York University Libraries provide an electronic journal hosting service for York-affiliated journals. This service is called York Digital Journals (YDJ).
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. OJS differs from other web platforms as it is specially designed to manage articles through author submission, peer review, editing and publication. This online submission and tracking workflow simplifies the administrative aspects of the journal editorial process, allowing designated users to view the status of their article at any given time.
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.
To learn more about the service, visit the York Digital Journals resource guide.
