Alec Smecher and James MacGregor will be teaching a weeklong course for the Digital Humanities Summer Institute
, at the University of Victoria, from May 26-30 2008.
The course is titled "Online Journal Publishing Using PKP's Open Journals System (OJS)". Participants will be instructed in all aspects of the installation, configuration, customization, and operation of OJS software, including a technical overview of the PKP software suite.
By the end of the week-long session, participants will have created a fully operational OJS instance and/or become familiarized with writing OJS code plug-ins.
Journal teams consisting of editorial, management, and technical staff are especially encouraged to register for this session as there will be opportunities for specialized instruction in each of these areas.
