Publishing Technology, PLC, which provides software and services to the publishing industry, will build an academic publishing platform for GSE Research. The new online platform will use pub2web, Publishing Technology's semantic web-based publishing software. GSE Research hopes to connect the scholarly community, policy-makers, and the corporate world by building an interactive sharing community around the platform.
The direct-to-digital platform will support research into governance, sustainability, and the environment. It will be one of the first offering an open peer review model in addition to the traditional peer review system, in an effort to speed up the submission process and encourage collaboration and engagement among users.
