"UBC Library currently hosts 30 active open access journals by providing server space, support, and access to Open Journal Systems (OJS), a popular open source software used for managing and publishing scholarly journals. OJS was created by the Public Knowledge Project, (PKP) a not-for-profit multi-university initiative in which UBC Library is a partner and major contributor, and is currently used by more than 25,000 journals worldwide.

The library’s hosted journals include a mix of student and faculty publications, like CJUR, which switched to using OJS one year after the journal’s inception. The CJUR team wanted to streamline their submission and editorial process and enhance the quality and reach of their publications, says Amanian, who notes that UBC Library has been very helpful in their set-up and usage of the platform and receptive to feedback."
