Hindawi has signed a publishing partnership agreement with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Hindawi will support AAAS by providing post-acceptance publishing services for AAAS’s new Science Partner Journal publishing program. AAAS anticipates its first partner journal will launch in early 2018.
The Science Partner Journals will use Hindawi’s systems, processes, and staff for the management of accepted manuscripts during the production phase. A new journal platform will also be created to host the published articles. All articles published in the journal will be fully open access, using a Creative Commons attribution license (CC-BY 4.0).
Richard Bennett, commercial director at Hindawi, said: 'This is an extremely exciting project that will see the launch of new important Open Access journals by AAAS and other prestigious academic and scientific organisations. We are proud to be partnering with AAAS and are excited to use Hindawi’s OA systems and expertise to support the creation of this program.'
'This agreement also marks the first journal launch for our recently developed Publishing Partnerships program. We are delighted that AAAS chose our services for their program.'
Will Schweitzer, director of product and custom publishing at AAAS, added: 'We are very excited to work with the entire team at Hindawi. Its Publishing Partnership program provides an excellent solution for us to provide flexible, scalable, cost-effective, and quality production and online distribution services to our publishing partners.'
