Using the service
Interested in hosting your journal with the Library? We would be happy to discuss how we could help you set up a new journal or migrate an existing title.
Before you start
The information below can help you decide if this service is right for your title. Please contact the Scholarly Communications team for further information.
Is this the right service for your journal?
The service supports the publication of academic and student-led Open Access journals. It uses Open Journal Systems (OJS) and it is provided free of charge to all members of the University of Edinburgh. While we provide hosting and ongoing support, Editorial teams have complete editorial control and are responsible for all aspects of the publication process. Please read the page below for more details on what you can expect from the free journal hosting service:
Setting up a new journal
If you would like to launch a new Open Access journal or have any questions abou the service, please contact the Scholarly Communications team.
Migrating an existing title
If you have an existing journal, print or online, which you would like to move to our hosting platform, please contact the Scholarly Communications team. We will also consider hosting titles that have ceased publication.
Journals published by other universities or organisations
The free hosting service is not available for titles published by organisations with no University of Edinburgh affiliation. Other service models are available for unaffiliated organisations.
