Having its deep-rooted academic publishing traditions, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University Press (VGTU Press) is one of the biggest and most advanced Lithuanian academic publishers. All of the study and research publications are peer-reviewed, copy-edited and published in both print and electronic versions. We publish around 100 study publications (textbooks and other study publications) per year which we prepare with great care to facilitate our students learn complicated subjects taught at university. The majority of the books are published in a traditional way. Aiming to facilitate the search for the necessary literature and comfort of reading, we were the first in Lithuania to launch an innovative e-books portal www.ebooks.vgtu.lt at the beginning of 2010. The textbooks published by VGTU Press have received very good evaluations from the Centre for Textbook Quality Assessment in Higher Education, the evidence of which are numerous certificates of appreciation.
VGTU press publishes 19 peer-reviewed research journals: 8 of them are of technological and natural sciences, 5 – social sciences, 5 – humanitarian sciences and 1 is interdisciplinary. All of the VGTU journals are indexed by ProQuest, EBSCO, GALE and IndexCopernicus; 13 of them by Scopus; and as many as 8 journals are indexed by Web of Science and other databases well-known to researchers and specialists.
Since 2011, 12 journals are co-published with Taylor and Francis, which is one of the best academic publishers in the world. VGTU journals get credit from their authors and readers for new e-systems launched in publishing, such as peer-review system ScholarOne Manuscript Central, journal management system CATS and a modern research journal publishing platform www.tandfonline.com. These systems will be launched for the remaining 3 journals in 2012.
In 2011, e-publishing system for research journals Open Journal Systems was launched in publishing of 6 VGTU journals, which also includes the systems for electronic submission of manuscripts, peer-review and management.
