been editorially accepted (not for submission). The APC price is set as low as possible to cover the open access publication costs of the article, including typesetting, copyediting, publication, and indexing. Detailed information about the charges made and what these cost can be found here.

 


How it works

Where traditionally scholarly publication and peer review suffers from a lack of transparency, recognition and accountability, UCL Open: Environment is different. Operating dually as an open access e-journal and offering immediate publication in a dedicated preprint server, with open peer review, the entire publishing process will be accessible, transparent, accountable and fast.
