Publishing with Open Journal Systems (OJS)

This guide provides information about how to set up and manage a journal using the Open Journal Systems software hosted by Dalhousie Libraries.

First Steps

You need to create the content that will appear on the journal's About Page and to define review policies and procedures.

Your site will come pre-populated with form letters you can use in managing the review process. You can modify those letters to suit your needs. 

Pro-tip: The help text on OJS pages can be dense and, at times, overwhelming. Persevere: the answer is usually there or in the extended documentation.
