OJS and Hosting Online Journals

The Library provides infrastructure for the management and publication of online journals. Our priority is to support campus partners in the publication of peer-reviewed open access journals. Such journals provide free unrestricted availability to scholarly research on the public internet. Users are generally permitted to read, download, copy, or distribute as long as the materials and authors are properly acknowledged and cited. Open access publishing has proven to be an effective and timely method for sharing work.

The University of Regina uses OJS, or Open Journal Systems, a comprehensive journal management and publication tool developed by the Public Knowledge Project, a partnership between Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia.

Our services include initial consultation on needs and requirements, set up on OJS, hosting, and ongoing support of the software. Please be aware that the Library supports the technical aspects around the OJS software and does not provide advice nor assistance on the mechanics of the journal itself. Repository services are also available via our institutional repository, oURspace.

Currently the Library hosts in-Education, which explores ideas in teacher education as well as broader issues and discussions in the education field.

Interested campus partners are considered and approved by the Library Leadership Team. To initiate this process, please contact Christina Winter, Copyright and Scholarly Communications Librarian.
