Versita to Publish Swedish OA Journal

Versita agreed to begin publishing the peer-reviewed, open access (OA) Journal of Official Statistics (JOS), the flagship publication of Statistics Sweden.

Sweden’s administrative agency for official statistics helps the government and private sector customers in decision making, debates, and research. Statistics Sweden handed over publishing duties of JOS to Versita because of the company’s prestige, says Dawid Cecula, head of acquisitions at Versita. Versita, which became part of De Gruyter in 2010, is now the second-largest OA publisher in the world.

JOS, a quarterly English-language journal, spotlights the production process of official statistics that range from survey methods to policy decisions. The journal will be available on De Gruyter’s online OA platform; researchers will be able to access back issues of the journal on Versita’s website in September.
