Positive evaluations of open access monograph platform Kriterium

Kriterium is a platform for high-quality peer-reviewed academic books. All publications undergo rigorous peer-review to obtain the Kriterium seal of approval which also assures that the publications are available open access. The platform was launched as a pilot project in 2015 in order to support the monograph in a time of changing publication patterns. Coming to the end of the three-year-long pilot, the project has been evaluated by two scholars: Isak Hammar, Lund and Stockholm University, and Helena Francke of Borås University.
