Berlin Universities Publishing attaches great importance to the content-related, formal, technical and ethical quality assurance of the published content. Therefore, BerlinUP takes measures to ensure good scientific practice, which are based on established standards and recommendations for scientific publishing.
BerlinUP Journals refers in particular to the following recommendations:
- Quality Checklist for Open Access Journals (open-access.network)

- Guide to Applying of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
BerlinUP Journals ensures compliance with technical quality assurance and supports journal editors in implementing further quality assurance measures.
The editors of a journal at BerlinUP Journals are responsible for the content-related, formal and ethical quality assurance of the published articles in accordance with the publisher's specifications. This includes, in particular, the organisation of the peer review process by recognised experts and the decision as to which contributions meet the quality requirements of the journal for which they are responsible for publication.
The entire quality assurance process is regularly evaluated and improved.
