Offered by ZPID, PsychOpen is an online platform for publishing scientific contributions in psychology. PsychOpen is guided by the following principles:
PsychOpen fulfills the highest professional publication standards in implementing these guidelines thus ensuring the international visibility of the publications.
a preprint publication forum where scientists can upload their manuscripts which are scheduled for publication
supports secondary publication of already published works after a statutory embargo period (Green Open Access)
a community augmented meta-analysis platform
PsychOpen Gold offers a high-quality publication platform for the primary publication of scientific literature. All journals must meet clearly defined quality standards such as peer review of the submitted articles, an international editorial board, and English-language metadata. PsychOpen journals are represented in international scientific databases including Scopus, PubMed Central, PsycINFO, PubPsych, and DOAJ.
PsychOpen Exchange is a preprint publication platform where researchers are able to upload the manuscripts they would like to have published. Publishers/editors of scientific journals (e.g., so-called overlay journals), after review and revision of the articles, offer the authors the opportunity to publish their manuscripts.
PsychOpen Green is a platform for secondary publication of scientific literature. As is the case for all publications in PsychOpen, secondary publications are available free of charge (Open Access), even when the initial primary publication was published requiring a fee.
In response to the increasing demands in psychology and its related disciplines, we are creating PsychOpen CAMA (Community Augmented Meta Analysis), an infrastructure to collaboratively compile the findings from primary studies to facilitate meta-analytical syntheses of the data.
