The University of Alberta Libraries uses the Open Journal Systems (OJS) publishing software to host open access journals and open access backfiles of journals that have ceased publication. Please contact your subject librarian if you are a member of the University of Alberta community (or if you are a Canadian fully open access journal / seeking to transition to a fully open access model) and are interested in using this no-fee service.
For more information, see the related Memorandum of Understanding and contact Amanda Wakaruk, Acting Digital Repository Services Librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss whether our service is the right match for your journal.
