Sabinet Announces New Service Offering: Open Monograph Press (OMP) for Seamless Online Publishing
Sabinet is delighted to announce the addition of a new service offering: Open Monograph Press (OMP) by Sabinet. OMP is designed to provide institutions and publishers with a comprehensive online book and monograph submission and peer review management system and dissemination platform for both PDF and ePublications, complete with local support and training.
Sabinet’s centralised publishing strategy aims to streamline the publishing lifecycle by bringing together an organisation’s online submission, peer review, and dissemination activities. With OMP by Sabinet, we are taking a significant step forward in helping publishers navigate the challenges of the online book publishing era and making workflows more accessible and affordable.
Sanet Vos, the Head of Products at Sabinet, says: “Sabinet is very proud to be able to now also offer Open Monograph Press as an affordable books and monograph online publishing option to South African publishers. Our aim is to make it possible for South African publishers to publish in a sustainable and affordable manner with the assistance and support from our online publishing expert at Sabinet.”
OMP by Sabinet brings a range of benefits to institutions and publishers, including:
- A full, end-to-end solution for publishing books, monographs, edited volumes, conference proceedings, corporate newsletters, and research papers with worldwide dissemination and discovery.
- A single, intuitive workflow for managing submissions and conducting internal and external reviews, supporting both blind and non-blind review processes.
- A platform for societies, publishers, presses, and individuals looking to publish their eBooks and monographs.
- An integrated PayPal payment system, opening the market for academic publishers to sell their books locally and internationally.
The new service offers a complete online publishing solution, including a step-by-step submission wizard, flexible editorial workflow, and tools to track progress and success. Publishers can distribute book and chapter metadata in machine-readable formats like ONIX and OAI-PMH and integrate with industry standards such as DOIs, ORCID authentication, and ROR affiliations. The software supports multiple languages and allows publishers to own their data with no lock-ins or walled gardens—meaning that you can use the available import/export plugins to deposit your data where needed.
With over 20 years of experience in supporting scholarly publishing, Sabinet understands the importance of maintaining a sustainable and thriving industry. By offering affordable local currency deals and a wide range of online publishing products, Sabinet is committed to helping institutions and publishers transition into the digital era and secure the longevity of their content.
