Collaborative Open Access (COA)

A new model of sustainable open access platform

Why make XML tagging alone, when you can have a complete scheme with the latest technology,

visibility and an economic return for the same cost?

Range of products and services designed to strengthen academic publishing tasks. This is a sustainability and visibility solution for scientific journals that includes XML marking, generation of online reading products, as well as generation of portable reading products and their exhibition and commercialization.

Basis: XML tagging

OA Product: CygnusMind HTMLCygnusMind IAR

Support Products: CygnusMind PDF CygnusMind ePUB

Our two options:

  1. Own design (the original design of the journal can be recovered).
  2. Custom generic design: a guide to create and set the color lines, logos, and name of the publishing institution is included.

COA consists of three basic modules of technological solutions: XML tagging, generation of online open access reading formats, and commercialization of portable reading formats.

Under this approach:

CygnusMind will

  1. Tagg all your articles with XML JATS, allowing them to be globally shared into a technological and scientific level.
  2. Generate online reading products: CygnusMind HTML and CygnusMind  IAR (Intelligent Adaptative Reade) to offer complete open access contents in your journal’s main website, for better visibility for digital readers and online translators.
  3. Finally, generate portable value-added products, which are distributed into an academic business platform in return for a small donation.

The Publisher wil

  1. Pay for XML JAST tagging only.
  2. Obtain files under XML JATS standard, plus 1 or 2 online reading products (CygnusMind IAR or CygnusMind HTML) to be posted in their main website in order to have open content.
  3. The CygnusMind ePUB and CygnusMind PDF products will be created immediately for readers and academics to buy as a support mechanism for journals, while obtaining added value: portability and off-line reading.

Based on the article’s selling records, its cost will be paid to CygnusMind. Once this cost is covered, incomes per article will be transferred to the journal with a low platform usage fee.

In no case will articles in portable formats generate a cost to the journal, and in all cases the journal or, where applicable, the author, will retain the rights.

The XML JATS tagging complies with the applicable standards required by the main regional databases.

This technological advantage gives the greatest visibility for web search engines and indexers.

The generation and online publication of CygnusMind HTML or CygnusMind IAR allows you to meet the requirements of Open Access.

The distribution of your articles in portable reading products, in exchange for an economic donation from the readers that download them, offers a way for economic recovery.

No need to charge for publishing.
