Journal Hosting Service

Our Approach

Supported by the Library, Queen's Journal Hosting Service provides an immediate and efficient publication facility for Queen’s faculty and students who wish to publish an online journal, series or proceedings publication.    

The Library will act as 'online distributor' for your journal and will provide secure storage and software for the content.  We will support you and your team in the set-up and ongoing maintenance of your journal, hosted on Open Journal Systems (OJS), and also facilitate indexing and dissemination in Google Scholar, Google or other discipline-specific databases of choice.
