York-based Initiatives

York Digital Journals (YDJ)
York University Libraries (YUL) are helping faculty host journals electronically using Open Journal Systems software (OJS).

OJS software is easy to learn and training and support is provided by YUL. The libraries are happy to work with faculty to create new journals or migrate existing journals into an online environment.
