Title: Open Journal Systems
Description: In this session we will look at Open Journal Systems.
GAPworks, a workflow software of the project German
Publishers (GAP) will be presented.
The system allows the setup of a complete publication
workflow for publishing institutions including a
review. The workflow supports different review models,
configured to meet local requirements, and can also
be used as
an institutional repository with an embedded OAI
We will also look
at the SEER/OJA system of IBICT in order to find
overlap as well as differences in the approach.
Despite these more
technical presentations, we will look at strategies
how to set up Open Journals and how academic researches be motivated
to contribute their papers to such journals.
be willing to share their experiences in setting
Journals in the hope that the Session will enable
people to use the full potential
of such tools to build new or expand existing research
