Description of Service
Oregon State University and University of Oregon Libraries promote and assist open access journal publication through the use of open source technology. The two libraries jointly established a new Open Access Journal Publishing Service using the Public Knowledge Project's free, open source software, Open Journal Systems (OJS). OJS handles the full cycle of journal publishing from submission to archiving. The Open Access Journal Publishing Service:
- Increases the visibility of journal publications
- Avoids the fees and access restrictions associated with commercial publishers
- Reaches readers outside your discipline or without access to traditional research channels.
- Enables automated assignment of DOIs to articles.
For a full listing of services that we provide, see Open Access Journal Publishing Services at OSU and UO.
For OSU journals: Contact Michael Boock (Head of Center for Digital Scholarship and Services) if you are interested in starting an open access journal or moving an existing journal to the OJS system,
For UO journals: Contact J.Q. Johnson (Director, Scholarly Communications and Instructional Support) if you are interested in starting an open access journal or moving an existing journal to the OJS system.
One of us will consult with you and ask that you complete a Scholarly Journal Questionnaire.
