Virginia Tech Libraries Publishing Services

Scholarly Communication’s epublishing services include hosting PKP's Open Journal Systems and Open Conference Systems software and assisting with workflow design and overall production support. We can:

  • Improve access to research in your field by starting a new journal.
  • Expose a journal now hidden behind a pay wall.
  • Gather and publish your conference’s proceedings.

Virginia Tech Libraries will help with these and more. We provide OJS and OCS to make journal production much less time-consuming, especially if you’ve been relying on manual processes to date. OJS helps with the call for papers, the peer review process, the publication of each issue, etc.

This management and publishing system can improve workflow, but you still control and look and feel of your publication.

To take advantage of our services and resources, contact Gail McMillan:, Director of Scholarly Communication.
