Open Journal Systems are the open-source software developed by PKP (Public Knowledge Project) for publishing and managing scholarly journals.
Introduction to OJS
It was developed in 2001 to improve research access, and it is the most widely used platform, with over 10,000 journals globally. It simplifies all stages of the e-publishing workflow, from building a journal website to other tasks including editing, submission, archiving, publications, peer-reviews etc.
Every journal with an OJS application has a unique URL. Thus, a single system installation manages multiple journals, and OJS allows a single editor to work on all the journal and website operations.
