Publication of Open Access Journals
The Specialised Information Service Linguistics (Fachinformationsdienst FID Linguistik) gives scientists, associations or smaller publishing houses the opportunity to publish linguistically relevant open access journals.
Our service is free of charge. It includes:
Long-term sustainability of the content
Integration in catalogue systems and databases
The Software Open Journal Systems (OJS) enables a web-based management of e-journals, workings papers or other digital periodical publications. OJS covers the entire editorial workflow – from submission of an article and organization of a peer-review process, up to publication. The OJS interface is available in numerous languages.
The University Library Frankfurt will provide the basic set-up and the hosting of the platform as well as the long-term storage of the contents. Within the technical framework of OJS, an individual configuration of the layout is possible. In order to achieve high visibility the journal will be integrated in German and international catalogue systems and databases. Furthermore, the provisioning of persistent identifiers (DOI, URN) will ensure unambiguous citation and referencing.
Practical introductions to the OJS software as well as the maintenance of the infrastructure are part of the FID e-publishing service.
