Starting an OA journal

Put it on!
The University Library runs a server with the publishing system Open Journal Systems (OJS). Editorial staff at Lund University are welcome to use the system for OA publishing of existing, or recently started, publications. The University Library offers – free of charge – the server space and system, start-up support and some technical support.

The OJS system, a free software (GPL) application developed by the Public Knowledge Project, manages the entire publication process, from submission of manuscripts and peer reviews to full text publishing and archiving. Metadata management increases the online findability of the journal articles.
