In 2018 Edinburgh University Library partnered with the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland to provide a hosting solution for the Society’s Open Access publications. Building on the experience from the Library’s long-standing OJS service, they set up a journal platform for the Society’s articles and reports, and an OMP platform for books. This partnership led to the formal launch of an Edinburgh-based OJS and OMP hosting service for organizations based in Scotland. Offered as a shared service under SCURL (the Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries), it is a collaborative venture aiming to support and promote Open Access publishing.
