Vega is an academic publishing system that offers a range of customizable features and workflows to interact with data and multimedia—taking editorial management and academic publishing into the 21st century. With Vega, authors can author, editors can edit, and publishers can publish print-like or multimedia texts of any type. Vega’s most interesting features include the following:
Rich Media Publications
Through Vega, users can submit, edit, and publish high-quality academic publications that make use of rich media, source data, video, and interactive experiences. Vega therefore allows you to incorporate robust multimedia content into your editorial workflows and publishing venues while also providing traditional media options.
At all stages of the publication process, Vega offers flexible editorial and production workflows that allow for traditional or open peer review, recursive copy-editing processes, and design-editing opportunities for multimedia.
Vega is completely customizable in structure and presentation to suit the needs of individual publishers, both in the editorial dashboard and in front-end production.
Your Content, Your Way
Vega is content-agnostic, meaning that you can use it to publish almost any file type, such as
- Print-like articles, chapters, and books
- Scholarly multimedia webtexts/articles, chapters, or books
- Interactive PDF-type articles, chapters, and books
- Stand-alone media files
- Data sets
- Other file types that may arise in the near future
Free and Open Source
Vega will be available worldwide and free of charge. With the system’s permissive license, you can modify, extend, and contribute to the code as long as you provide attribution to the project developers.
