Kriterium is a portal for the review and publication of high-quality academic books. Kriterium is a new quality mark for Swedish academic books. To obtain the Kriterium stamp of approval, all publications will undergo a stringent peer review according to set guidelines. All books with the Kriterium mark will be freely available online on open access.
Kriterium is a collaborative venture between Swedish universities and Swedish publishers, with representatives from the Swedish Research Council, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, the National Library of Sweden.
The Kriterium portal is open to academic research from all institutions of higher education and independent scholars. Kriterium is primarily intended for research and researchers with a Swedish connection, and will thus uphold the tradition of academic books published in Sweden.
