Publishing house Bloomsbury Publishing, UK, Qatar Foundation and Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) have announced the launch of a new scientific publishing house to be based in Doha, Qatar. The new publishing house, Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals (BQFJ), will publish scientific research developed to the highest international peer review standards.
The development follows the creation of a unique scientific and research environment in Qatar. Together, the six existing universities in Education City alongside other scientific and technical centers are a catalyst for intellectual growth and technological advance. Through BQFJ, research facilities will be complemented by state-of-the-art publishing, using the best technical, communications and editorial systems to provide the basis for a world-leading research publishing programme for the global scientific research community.
The project will mainly adopt the Open Access Publishing model and will cover all research subjects, including medical, physical, engineering, Islamic and social sciences and the arts. Articles and journals will be made available on the same platform as the institutional repository, currently under development in Qatar.
Bloomsbury already has a book publishing operation in partnership with Qatar Foundation that is set to become a major regional and international publishing centre. The creation of a scientific publishing centre will provide the seeds for a leading publishing house based in the Middle East.
