Open access is not only about barrier-free access to research by readers, it’s also about barrier-free access by researchers to publishing their research. Barriers to researchers publishing can include high author payment charges (APCs), lack of support to write and publish in one’s native language or about one’s local context, and lack of access to research literature that is in one’s native language and relevant to one’s local context. A healthy, equitable, and open scholarly publishing landscape includes a diversity of researchers, content, and journals. 

The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) supports this diversity by developing and maintaining Open Journal Systems (OJS), a free and open source software application for publishing scholarly journals online. Having access to free publishing software reduces the expenses in publishing a journal and enables small, specialized journals and journals with minimal budgets and funding sources to publish.
