ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Open Journal System is a FOSS tool that allows you to publish and manage peer-reviewed open access journals. There are over 10,000 OJS (Open Journal System) installations around the world and we are continuing to see strong growth internationally, with OJS being used for traditional journals, but also for reports, learning management systems, courses, monographs, and more.
OJS is a software for the management of peer-review journals, created by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). OJS was designed to facilitate the development of open access peer-reviewed publishing, providing the technical infrastructure not only for the online presentation of journal articles, but also an entire editorial management workflow, including article submission, multiple rounds of peer-review, and indexing.
EIFL-OA and EIFL-FOSS co-organised a Themed Week October 24 - 28, focusing on the OJS software and coinciding with Open Access Week 2011.
Among the activities was a free, online workshop and an open access wiki for Questions and Answers about OJS.
The guest speakers were:
- Kevin Stranack, Community Services and Learning Coordinator, Simon Fraser University Library and Public Knowledge Project;
- Hilton Gibson, Systems Administrator, JS Gericke Library, and Paulette Talliard, SUNScholar project, Library and Information Service, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa;
- Eleonora Dagienė, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University.
The workshop is supported by an titanpad.com/eifl-foss-OJS open access wiki for Questions and Answers about OJS.
