ARPHA offers a choice of two interconnected but independently functioning journal publishing workflows:

ARPHA-DOC: Document-based submission, peer-review and publication workflow.
ARPHA-XML: Entirely XML-based collaborative authoring, peer-review and publication workflow.


ARPHA provides journals with a one-stop, end-to-end, publishing solution, from submission to publication and distribution, along with a set of human-provided services to choose from. Journal owners, managing and technical editors will benefit from not having to go through multiple platforms and service providers. The journal management is supported by several key services, among the other features offered by ARPHA:

  • Highly automated manuscript flow control system
  • Due date control & reminders
  • Controlling staff’s roles and rights
  • CrossRef DOIs assignment and management
  • Automated indexing and archiving
  • Journal management statistics
  • Flexible publishing models allow customisation of workflow and revenue models
  • User manual, trainings and ongoing customer support

Authors and readers will benefit from a new level of visibility and interaction with the published content, among the perks being:

  • Both human- (semantically enhanced HTML and PDF) and machine-readable (semantically tagged XML) versions of the articles  
  • Easy navigation and quick-access tabs for tables and figures  
  • Sub-article level metrics for figures and tables 
  • Altmetric and Dimensions usage stats 
  • Post-publication comments, annotations and review functionality 
  • On-publication dissemination and archiving across leading platforms

Why choose ARPHA?


New journals

Newly established journals can have their logo, branding identity, website design and infrastructure setup developed through ARPHA. While enjoying the perks of an end-to-end workflow and enhanced open access publishing, they will also be able to minimise risks by choosing to pay only for what they have published.
