Start an OA journal

Publish at Open Journals Lund University

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 publishing existing or recently started, publications. The University Library offers server space and system, start-up support, and some technical support, all free of charge.

The OJS system, a free software 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 possibility to find the journal articles online.
