Research Integrity

Rigorous Peer Review

University of Huddersfield Press ensures that all research output, in both journals and books, is thoroughly peer reviewed by expert reviewers. Publications of a commentary or opinion nature may not be sent for external peer review but will include editorial review and revisions. All of our journals adhere to the COPE guidelines for best practice.


All Open Library of Humanities content is indexed with CrossRef and assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). We are currently in the process of joining Crossref Citedy-by, so that citations can be tracked by the publishing community.


As members of Portico, University of Huddersfield Press content will always be made available as open access, in any eventuality.

We fully support and encourage author self-archiving of all content (sometimes termed 'green' open access). We are registered with SHERPA/RoMEO to ensure that the license terms and self-archiving policies of the journals are 100% clear.
