SCURL Shared Service and external organisations

We offer a journal and monograph hosting service to external organisations and institutions. Services may be offered on a shared service basis.

SCURL shared service

Edinburgh University Library can provide a journal hosting service on a shared service basis to other Scottish universities and organisations. The shared service is governed by SCURL.  An annual fee is charged.

For more information, please contact the Library Learning Services team.

Visit the SCURL website to find out more about SCURL. 

Non-shared service customers

If the SCURL shared service is not a suitable model, we may still be able to host your journal. An annual fee is charged. In particular, we will consider hosting:

  • journals with a strong connection to Scotland, the University of Edinburgh or city of Edinburgh where there is a recognised benefit to the University or society as a whole in making the content openly available.
  • journals in the field of librarianship, information management, research data management, open access or which support the work of professional services in higher education
  • journals where University of Edinburgh staff have been long standing members of the editorial board
