Online Guide to Open Access Journals Publishing Launches
February 2010, Stockholm & Lund: Co-Action Publishing and Lund University Libraries Main Office are pleased to announce the launch of the Online Guide to Open Access Journals Publishing at http://www.doaj.org/bpguide.
The online guide is directed to small independent teams and provides practical information on planning, setting up, launching, publishing and managing an open access scholarly journal. Users can take advantage of additional resources in the form of links to related information, samples of applied practices and downloadable tools that can be adapted. The guide seeks to be interactive, allowing users to share their own best practices, tips and suggestions through a comment field.
Although the guide contains some information that is specific to the Nordic
region, most of its content can be applied internationally. Development
of the Online Guide to Open Access Journals Publishing was generously supported by the Swedish National Library and the technical solution was supported by Nordbib.
Questions about the guide can be directed to Caroline.Sutton@co-action.net
