E-journal hosting offered

Posted in Announcements, Services Tagged with:

keyboardLSU Libraries recently implemented an online journal hosting platform and now offers support for journal publishing to LSU faculty members who edit journals.

LSU Digital Commons includes is a journal management and publishing system. For each hosted journal, the platform offers a website, a search interface, a graphic identity, reader notifications, online submissions, online editorial workflow, exporting tools, analytics, and more.

The Libraries will assist LSU faculty members who are establishing journals or wish to migrate existing ejournals. Hosting a journal on the LSU Libraries OJS platform will support wider dissemination of scholarship and advance the journal and the university.

Interested LSU faculty members should contact Sigrid Kelsey, Director of Communications and Publications, at or at 578-2720 for information.

Editor’s Note: This article was updated in 2017 to reflect a change in the journal platform.
