QScience.com is the innovative and collaborative, peer-reviewed, online publishing platform from Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals (BQFJ). As major reflection of QScience’s commitment to support research and sustainability it offers a fast and transparent Open Access scholarly publishing process, which is centered on the author, bringing their research to a global audience. While primarily aimed at specialists, the general reader can also find items of interest.
It already hosts 12 scholarly journals covering diverse subject areas such as information and library studies, sustainable energy, education, medicine and bioscience, Middle Eastern healthcare, law, design and Islamic studies. Many other journals and services are scheduled to be added in 2013.
QScience.com is expanding its open access program by offering fully open access books, which will extend QScience’s established journal portfolio. The books are freely available in pdf, ePub and Kindle formats for reading on screen, printing out, or to be read on mobile devices, such as phones and iPads. QScience.com book titles will be listed in the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), the discovery service for OA books which increases the visibility of QScience open access books. Additionally, it is possible to order a hard copy of the book through a forthcoming Print-on-Demand (PoD) feature. This service will be offered through a third-party and provides the reader with a professionally-bound, acid-free paper version of the book.
