HOPE stands for Hauptbibliothek Open Publishing Environment and is a new service from the Main Library of the University of Zurich. It is intended as a further step towards Open Access, especially when it comes to alternative Gold Open Access publishing models. It also affirms the Open Access strategy of the University of Zurich.
HOPE provides a platform to researchers of the University of Zurich for publishing their Open Access journals. For management and publication of scientific journals, the open-source software Open Journal Systems (OJS) is used. HOPE allows UZH researchers to publish newly founded journals as well as to migrate existing ones. This service is offered by the Main Library of the University of Zurich based on the infrastructure of the Zentrale Informatik. We offer support in technical but also in organizational matters.
HOPE is a project funded by SUC P-2 program «Scientific Information: Access, processing and saving». In this project, the Journal für Psychoanalyse was converted to Open Access. The findings from this transition can be utilized for researchers of the UZH.
