Open access Journals

ISTE OpenScience presents an innovating and unique editorial model of scientific and technical journals :

• Most of the articles are published in French.
• No subscriptions or financial contributions from authors or readers (Diamond Open Access).
• Double-blind peer review by editorial boards.
• Our practices are based on the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
• They are internationally released in the form of books in English, co-published with either Wiley.

Characteristics of the ISTE OpenScience journals

• Each journal’s editorial theme is deliberately strict
• The Editorial boards for the journals are usually limited to five or six members
• Article proposals are accepted in French or in English. (15 to 20% at the most of the articles in English are accepted)
• Article assessments are promptly carried out by the Committee
• The accepted articles are immediately uploaded on Open Access on our website. (The articles are corrected and laid-out beforehand)
• A number for the journal is created when it reaches a minimum of 120/150 pages i.e 5 to 6 articles approximately
• There is no required financial contribution from the author of an article or from his reader
• The best articles are selected by the Editorial board. ISTE publishes them in a multi-authored book in English (the translation is ensured by us)
• These books are co-published with Wiley or Elsevier (www.iste.co.uk) who ensure the international release. They are indexed in the data bases (Scopus, Wiley Online Library)
• All the participants of the book receive royalties (based on the book’s turnover)
