How can Oriol Solé help you?

His work helps you enjoy the articles published in the UOC's scholarly journals, which have become indispensable channels for communicating the University's expertise.

Oriol is publishing coordinator for the academic journals IDP. Journal of Internet, Law and Politics and Artnodes.

Publication of a new article is just the tip of the iceberg in the editorial process: it is the culmination of a long planning process to manage and organize –in case of scientific journals, control of peer reviews–, in order to guarantee the highest quality of the contents.

He's in charge of the plagiarism detection service for scientific texts and handles open-access publication of the UOC's doctoral theses.
