Why choose Digital Commons Publishing?

All-in-one publishing platform

Discover an article submission process and peer-review management system that’s easy to use. We offer a scalable service that grows with you: whether your institution is in the early stages of developing a publishing strategy or if you have an established publishing program focused on improving journals to enhance their reputation.

Be seen around the world

Best-in-class search engine optimization (SEO) ensures your journal sites are highly ranked and discoverable on search engines such as Google, Google Scholar and Bing. Sharing your institution’s journals with the world, on your terms, can attract more funding for new research explorations and contribute to the broader, more global reach of your institution’s scholarship.

Measure your success

Insightful metrics demonstrate your journals’ influence. Your Digital Commons dashboard shows where your journals are being read in real time. You can filter, export and share analytics such as reader location and usage trends with authors and stakeholders throughout your institution. The dashboard also incorporates PlumX Metrics, which journal editors can use to make strategic decisions along with a full suite of metrics including citations.
