Abstract: Slides from a presentation on open access educational publishing via Open Journal Systems (OJS). Delivered virtually on October 22, 2014 as part of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) virtual conference, "Using the Web as an E-Content Distribution Platform: Challenges and Opportunities."
Academic libraries have traditionally purchased journals that hold content created by their researchers. With the growing push for open access, libraries now have opportunities to assist their faculty members in creating and providing scholarly content directly to users. One such endeavor is Open Journal Systems (OJS), a software system developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP), and created specifically to facilitate open access scholarly publishing.
In 2010, The UNC Greensboro University Libraries started providing support for faculty who wished to publish open access journals through OJS. The library currently hosts seven journals, with two more in development. Two librarians from UNCG will discuss their experience in implementing OJS, training faculty to use it, and issues and discoveries made along the way.
