Are you currently involved with an academic journal looking for a new, free hosting option? Are you interested in starting a new peer-reviewed journal?
Our institutional repository system, IU ScholarWorks, includes a free, open-access publishing platform. To date, IU South Bend hosts seven journals - the complete runs of five student journals (Analecta, the Graduate Research Journal, New Views on Gender, the Undergraduate Research Journal, and the Undergraduate Research Journal of History) as well as the entire runs of two retired journals published outside of the IU system: the Bulletin Bibliographique de la Societe Rencysyals and Olifant.
We have found that by placing journals in IU ScholarWorks, we have greatly increased the visibility and reach of these publications. From 2016-17, the five student journals in ScholarWorks were accessed 21,422 times!
