Since the publication of its first issue in the summer of 2015, the Freedom of Thought Journal has entrusted the publication of its digital and printed versions to the Iran Academia University Press (IAUP), a collaboration that has continued regularly. At that time, IAUP, as a small publisher, had started working based on the need for Iran Academia to publish its scientific products in the absence of a Persian-language academic publication in the Diaspora. Over the years, the IAUP has gradually attempted to raise its standards to comply with universal professional standards.
Over the past year, after examining some of the obstacles and problems of publishing scientific research in Persian, IAUP has established a qualitative change in Persian scientific journals’ publishing, hosting, management, workflow, standards, and indexing processes. These developments will be exploited in the publications of 2022, starting with the 11th issue of the FTJ. Fortunately, this development coincided with the formation of the new editorial board for the FTJ, and the supervision of Dr. Banuazizi, the FTJ’s chief of editors, has been productive in implementing all essential changes.
