EIFL has produced this checklist to support editors and publishers of open access journals using OJS software.  OJS is created by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP), which is a multi-university initiative developing free and open source software to improve the quality and reach of scholarly publishing.

The checklist provides good practice recommendations on using OJS software for journal editing and publishing. It includes an overview of OJS 3, which is the newest version of OJS, and tips on software plugins, journal procedures and policies, system security and content, usage statistics, and suggestions for improving content visibility and discoverability. It also includes a section about indexing your journals in DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) and recommendations for further reading. 

If you have any comments and suggestions regarding the checklist, please email them to EIFL Open Access Programme Manager Iryna Kuchma, iryna.kuchma@eifl.net
