NomadIT helps academics get their research into the public domain: whether they wish to do this by running a journal, posting a blog, or recording videos. As a registered publisher with CrossRef, we can assign DOIs to academic outputs.
Peer reviewed journals and other online serial publications
NomadIT were an early-adopter of the open-access and open-source Open Journal Systems (OJS), and currently run and maintain two OJS journals: Anthropology Matters and Teaching Anthropology. While the publishing software is free, it takes a degree of expertise to keep it updated, and an understanding outlook to train new editors to use the platform!
NomadIT can set up and customise a WordPress website so that you can start blogging about your research project, from a personalised domain, secure in the knowledge that we are backing up your site and can fix things when automated updates and your chosen plugins no longer function as they should. For example: GPID
NomadIT have two or three freelance colleagues who we can engage to help shoot videos at conferences and workshops (additionally live streaming these to your website), carry out the post-production editing work, and upload these to YouTube/Vimeo. For an idea, see this DSA Seminar series, Ethno Sensations and NomadIT’s YouTube channel.
NomadIT can design the layout of your work to have the maximum impact with readers, while using eco-printers in Scotland and Estonia (or local to events we’re running) to print your work with the minimal impact on the environment as possible. View a selection of our conference proceedings.
As academic publishing is a rather heterogeneous category, we would need specific details in order to quote. We’d estimate the hours required which would be charged at our hourly rate of £36/hr plus VAT.
