Choose PeerJ to publish your research collection

by | Jul 3, 2013 | Collections, Conferences


Partnering with PeerJ to publish a PeerJ Collection is the perfect solution to maximise the impact and visibility of your conference, symposium or research project.


Choice: A variety of collection options are available:

  • Partner Collections – Discrete sets of related research papers proposed by partners and focussed on specific topics.
  • Conference Collections – Collections published in collaboration with a partner conference to contain research outputs from, or related to, specific meetings.
  • Special Issues – Calls for Papers, led by experts within their field, to bring together the latest high quality research on important topics.

Customisable: Each collection has its own attractive landing page, personalised to your project or conference. A large image showcases the Collection, and several paragraphs of text can be used to contextualise the content.

Cost-effective: Collections are free for organizers to set up, and PeerJ charges no additional fees to authors for collection submissions. See how our fees compare to other publishers.

Quality: Like all articles published by PeerJ journals, collection submissions undergo formal peer review, meaning authors enjoy our industry-leading customer service and submission platform and, if accepted, are published in our high-quality indexed journals.

Reach: Everything we publish is entirely Open Access which means it is freely available to be read and re-used by anyone without restriction. Additionally, all PeerJ articles display Article Level Metrics (including detailed usage referral data), so you can see the impact your collection is having.

Promotion: We create bespoke promotional material for all of our collections, and highlight these – as well as any associated events – across our various social media and marketing channels.


Scope: Published articles from across the PeerJ journals can be included in collections, giving unrivalled scope coverage across biological, medical, environmental, computer and chemical sciences.

Plan S Compliant: As a Gold Open Access publisher, you can rest assured that our journals are compliant with Plan S funder mandates.

Are you working on a project that could benefit from a PeerJ Collection – or simply have an idea that you would like to work with us to create –  let us know by filling in our collection proposal form, or by emailing us at  

All PeerJ articles will be peer-reviewed and an independent publication decision will be made by a PeerJ Academic Editor. Submitting to a PeerJ Collection does not guarantee the article will be published.
