The National Documentation Center (EKT) is pleased to announce the online edition of four  e-journals as a result of  its e Publishing activities. "Deltion", "The Gleaner", "Mnimon" and "Makedonika" are peer reviewed scientific journals with  a long  history  in the Greek scientific realm and significant international impact. With their decision to publish part of their valuable scientific material online, they enrich digital content available in Greek language in both qualitative and quantitative terms.

The current research environment is being decisively shaped by developments in scholarly communication, new processes and practices  in academic editing and distribution of research results. The National Documentation Center (EKT) participates actively  to shape academic activity and scholarly communication in Greece by developing e infrastructures and providing publishing services which promote the online distribution of digital content and its preservation while enhancing open access in scientific production.

In this framework, EKT has worked together with the Christian Archaeological Society (ChAE), the Greek Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (OMED), the Society for the Study of Modern Hellenism and  the Society for Macedonian Studies edits to create the online editions of Deltion, The Gleaner, Mnimon and Makedonika respectively.

As a result of EKT's strategic partnership with the above publishing bodies, internet users worlwide can now access more than 1000 articles produced by  Greek and foreign authors. EKT has digitized hundrends of volumes extracted from the journals' rich archives and distributes this digital content  through efficient e Infrastuctures.

Not only EKT has provided electronic infrastructures, interoperable with worlwide indexing services but also provided high quality of consultation services for upgrading and stadartization of publishing procedures (e.g publishing guidelines, reviews, copyright administration etc) which ensure that high quality international stadarts and procedures were followed.

EKT's list of e Publications is now accessible through NISRT's webpage ( where users have access to the full text of more than 1.7000 Greek papers indexed in major indexing services such as the Directory of Open Access Journals,  ISI,  Scopus and Google Scholar.

The journals'  electronic editions were completed within the project "National Information System for Research & Technology/Social Networks-User Generated Content" (Project ID 296115). The project is implemented by the National Documentation Centre (EKT) within the Operational Programme "Digital Convergence" (NSFR), which is co-funded by Greece and the European Union-European Regional Development Fund.
