Below you will find the Libraries' Open Publishing journals catalog. All copyrights are retained by individual journals (or their parent organization) and are licensed under a Creative Commons license. Please visit individual journals for more information about their specific peer review, copyright, and licensing policies. The Penn State Libraries has also partnered with select print publications to provide open access to back issues of these publications.
The Open Publishing program supports journal publications using three different levels of service:
- Repository publications are those whose archive of published issues are provided online, fully Open Access, after an agreed upon embargo period.
- Supported publications are those that are publishing under a probationary period, in which the editor works to obtain an ISSN, utilize DOIs, adhere strictly to their publishing schedule, and strengthen their peer review process and guidelines.
- Imprint publications are those that have proven to publish on time within their publication schedule for at least one year, and who uphold their scholarly, peer review guidelines. Imprint journals have also been reviewed and approved for endorsement as a Penn State Libraries Open Publishing publication by the Open Publishing Board. They are provided with promotion and marketing support and guidance on abstracting/indexing/discovery services.
All publications serviced by the Libraries Open Publishing program are perserved securely on our locally hosted platform. If you would like to submit a proposal for a new publication, please visit the Publish with Us page.
