Open Access Journal Publishing Resource Index

Open Access

A variety of resources are available to guide the launch and operation of an open-access journal. To promote awareness of these resources, and to facilitate their efficient use, this section provides a high-level index to these guides by topic. Also included are links to example documents for key planning elements, such as new journal prospectuses, bylaws, sample editorial policies, and others.

For other detail, read our announcement.
