ABOUT THE RESOURCE
In this LIBSENSE webinar (2 hours) hosted by EIFL, Jill Claassen, section manager of scholarly communication and research at University of Cape Town (UCT) Libraries, and Lena Nyahodza, the scholarly communication and publishing librarian at UCT, talk about library open access publishing and advancing African collection development.
They discuss guidelines for establishing a scholarly journal and journal management, including the benefits of using the Open Journal Systems (OJS) open source software application for managing and publishing scholarly journals. They speak about configuration of OJS 3 installation and demonstrate the management role (-OJS navigation interface/dashboard, journal and website settings); workflow settings (configuration of the editorial section), and distribution settings (visibility of the journal).
In the second part of the webinar (in French) that starts from the 42nd minute, Bessem Aamira, Ingénieur en Informatique, Centre National Universitaire de Documentation Scientifique et Technique (CNUDST), shares CNUDST experiences of using OJS, presents OJS 3 and how it is different from the previous OJS versions, explains how to set it up and also provides a live demo of using OJS.
