conpher by numbers

We have launched conpher with

  • over 22,000 journals
  • from more than 4000 different publishers
  • 1.2 million items of pre-populated data collated directly from the NIH PubMed database regarding actual journal publication times
  • Sherpa Romeo Licence Data available for all our listed journals
  • COPE registered titles
  • DOAJ registered titles
  • CiteScores available for reference in conpher

And as conpher grows, reviews from your colleagues will be added to this data to provide actual insights, experiences and opinions.

“conpher with the pros”

conpher has gathered together a panel from university scholarly communications offices, library research support leaders and journal publishers.

Each week we will answer questions and queries received from you – academic researchers around the world – with regards to your academic journal publishing queries.

For example: a senior colleague is advising you to submit to a journal they favour, but the majority of your writing team prefer another title. How should you handle this decision?

or… if I have an option between a paywall journal and an Open Access journal, which should I choose?

We are here to help you, so if you have a query, question or a challenge for the panel, please send it to [email protected] and we will try to share our knowledge and experiences.

the heartbeat of conpher is sharing your publishing experiences with colleagues and receiving advice in return.
