This project will investigate different publishing models and options for OJS 3.0, as well as improvements to the current publishing options. The focus will be on how to best support continous publication, multi-journal publishers (and megajournals), and preprints.

Key Components

  • Mega-Journals (and Multi-Journals): allow a single journal to run as a mega-journal; or combine multiple journals on the same platform into a single journal "face".
  • Continuous Publication: improve publication options for journals that publish articles as they are completed, rather than purely as discrete issues
  • Publishing Workflow: improve the review and editing processes, by focusing on options to streamline and provide flexibility; also include article processing fees (APFs)
  • Preprints: improve options for offering pre-print article content (that is, access to article manuscripts after they are accepted, but before they are fully published)
