Much scholarship today is disseminated electronically (hence “Digital Scholarship”), offering rich opportunities for global access, use, and impact, as well as new research methods and products. The fulfillment of this promise will be determined, however, by the choices researchers and scholars make today about where and how they publish.
The UIC Library supports open access journal publishing by providing an online journal publishing system called Open Journal Systems (OJS). Our OJS is called Journals@UIC.
Journals can be developed in this open access environment, or existing journals can be moved to this environment and become open access. The OJS software allows editors to manage the journal and its content from the author submission stage to publishing the content in an open access environment.
Digital UIC exists to support research, teaching, and learning at UIC by providing users with access to flexible web space and customizable platforms to showcase and disseminate their scholarship using open sources applications such as WordPress, Scalar, Omeka, and more.
