journal contributionposted on 14.10.2019, 08:37 by Cheryl Hurkett
Open Journal Systems (OJS) is an open access, online manuscript management system developed by the Public Knowledge Project (https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/) that underpins the University of Leicester’s academic journal system. Initially released in 2001 OJS provides a complete and robust software solution that integrates and tracks all aspects of manuscript processing from the initial author paper submission, via dissemination of articles to peer reviewers, through to final online publication and indexing (Willinsky, 2005). This review will consider how OJS can be used to enhance teaching and learning through creating an authentic peer review process for students and will also offer some personal insights into the practicalities of using OJS from an Editor’s perspective.
