OPEN JOURNAL SYSTEMS
Texas State University Libraries provides services and software that enable TXST faculty, staff, and students to publish online open-access journals. Through our membership in the Texas Digital Library consortium, journals are published using Open Journals System (OJS), an open-source editorial management and publishing system. OJS provides a professional online presence and can be used to manage some or all of the stages of the journal publishing process: submissions, peer review, the editorial process, online publishing, and indexing. Articles are licensed for reuse using a Creative Commons license.
OJS is a collaborative, open-source software project maintained by the Public Knowledge Project. It has a highly configurable system for editorial workflows with features including the following:
