AAU Open Access Journals

The VBN Team is ready to assist academic staff, if you want to publish your own Open Access journals at our Open Journal System (OJS) server. AAU online journals that are accessible via OJS are all Open Access and peer-reviewed.

What is OJS?

OJS is an Open Source publishing platform that gives the individual journal editors a possibility for editing and publishing online journals in one single workflow. Depending on which parts of the system you want to work with, there are a number of different settings you can use. You may also choose to use the publishing part only, and thereby use OJS as a platform for displaying your research. Or you may choose to use all the steps in the process, thereby gathering the entire editorial communication, adaptation, peer-reviewing process, and publishing in one workflow. Read more about OJS.


Assistance and support

The editors handle the daily operations of the journals. The VBN Team handles instruction in using the system and provides overall support. In addition, we handle practical matters in connection with publication of the first issue.

As OJS is Open Source, there is an OJS forum where users can get further support. Likewise, there are a number of videos on using OJS that you might find helpful.
