Journal FAQs

What is EuroPub?

EuroPub is a project to list and categorise academic open access research repositories. The aim is to provide a comprehensive and authoritative list of such repositories for end-users who wish to find particular archives or who wish to break down repositories by locale, content or other measures.¬†EuroPub will also provide listings to third-party “service providers” – typically search services who wish to use the categorised lists within their service. This will increase the accessibility and use of the content of these repositories, which will benefit the authors of the research material and the researchers who wish to find it.

How are journals classified ?

All journals in EuroPub are classified. The classification is made by our editorial team as a journal is accepted for indexing in the database. If a publisher chooses to upload article metadata to us, a journal’s articles inherit the same classification.

How do I log in to my account? How do I get an account?

Only publishers need accounts, that with submitting their journal, username and password will be sent to them automatically. Everyone else is free to use EuroPub without logging in.

What does EuroPub contain?

A descriptive list of open access repositories of relevance to academic research. The project is surveying the growing field of repositories and categorising them according to suitable and useful measures.

Is EuroPub a search service?

Yes. Although EuroPub was not originally intended to provide a search service for individual articles held in repositories, the advent of Google’s Custom Search Engine has made this possible. You can therefore now both search for the full-text of material held in open access repositories listed in the Directory using Search, or use¬†EuroPub to find repositories.

How can I submit a journal for indexing?

For indexing a journal you should, fill in an application on our website.

The journal I am looking for isn’t in EuroPub. Why?

It may be that the journal hasn’t applied or that its application is still pending. It may be that the journal was removed from EuroPub.

Does EuroPub just list institutional repositories?

EuroPub will list open access research repositories whatever their basis – institutional, subject based, or run by a research funding body.

How do I delete documents from EuroPub?

With your request the full-text of your title stored on EuroPub will be immediately deleted from our server .

How long will documents remain on EuroPub?

All documents will remain permanently on EuroPub, unless the author(s) or the editor(s) request withdrawal.
