The recent renewals of co-publishing agreements for D&D, Digithum and BiD mean that the UOC will continue partnering with other organizations in the production and dissemination of knowledge.

The UOC has bolstered its cooperation with organizations that co-publish the academic journals Dictatorships and Democracies, Digithum and BiD: Textos universitaris de biblioteconomia i documentació. With this renewal of the agreements, the signatories continue with their undertaking to share resources and efforts in publishing and disseminating research.

  • Since 2013, the Fundació Carles Pi i Sunyer has been one of the co-publishers of the journal Dictatorships and Democracies. The foundation was established in 1986 and is a centre for the analysis of and research into local government and public administration policy issues.
  • Digithum is one of the UOC's pioneering journals and has, for nine years now, been co-published with Colombia's University of Antioquia, thereby boosting its globalization strategy.
  • Throughout its 22-year history, the journal BiD, has specialized in information and documentation. The UOC became one of its co-publishers in 2013, alongside the University of Barcelona.

For its part, the journal ETHE is currently co-published by four universities from around the world: the UOC, the University of Los Andes (Colombia), Dublin City University (Ireland) and Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania).

The UOC also co-publishes and is a member of the editorial board of the journalInternet Policy Review. Furthermore, Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) director David Megías sits on its managing board. To the great satisfaction of all concerned, the two organizations have agreed to extend the co-publishing agreement until 2025.

In 2020, the journal Artnodes also established a partnership agreement with Leonardo (The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology), a think tank associated with MIT, for the co-publishing and promotion of a special issue: «AI, Arts & Design: Questioning Learning Machines», with guest editors Ruth West, the artist-scientist, and Andrés Burbano, artist and university professor.
