New Article: "Creating a library service for scholarly open access journals"
A great example of a library using OJS to offer wider services to their users. From the introduction:
In 2008 the University of Bergen Library started a project for supporting independent open access journals at the University of Bergen.1 The service was aimed at already existing journals that wanted to convert to an open access model, and to research groups that planned to establish a new electronic journal with open content.
This paper will focus on the experience gained from serving the scholarly open access journals at the University of Bergen Library – first and foremost the challenges connected with establishing such a service. There is also the question as to what degree libraries should offer this kind of publishing service: should academic libraries act as publishers of scholarly journals?
