ST-OPEN is an overlay journal of the University of Split, and is primarily based on the University’s repositories. ST in the title stands for “students” but is also the abbreviation for the city of Split. ST-OPEN is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary e-journal – an “interjournal”, with the diamond model of open access. This means we do not charge article publication fees to authors or a subscription fee to readers.
ST-OPEN has been created as a new type of overlay journals that has a broad, multidisciplinary scope, with the aim to promote interdisciplinary collaboration across university schools and departments. ST-OPEN focuses on graduate student research (for example, from masters and doctoral programs), selecting best student-supervisor research work for publication. ST-OPEN is opened to students and teachers from the University of Split, as well as from other universities in Croatia that deposit their research in the national DABAR repository.
The first aim of ST-OPEN is an indirect but concrete practical training of students in scientific publishing. This will prepare future researchers for their research/academic careers by training them in standards and practices in scientific publishing. The second aim is to increase scientific production and global visibility for the scholarly research of the University of Split.
ST-OPEN does not aim to publish “great” research or to achieve high research impact, but to serve as a tool to advance research education and training of university students and the visibility of a small university.
ST-OPEN is a multidisciplinary journal, so our Editorial Board is large, including at least one member from each university school or department. However, since there are approximately 150 study programs, “satellite” Academic Editorial Boards exist at each University location. We do not see multidisciplinarity as a disadvantage, particularly in the time when bibliographic database or web searchers and not individual journals are sources of information for researchers.
ST-OPEN follows on the highest standards concerning of peer review criteria and publication ethics, and aims at preserving the integrity of the published record.
