Publish Your Own Journal with Open Journal Systems (OJS)

This workshop will introduce students to Open Journal Systems, a comprehensive journal management and publishing platform. OJS is open source software developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research. It is used by many open access presses as well as university libraries for their faculty and student-run journals – the Faculty of Information's own iJournal is published on the UTL’s instance of OJS.

Through interactive workshop activities, students will plan a new journal and discuss all aspects of a successful publication. They will then set up the journal on a demo OJS 3 instance and go through the editorial workflow from submission through to publication of an issue. By the end of the workshop, students will be able to navigate OJS front-end and back-end, set up a journal’s website and workflow and perform editorial tasks.

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.  Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session.  A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
