Publish in Student Journals @ McMaster
Since 2006, the McMaster University Library has supported the publication of faculty and student journals.
In 2014, the Library decided to move this publication activity from a U.S.-based vendor to its own data centre. The migration to Open Journal Systems--a well known journal publication suite developed by the Public Knowledge Project with Canadian funding and now guided by Simon Fraser University--opens up many new possibilities for publishing journals that adapt as publication standards and practices evolve. It also ensures that the publications are based on a sustainable and scalable model that the Library can support decades into the future.
Our primary task is to facilitate journal publication for faculty and students at McMaster University, but the nature of scholarly publishing entails supporting scholars well beyond our campus as well. We welcome the participation of scholars from around the world in the journals we host.
