Empowering accredited South African academic journals to publish open access articles.
Although Scriber fulfills the same role as most other scholarly publishers in South Africa, we have an different philosophy about publishing. The landscape of academic publishing has changed so drastically in recent times and we have entered the market with a different agenda. Our aim is to empower academic journals to thrive in this open-access era. Although we fulfill as many traditional publishing roles as required, we aim for a future where a journal can become self-sufficient in as many areas as possible.
We try to remain in the background as much as possible and create the infrastructure required by journals. The Scriber team consists of two full-time and one part-time employees.
We have been publishing accredited online and printed journals since 2014.
