ST-OPEN(ing) to students of SEA-EU universities – an opportunity for the Alliance

“ST-OPEN, the overlay+ journal of the University of Split [1], has been open to the work of international students and researchers since its first issue published in 2020. As the University of Split is part of the European University of the Seas (SEA-EU) Alliance, opening and promoting ST-OPEN to all students from SEA-EU is a logical step, fully in line with the commitment to share educational and research resources among the Alliance partners [2]. In this editorial, I will discuss the significant benefits this could bring to our students, researchers and society, from the perspective of the current state and plans of the SEA-EU Alliance.”
