York Digital Journals


York University Libraries provide an electronic journal hosting service for York-affiliated journals. This service is called York Digital Journals (YDJ). To learn more about the service, visit the York Digital Journals resource guide.

York University uses Open Journal Systems (OJS), an open source software platform developed by the Public Knowledge Project which is now in use by over 7,500 journals worldwide..

The YDJ team is happy to work with York community members to create new journals or migrate existing journals to an online environment. The libraries can provide hosting space, training documentation and troubleshooting help with the OJS software, as well as advice on dissemination and exposure.
