How do I Publish OA?
As a Researcher / Author
- Upload copies of your peer-reviewed articles to ERA: Education and Research Archive.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org for technical and copyright assistance.
- SHERPA/Romeo tells you what journals publish OA, with information on copyright.
- Open access journals are published for most academic disciplines. You can see a list of them at the Directory of Open Access Journals.
- Some Open Access journals charge article processing charges (APCs), with authors required to pay a fee to cover publishing costs. Wherever possible, the University of Alberta Library negotiates license agreements with publishers who will provide U of A authors with free OA publishing or discounts on APCs, as part of our ongoing subscriptions.
- Questions about open access publishing in relation to the library's licensed resources can be directed to librarians in the Collection Strategies Unit: email@example.com.
As a Journal Editor
- We host OA e-journals using the Open Journal Systems software. OJS is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research.
