We support you in achieving your publishing goals
Magknowlia empowers you to build your own publishing house without the logistical burden of setting up and without the usual high running costs. We partner with you to create and grow your publishing programme. We provide the publishing platform you need, take the pain out of operational administration, and ensure worldwide marketing.
What we do
We partner with you to create and grow your own publishing house under your own brand. Publishing yourself means taking control of what you publish, who you work with, and how you use your assets to your own best advantage. In any language. In any territory. Under your own imprint.
Who do we partner with?
We partner with universities, companies, and research groups or societies that want to boost their own brand rather than that of a commercial publisher.
What do we publish?
In accordance with your goals, we publish journals, books (monographs and edited works), textbooks, working papers and case studies. We also help you to market publications that have previously been published, but have not yet fulfilled their potential.
We will meet with you discuss your aims as an organisation and as a publisher, and then set-up our services accordingly. We will guide you on how to best organise your resources and set up your internal editorial infrastructure. Marketing is a key element in the success of any publishing venture, yet one that is often overlooked; we will advise you on how to communicate effectively to maximise the impact of your publications.
We will design, create and manage your publishing house website for you. We will ensure that the publishing website integrates neatly with your institution’s site and branding.
To prevent misuse, we provide plagiarism checks with the help of partner companies like iThenticate.
We provide professional language editing, proof-reading, typesetting, metadata and taxonomy creation. We offer our services in English, German, French, and Spanish; other language options are available.
Production & Distribution
When it comes to production, our value-add is centred around structured content in the form of XML (eXtensible Markup Language) using the industry standards BITS and JATS. We include identifiers like ISSN, ISBN, and DOI, whilst also incorporating ORCiD as well as Ringgold ID’s. From this we output in electronic formats like HTML 5, EPUB, and E-PDF, which can be distributed via your website as well as various dissemination channels. We can also create and deliver print versions where desired, thus adding incremental revenue as well as enhanced distribution.
Abstracting & Indexing
We partner with a wide range of abstracting- and indexing services like Web of Science,, Scopus, Dimensions, PsychInfo, MLA, and APA and can feed to any other service desired.
We provide all regular download and usage statistics. Other standards, such as altmetrics, are also available.
We offer extensive training for authors, editors and inhouse management to master all challenges as they relate to publishing. We work with you to become independent.
The licence you use for your publishing output is up to you, though we recommend CC-BY-NC. We only provide publishing-as-a-service and never claim any copyright; all content is yours, in perpetuity.
We regularly post news to our media outlets and will work with you to complement your institution’s own marketing and PR operations. We also advise and train your authors on how they can effectively self-promote their content and research on social media.
We charge a very competitive, all-inclusive annual fee for a tailored publishing package, crafted according to your requirements. Our services can be extended as your publishing develops – for example, you may wish to add print-on-demand at a later date. The margin on such print sales will flow back to you directly, which can substantially offset the overall cost.
