Open Journal Systems

Open Journal Systems support the process of publishing e-journals.

If you want to set up and develop an electronic journal a lot of things come on your way, for example receiving articles from authors as an editor, coordinating the reviewing process, taking care of the design and the table of contents, etc. etc.

A lot of work has to be done before an e-journal is ready to be published. Open Journal System could play an important and time-saving role in keeping an overview of this process.
