Further information about the journal hosting service

Investigation of OJS as software to provide a journal hosting service began in the Library in 2010 and started as a pilot project. The service is now staffed by members of the Research & Innovation Services Open Access team. We have 10 journals which are currently being hosted on our OJS platform, and another hosted externally. The journals are a mix of student and staff-led projects; new titles and transfers of existing print titles to electronic delivery; and have a range of publication schedules. They have provided good case studies to inform future projects and development of the service.

In addition we support an externally-hosted journal: Contemporary Voices: St Andrews Journal of International Relations
