Online presence is nowadays a must for any printed journal. Beyond the regular exposure of online journal content, the QSerials platform allows you to administer the entire process associated with publishing and reviewing journal content. Articles can be submitted online, entering immediately the editorial que, with the final purpose of displaying the published content online. The interface allows administering both free journals or subscription-based content.
In QSerials, each content (journal, journal issue, article, contributor) will have its own web page and id, a prerequisite for professional journal archiving websites. Individual pages contain the appropriate metadata for each content type. Due to the logical internal structure of the journal website, the displayed content is more likely to rank higher when searching content on the Internet.
The QSerials journal database creates a logically structured collection for the the indexed material. Journal content is searchable for both metadata and full text. The filtering facets based on established metadata, allowing quick filtering of content, can be configured as desired.
The web application is uses technology optimized for mobile devices. Accordingly text, image content and page structure is adapted and optimized to the screen size of the reading electronic device. In case the content of a journal article is also available in plain html format, the text will be fully readable on mobile devices with smaller screens as well.
QSerials allows you to administer the entire content editing process. Contributors can easily submit their content for publication online, and editors may establish simple or more complex peer-review processes (involving multiple actors with different user roles and access rights).
The system allows content administrators to view statistical data, to bulk edit content, or to mass import-export published data (for instance for aggregator pages, electronic databases, other institutional repositories).
Both the regular user interface, as well as the administrative pages can be set to multilingual. Whenever available, the reader or editor can choose between different language versions of the same content with a simple click. This can be useful, for example, in case of summary / abstract pages of journal articles which might be expected to be exposed in more than one language. Language detection can also be automated according to certain parameters (browser language, language preference of the logged in user, etc.).
