Leading publishing technology enables you to do more and lower costs

We're leading the way with new technology to help you lower publishing costs without sacrificing journal quality. With Scholastica's end-to-end journal software and services, you can streamline peer review, get all of the article files types you need (PDF, HTML, XML), and publish professional-grade online journals. We're constantly introducing product improvements to help your journals work smarter.

Get the high-quality metadata and integrations you need without the manual work

We know that producing high-quality metadata for indexes and search engines can be a struggle. That's why Scholastica automatically generates machine-readable XML files in the JATS standard for all of our open access publishing users and typesetting customers, with rich metadata, including article copyright, funder details, and persistent identifiers. Plus, Scholastica integrates with major indexing and archiving services including DOAJ and Portico. So you can automate article deposits saving time and costs.

Happier and more efficient editors, authors, and reviewers

Scholastica is designed with users in mind, with an intuitive interface, mobile-friendly pages, and free user support for editors, authors, and reviewers. Our products and services seamlessly integrate so peer review and publishing managers can easily track work across multiple journals, and editors can move manuscripts from peer review to production to publication without skipping a beat.

At Scholastica, we're committed to supporting sustainable, high-quality open access journal publishing. Our mission is to help lower the cost of scholarship, and we're doing that by making it easy and affordable for journals like yours to meet core publishing standards and comply with initiatives like Plan S.
