The Japan Institutional Gateway is the world’s first dual language (English/Japanese) open research publishing venue founded and supported by the University of Tsukuba.

University of Fukui has signed up as an affiliate of F1000’s Japan Institutional Gateway (JIG), following the lead of the University of Tsukuba. This agreement enables researchers from the affiliated institution to publish on JIG: https://f1000research.com/gateways/japan-institutional-gateway. This new affiliate joins Saitama University, Tokai University, Tsukuba University of Technology, University of Toyama, and Utsunomiya University, all of whom affiliated in 2023.

JIG was launched with the support of the University of Tsukuba in August 2022, allowing researchers from across the university to publish rapidly and with full transparency. Research in all subject areas can be published on the Gateway, and researchers in humanities and social sciences can choose to publish their articles in Japanese or English, showcasing their work in a Scopus-indexed, international publishing venue in the language that best befits their work.

A founding principle of JIG is to increase the visibility of research written in Japanese across the globe. This principle is reflected in the University of Fukui’s long-standing strategy and programs that foster international collaboration and promote their students and research globally.

The Gateway combines the benefits of rapid publication (enabled by post-publication peer review) with mechanisms to assure quality and transparency; rigorous pre-publication checks, open peer review, archiving and indexing.

All outputs published on JIG have open licenses, ensuring free access, and maximizing the opportunity for use and re-use. This publishing model is also used on the customized publishing Platforms that F1000 provides for major global funders such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Wellcome, and the European Commission.

Rebecca Lawrence, F1000’s Managing Director, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome the University of Fukui as an affiliate to the growing Japan Institutional Gateway family of universities in Japan who are leading the way in providing their researchers with an open, indexed dual language publishing option that will promote their research to both Japanese and international audiences.

Prof Shin-ichiro Suye, Trustee, Vice President for Research, Industry-Academia Collaboration, Social Cooperation, and Diversity at University of Fukui, said:

Open science is a new style of disseminating research results, and I believe it has the potential to greatly expand the science community, which until now has been confined within specific groups. I hope that science and technology will further develop through fair and enthusiastic discussions in the newly formed community.”

F1000 are currently seeking to grow the JIG affiliation program, and we welcome expressions of interest from Japanese research institutions.
