What is Open Journal Systems?
Open Journal Systems is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research. It is an Open Access journal platform that works to disseminate and preserve scholarly research content. Through its management systems, its finely grained indexing of research and the context it provides for research, OJS seeks to improve both the scholarly and public quality of refereed research. Using search, archiving and access systems, MSU has set up a locally hosted and maintained version of Open Journal Systems to better serve IJS and increase its reach to people of the intermountain region and beyond.
IJS Partners with Open Journal systems!
IJS allows Open Journal Systems to make its publications widely available with little effort, and provides benefits that may not be available on IJS’s own website, such as: enhanced discoverability through Google Scholar, OAIster, and various repositories of scholarly material; a permanent and persistent web address for IJS so that it may be reliably cited over time; and managed archival services for IJS’s files. Both IJS and Open Journal Systems use Open Access, which is a worldwide movement to enable journals and authors to publish material in a way that ensures free access for current and future publications to the general public.
