MTSU - Walker Library - Open Access Journals


Walker Library offers free journal hosting services to members of the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) community. All of the journals we service are digital and open access—free to read online. Walker Library established this journal hosting program to meet the needs and support the mission, values and vision of the university.

Journal Hosting Options:

Scholarly journals vary by size, content and mission. Walker Library provides journal editors with the technical infrastructure to publish journals on their choice of two platforms:

1. JEWLScholar, MTSU’s institutional repository, will make journals visible to a global audience and assures long-term preservation. This option is appropriate for journals that do not need editorial software for workflow procedures, but want permanent, open access and dependable archiving of the journal content.

2. Open Access Journals, Journals@MTSU uses the Open Journal System (OJS) software to not only make journals visible while assuring its preservation, but also supports the entire editorial management workflow (article submission, peer-review, indexing). This option is for journals that have a stable editorial team and usually publish scholarly content on a regular basis. To learn more about open access journal publishing or to sign up, please visit our guide and fill out the form.
