Journal Hosting Service

Edinburgh University Library uses Open Journal Systems (OJS) to support the publication of academic and student-led Open Access journals.

The service provides online hosting and ongoing support, and it is offered free of charge to members of the University.  We also provide a hosting service to other universities and external organisations.
