    Open Scholarship Journals: New Journal Publishing Platform

    Posted by Emily Stenberg on 2022-04-26

The Digital Library Program Services (DLPS) unit has relaunched its university journal publishing program as Open Scholarship Journals in an open-source scholarly publishing platform called Janeway. This refresh aligns with Washington University Libraries’ open access values and provides flexible workflows for managing submissions, editorial and peer review, copyediting, production, and publication.

DLPS is available to provide publishing support for journals developed by members of the university community. This support includes advising on journal development, free hosting, platform training, assigning persistent identifiers like DOIs, and consulting on copyright and licensing through the Scholarly Communications unit. Eligible journals must be scholarly, educational, and/or related to the university’s mission; be open access and not charge author fees; and have an editor-in-chief or editor at Washington University. Student journals need to be supported by an active faculty or staff advisor.
