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. 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.
