February 22, 2021 – Dorset, UK – Maverick Publishing Specialists and Hindawi Limited have recently entered into an open access publishing collaboration whereby a dedicated team of Maverick specialists and Hindawi’s Publishing Partnerships business division will work collaboratively to broaden awareness of Hindawi’s range of publishing services amongst journal publishers.
Hindawi’s publishing partnerships services, built upon its open-source journal management platform, Phenom, are designed to run open access publishing workflows from submission and peer review, through to production and publication. The program offers publishers the option to retain editorial control and ownership of their journals while benefiting from Hindawi’s proven track record in delivering excellence in open access scholarly publishing. Current partners include leading publishers such as Cambridge University Press, SAGE and GeoScienceWorld.
Maverick is a global leader in providing publishing, technology & content, marketing and research support, alongside strategic consultancy, to publishers and service providers worldwide.
Both companies share a common vision of collaboration for the benefit of the scholarly community, and this arrangement is tangible proof of working collaboratively to advance openness in scholarly communications.
Through this partnership, Hindawi and the Maverick team are best placed to discuss Hindawi’s wide choice of comprehensive journal management and hosting platform services, should Maverick’s publisher contacts need assistance through more of the publishing lifecycle.
“Our clients rely on Maverick Associates to help them keep up to date with the latest Industry trends and developments,” said Maverick President, Martin Marlow. “Collaborations such as this, delivered via dedicated teams, enable us to greatly enhance our ability to do that. We are delighted to work with Hindawi and wish them every success as their publishing services, and the Phenom platform, develop still further.“
Emma Green, Director of Publishing Partnerships at Hindawi, commented: “We are excited about the opportunities presented to us through this collaboration. Maverick’s extensive network and expertise in scholarly publishing, combined with Hindawi’s experience and expertise in open access manuscript publishing, creates a powerful tool for organisations looking for guidance and execution of open access strategies.“
