Open Access and Scholarly Communications: Journal Hosting

Initiatives from Memorial Libraries that support research, teaching & learning in the digital world.

Electronic Journal Hosting

Memorial University Libraries are supporting faculty and student journal publishing with our electronic journal hosting service. The Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform provides a full suite of services for creating and hosting on-line journals, including mechanisms for article submission, peer review workflow, journal layout, reader access, and long-term archiving.

All of the journals hosted on our platform are Open Access publications that use Creative Commons licensing. This means that authors retain the right to re-use and share their work as they see fit. Your publication will be freely available online, and will be easy to discover through major search engines like Google. Please contact Eden Kinzel with questions about our journal service.
