Publishing Hosting Services

Journal Hosting

Libraries and Cultural Resources supports open access and subscription based journals through our journal hosting service. We provide web hosting for journals through the Open Journal Systems (OJS), developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). This service is open to any peer-reviewed journals whose editor(s)-in-chief is affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution.

OJS supports every stage of the refereed publishing process from submissions and peer review through to online publication. Our hosting service includes:

  • OJS software setup, updates and maintenance
  • Preservation of journal content through PKP PLN
  • Basic software training
  • Assistance to journal managers with journal and content management
