OCUL-PKP Librarian, Publisher Webinar this July 31

July 29th, 2013 by  | No Comments

Are you considering hosting or managing a journal? Do you work with students who want to start one? Are you wondering about the time commitment, workload, and logistics of the process? This summer, the OCUL-PKP partnership group is hosting a webinar series entitled Librarian, Publisher. The series is designed for those at the early stages of developing their publishing support, or who simply wish to get a better understanding of the process.

In part two, join panelists Dale Askey (McMaster), Pat Moore (Carleton), and Andrea Kosavic (York) for a discussion of frequently asked questions about library publishing: what’s the time commitment? How do you develop a terms-of-use policy? How do you market what you’ve made? And who pays for it all??
Librarian, Publisher Part 2 – Wednesday, July 31 at 11 AM

Space is limited, so please consider arranging a group viewing. For log-in details, please RSVP to jacqueline@scholarsportal.info.

Info Dear friends: we are the small, international team behind the Public Knowledge Project’s software. We are about 12 to 20 people, depending on funded projects, responsible for maintaining and improving OJS, OMP, and OCS. In 2012, over 5000 journals published at least 10 articles using OJS, reaching nearly 200,000 articles in that year alone. We estimate that there are over 1.5 million articles published in OJS journals. All of our software is open source and we will never charge for its download and use. All of our community support, including the online help forums, documentation, and instructional videos are free for everyone. We mostly rely on donations, sponsorships, and research grants. We want to ask you to make sure that we can continue to improve our software and sustain your publishing activities. If our software and support are useful to you, then please take a minute to keep them free and continually improving. Thank you.
