Open Journal System: Home

This guide aims to familiarize faculty, student, and staff users to the open journal system (OJS) through a series of tutorials, videos, and links to helpful information on the Web.


The Open Journal System site hosts three peer-reviewed academic journals managed by faculty at the University of Toledo, with significant participation from University of Toledo students and researchers from partnering institutions.  Support for the University of Toledo Open Journal System comes from the University of Toledo Press.
