Press Release – Launch of Kvasir Publishing

We are pleased to announce the launch of Kvasir Publishing, a non-profit, open access publishing house.
Our objective is to provide free publishing options for researchers (professional and amateur), educators, and students regardless of country and level of education. The key word there is free. We mean that in both senses of the word. We want to give academics more liberty to publish, and likewise there are no fees for this. There are no financial costs to the editors, authors, or readers. The only costs involved are the time and effort that authors (as well as editors, scientific committees, peer reviewers, and the myriad of other people who work behind the scenes) already put into conducting, writing up, and presenting their research. The only thing that we ask in return is that all materials published with Kvasir Publishing become freely available to the public from the moment that they are published.
It is our hope to bring together journal editors, research institutions, and individuals to work together under the collective umbrella of our shared goals of making academic and educational publications free to the public.

Get involved

Do you or your organisation publish or intend to publish a journal? Are you a researcher interested in making your research results publicly available? Are you an individual or institution who supports our idea of free, open access publishing? Do you have free time and an interest in getting involved with our work?
Kvasir seeks to form partnerships with other organisations and institutions who share our objectives. We also seek volunteers to help with the various aspects of running the organisation, editors to propose, start and run journals, and most of all authors who are interested in making their publications freely accessible to fellow scholars.
If you feel that you have something to contribute, we’re interested in hearing from you.
