Before a new journal is created, the requestor or journal editor must:
- Agree to the Memorandum of Understanding (content of the agreement is found under Policies of Journals@UIC)
- Journals will usually be created within 48 hours. The time for setup and customization may be longer if fee-based services were contracted.
Following the creation of a journal, the journal editor(s) must:
