Supporting academic publishing in Ukraine

The publication of scientific results has many benefits and digital publishing takes it all to a higher level, with opportunities for more open access to information and its wider reach. In Ukraine, there was little digital publishing of academic articles and journals until 2011. That year, URAN Publishing Service took the lead. This business unit of URAN, the Ukrainian research and academic networking association, which is a partner in the EU-funded EaPConnect project, has been supporting users such as Valentyna Lukianenko of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute every day by providing reliable access to virtual computing infrastructure.

Now Valentyna’s academic journal, and her university, are enjoying greater visibility and prestige.

Read more about the challenges Valentyna faced and the support she received in the latest In The Field blog.
