Euclid's basic hosting services


Project Euclid offers hosting services for journal publishers who do not require additional sales support but still want to take advantage of all the advanced features available through the Euclid infrastructure. See partner publishers who have chosen this option

To learn more about the variety of services offered by Project Euclid to publishers, please contact us.

Open Access

80% of the scholarship hosted on Project Euclid is freely available to readers everywhere. Many subscription-based journals on the platform make their issues open access three to five years after publication, and many other titles are entirely open.

Project Euclid supports the goal of disseminating scholarly literature as widely as possible. By partnering with Project Euclid, publishers of open access journals and monographs benefit from the full range of features on Euclid's robust platform. Euclid connects open access titles with a global readership and works closely with indexers and discovery services to make publications easy to find, read, and cite.

Project Euclid is entirely self-supported, and we charge annual hosting fees to help sustain the operation and sustain our mission. We recognize, however, that the circumstances of each publisher are unique. We will consider discounted service fees for open access titles. Please contact us to learn more.

COUNTER-compliant usage statistics for libraries

Project Euclid provides all institutional subscribers with COUNTER-compliant usage statistics delivered by Scholarly iQ

Visit our Library usage statistics page for more information.

DOI registration via CrossRef

Project Euclid, as a sponsoring member of CrossRef, can acquire individual DOI prefixes for publishers and automatically deposit DOIs with CrossRef on behalf of its publishers. DOIs are displayed on article abstract pages.

Cross linking to MathSciNet (Math Reviews) and zbMATH

Project Euclid automatically builds links from articles to the indexing and reviewing services MathSciNet (Math Reviews) and zbMATH. For any article in Project Euclid without such links, the system performs regular, automated "lookups." If a match is discovered, the link is made available on the Euclid abstract page. In addition, Project Euclid works closely with both these services to ensure that they include links back to Euclid.

Email alerts

Users can sign up to receive several types of email alerts:

  • Content alerts for notifications when new issues or eBooks are published
  • Errata alerts for updates to published articles or papers
  • Search alerts for newly published content matching specific search criteria

Reference linking

Using automated processes, Project Euclid extracts and parses article reference sections, performs article lookups in remote databases, and provides outbound links when available. The results are displayed in an article's "References" tab.


Publishers may sell individual articles or book chapters to non-subscribers on a pay-per-view (PPV) basis. When available, a user clicks the "Buy Article" button, provides credit card information via a secure payment portal, and receives access to download the article once payment is confirmed. PPV prices are determined by the publisher.


Project Euclid facilitates print-on-demand (POD) options for select content through multiple outside vendors. This service is available for individual monographs and journal issues, and it is the only way to purchase print through Project Euclid. Please contact us if you are interested in offering this service.

Flexible open access settings

Publishers can elect to set automatic open access windows as well as open up individual journal issues or articles as needed.

Dynamic publication home pages

Each title's landing page displays a dynamic list of the top downloaded articles or chapters. Under Scope & Details, publishers can highlight information of interest to readers and authors, including  for example, special notices, citation statistics, impact factors, indexes, scope statements, or calls for papers.

Publisher home pages

In addition to their publication sites, every publisher has a home page providing details about the organization, a link to its website, and a list of its publications on Euclid. Additional notices can be posted to this page.

Ahead-of-print and online first publication

Project Euclid supports a variety of advance publication options, including:

  • listing titles of accepted papers
  • posting forthcoming papers in their accepted or final form ahead of print publication
  • continuous publication of growing issues

Special issue titles

Themed issues can be displayed with special titles on table of contents pages. Notices of special issues can also be displayed on the publication's landing page.

Support for attractive math on the web, via MathJax and MathML

Project Euclid has implemented MathJax across our entire site, and supports MathML as well. This means that math expressions will be attractively displayed when they appear on our web pages. Visit our MathJax page for more information.

Rich metadata

Our article- and chapter-level metadata can capture and display detailed (optional) publication information, including:

  • dates publication was received, revised, and accepted
  • notes for acknowledging funding sources or collaborators
  • rights and licensing terms
  • author affiliations

Support for supplemental materials

Publishers may provide supplemental materials (charts, figures, data sets, etc.) to those users with access to the article full text.

Forward and backward linking, article cross references

Articles can be linked to later corrections (forward linking), and the correction to its original article (backward linking). Cross references ("see also" links) to other articles or chapters, in Euclid or not, can be included.

Support for multilingual article data

Project Euclid supports the capture and display of multilingual descriptive metadata.
