Empowering 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 are not interested in the ownership of copyright or marketing ourselves at any possible opportunity. We try to remain in the background and create the infrastructure required by journals. The Scriber team consists of two full-time and two part-time employees.
We have been publishing journals online and in print since 2014.
