Book icon Publishing with IU Libraries

Open access journal publishing

The IU Libraries provide no-cost hosting and consultation services to IU researchers and organizations who would like to shift their journal to an open access format or who are interested in publishing their own open access journal. For the Open Journals program the Libraries provide start-up and migration consulting, copyright and intellectual property advice, multimedia content support, ISSN and DOI registration, and stats and metrics.

Office of Scholarly Publishing

Through the Office of Scholarly Publishing these services have expanded, still at no charge, for those campus OA journals whose operations are consistent with professionally published scholarly journals. Drawing upon IU Press expertise in production, copyediting, indexing, and marketing, the OA journals in the OSP program will have the option of receiving an array of expanded publishing services. These include worldwide promotion alongside IU Press scholarly journals; copyediting, design, and layout; indexing; print-on-demand and fulfillment; e-reader editions; and additional revenue through print and online advertising sales.
