Journal hosting service

Research and Innovation Services run a journal hosting service. Researchers can create a new academic journal incorporating the complete review and publishing workflow.


The journal hosting service offers support for academic staff and students who are interested in setting up their own online journals. The service uses Open Journal Systems (OJS) to support the publishing process, including submission, peer-review and online publication. The Library will act as 'electronic distributor' for the journal and will provide a secure archive for the content. The Journal Manager and Editorial staff will be the publishers of the journal and will be responsible for management and administration, and for journal content.

Are there limits to the service?

The Journal Hosting Team can create and train you in managing your journal. They will not manage the journal on behalf of a researcher. They also can not offer bespoke interface design.
