Abstract: In the current publishing industry, all stakeholders are faced with problems ranging from copyright management, to piracy, to the lack of transparency of the actual number of sales and the unfair division of profit between the publisher and the author. In this paper, we propose an editorial platform for application in higher education based on Blockchain technology in order to eliminate the problems that publishers, writers, translators and readers currently deal with. The proposed platform aims to eliminate the prices and rules that publishers impose on authors, redefining their responsibilities so that they are only in charge of the printing and distribution of content. This proposal also allows to the royalties received by the author to increase by 50-90% of the value of the sale, a substantial increase compared to the 10-25% they receive in the current panorama. In this way, new writers and other lesser-known writers who produce content related to the field of education will have a greater opportunity to publish their content and be fairly rewarded. (More)
