Journals@UIC (Journals@University of Illinois at Chicago): Getting Started

How do I get my journal hosted on Journals@UIC?

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:

  • Attend an instructional session on using Journals@UIC with the Journals@UIC administrator.  This will last one to two hours. Please invite all the appropriate individuals to attend. An online meeting room can be used to accommodate remote attendance.
  • Configure the journal and begin steps to implement its use.  The library reserves the right to delete a journal if no action to configure or implement a journal occurs within six months of creation.

Other things you may want to do before you start to use Journals@UIC (or as you considering using it) include:
