Mission statement

Linköping University Electronic Press (LiU E-Press) is a non-for-profit Open Access publisher. We host a dozen academic journals and a number of databases, we are the publisher of conference proceedings, dissertations and other publications from Linköping University (LiU).

All journals published by LiU E-Press are Open Access, meaning that they are freely available online. Several of these journals have been active for more than a decade and most of them are indexed in high-quality databases and directories such as Scopus, DOAJ and the Norwegian list. We also publish conference proceedings with a connection to LiU.

We are also hosting a number of databases, primarily containing historical data.

In the institutional repository and publishing plattform DiVA, we publish dissertations, student theses, e-books and working papers in our different series. DiVA is also used for registration of publications by LiU researchers and for parallel publishing of articles previously published in subscription-based journals.

All authors publishing with LiU E-Press retain the copyright of their work and their publications are given Creative Commons licenses. LiU E-Press does not charge any publication fees.
