Kriterium – a quality mark for Swedish academic books
Kriterium is a Swedish portal for the review and publication of high-quality, peer-reviewed academic books, in accordance with the accepted principles of open access.
To obtain the Kriterium stamp of approval, all publications will undergo a stringent peer-review according to set guidelines. As well as being available in print, all books with the Kriterium mark will be freely available online on open access. Kriterium is a collaborative venture between the universities of Gothenburg, Lund, and Uppsala, with representatives from the Swedish Research Council, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, the National Library of Sweden, the publishers Nordic Academic Press and Makadam, and the three universities’ publications series.
Thanks to its peer review process, Kriterium is included in the Norwegian list.
