Topic Details


Using Open Journal System (OJS), faculty at Texas State University can set up and publish an online peer reviewed journal (or migrate an existing journal)at no cost. OJS helps with every stage of peer-reviewed publishing, handling online submissions from authors, managing the peer-review process, publishing issues online, and indexing content.

This full day course is designed for faculty journal editors and their assistants. Participants will learn how to:

•Customize submission requirements, the peer review process, and the journal’s appearance
•Perform all journal management tasks online
•Set up a subscription-based journal (if desired) with delayed open access options
•Provide comprehensive indexing of content
•Use OJS e-mail notification and commenting tools

This is hands on training and participants will work with Texas Digital library staff to see how the system works, set up a journal, and ask any questions.

OJS is brought to you by the university’s membership in the Texas Digital Library consortium. Your electronic journals also will become part of the TDL Electronic Press and are indexed by open-access harvesters so that all content is widely available online.
