Our Backlist

UJ Press purchased the SunBonani Media backlist of 98 scholarly titles in December 2021. These titles are now sold and distributed through UJ Press. UJ Press took the following measures to increase the reach, impact and citation of these titles:

  • All titles’ metadata were loaded onto KovsieScholar and OA titles were loaded in full.
  • All titles were loaded onto the UJ Press Open Monograph Press.
  • Rich title metadata including chapter level information, ORCIDs and DOIs were loaded onto the following platforms in ONIX 3.0 format:
    • Nielsen Bookdata
    • EBSCO Host
    • ProQuest
    • JSTOR
    • Optimi
    • Google Books
    • Amazon (for availability in print and electronic format internationally)
    • Gardners
    • Vital Source
  • A selected number of titles were made available in OA format and loaded onto the DOAB, OAPEN and Scopus
  • Individual chapters of edited volumes were made available by generating chapter PDFs, issuing DOIs and loading them onto the UJ Press OMP. This enables individual metrics for each chapter and will ease the citation process for these chapters.
