About

Focus and Scope

Ubiquity Proceedings is a low-cost, open access proceedings journal, publishing the output from conferences within all disciplines. The focus of the journal is to provide a platform for conference organisers to easily publish and disseminate the content of their conferences on a professional and fully indexed journal platform in an affordable manner. The journal is not subject specific and will consider applications from conferences of all disciplines.


Publication Frequency

The journal is published online as a single annual volume with each conference appearing within a designated issue. Issues are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. There is no embargo on the journal’s publications.

Authors of articles published remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative Commons license agreement.

Authors are encouraged to publish their data in recommended repositories. For a list of generic and subject specific repositories that meet our peer review criteria, see here.


Archiving Policy

The journal’s publisher focuses on making content discoverable and accessible through indexing services. Content is also archived around the world to ensure long-term availability.

Journals are indexed by the following services:

CrossRef, JISC KB+, SHERPA RoMEO, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), and Google Scholar. In addition, all journals are available for harvesting via OAI-PMH.

To ensure permanency of all publications, this journal also utilises CLOCKSS, and LOCKSS archiving systems to create permanent archives for the purposes of preservation and restoration.

If the journal is not indexed by your preferred service, please contact us or alternatively make an indexing request directly with the service.


Annotation and post-publication comment

The journal platform permits readers to leave comments on the publication page, via the Disqus service. Readers will need a Disqus account to leave comments. Comments may be moderated by the journal, however, if they are non-offensive and relevant to the publication subject, comments will remain online without edit.

The journal platform also includes in-browser annotation and text highlighting options via hypothes.is. Readers will require a hypothes.is account to create annotations, and will have the option to make these public or private. This option is only available for papers with html/xml full text display, so may vary between conferences.


Advertisement policy

The journal only displays advertisements that are of relevance to its scope and will be of interest to the readership (e.g. upcoming conferences). All advertising space is provided free of charge and the editor and publisher have the right to decline or withdraw adverts at any point. Adverts will include a text heading to make it clear that they are adverts not related to the journal.

If you wish to propose a potential advert then please contact the editorial team. All advert images will have to be provided to the publisher.
