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.

Design Samples

The look and feel of an OJS-based website can be customized by editing one or more stylesheets.

While fairly complex designs are possible, simpler design will be easier for you and your editorial team to maintain.

Help with CSS and HTML

Custom Style Sheets (CSS) are used to control the colour, typography, and layout of webpages.

Image Editing

Occasionally you may want to re-size or crop an image. When altering an image, make a backup copy of the original in case you need to start over.

Most operating systems include one or more image editing tools.
