The Journal of Open Research Software (JORS) features peer reviewed Software Metapapers describing research software with high reuse potential. We are working with a number of specialist and institutional repositories to ensure that the associated software is professionally archived, preserved, and is openly available. Equally importantly, the software and the papers will be citable, and reuse will be tracked.
JORS also publishes full-length research papers that cover different aspects of creating, maintaining and evaluating open source research software. The aim of the section is to promote the dissemination of best practice and experience related to the development and maintenance of reusable, sustainable research software.
With an aim to making Journal of Open Research Software financially sustainable, we have raised our Article Processing Charges (APCs) to reflect the costs of publishing the important articles you’ll find here. To establish trust with authors, institutions and funders, we provide a transparent breakdown of how the APC is calculated:
Ubiquity Press provides a lower-cost alternative for authors, funders and universities, and means that library and research budgets can go further. Our fees are fully transparent, and you can trust us that every penny goes towards providing a high quality, sustainable publishing service, and not towards sky-high publisher profits.
