The Cultural and Intellectual History Society (CIHIS) is a tight-knit group of researchers created out of the need to reflect on the use, the construction and the practices of historical discourse. Strongly devoted to a multidisciplinary perspective, the CIHIS was conceived as a space of experimentation and reflection on how we do history and what we do as historians, that is on the reflection of the very process of history making. As a community of equals, the CIHIS strives to generate original ideas and new venues of research. It is a koinon that brings us out of our academic solace, breaching the gap between intellectual inquiry and political engagement. We aim at creating a forum of communication in the humanities and promoting the study of themes and phenomena that cannot be approached solely from within one discipline.

The National Documentation Centre (www.ekt.gr) is a national infrastructure in the National Hellenic Research Foundation. Since 1980, it actively engages in the collection, organization and dissemination of scientific and technological information in Greece and internationally. EKT’s strategic priority is the aggregation, organized online dissemination and preservation of quality-assured scholarly and educational content in a single research infrastructure.

EKT’s vision is “Access to Knowledge”.  To this end it implements Open Access policies in research, supports the transfer and dissemination of scientific knowledge, collaborates with research, education and cultural institutions for the aggregation, organization and dissemination of digital content and provides innovative services in scientific information.

EKT provides reliable ePublishing services as part of its scholarly content aggregation and dissemination activities. Its integrated online ePublishing environment is developed with open-source interoperable technology. This affords the incorporation of EKT’s infrastructures into the continuously developing international infrastructure environment.

EKT’s ePublishing services (http://www.ekt.gr/epublishing) are directed to public and extended public institution publishers of accredited scholarly journals. They include, most significantly, the organization, documentation and organized dissemination of metadata and content of scholarly journals, the training and consulting services on issues such as intellectual property, the standardization of editorial processes according to internationally accepted standards, the inclusion of content and metadata in international content indexers and harvesters via interoperable systems.
