FLVC provides a number of services for electronic scholarly journals under our Florida Online Journals (Florida OJ) program. Using the Open Journal Systems (OJS) open source publishing software as the underlying system, we can help you:
Publish electronic journals from scratch with Florida OJ & OJS
If you need a publishing system for your journal, Florida OJ can provide a free platform and technical support. Using OJS, editors can have authors submit manuscripts, can edit the manuscripts, and can publish to the web.
Host electronic journals in Florida OJ
If you are already publishing through another system, you can still host with Florida OJ. OJS provides not only basic search and browse features for hosted journals, but indexing with the Directory of Open Access Journals, RSS feeds, automatic email notifications for users, and other features.
Provide access to licensed commercial journals no longer supported by the publisher
If you have back issues of commercial journals for which you need to continue to provide access, you can host those journals with Florida OJ as well. We can support a variety of types of access restrictions for these journals if necessary.
Hosting with Florida OJ gives your journal increased user access, well-developed and supported publishing software, security of data, and automatic integration with the Florida Digital Archive to preserve your electronic data. We encourage open access to all journals, but do support access restrictions if necessary.
If your institution is interested in publishing or hosting a journal with Florida Online Journals, please feel free to contact us at: email@example.com.
