This class will provide an interactive introduction to open access journal publishing with a focus on cultivating the tools and practices necessary to develop a high-quality, sustainable publication. Participants will learn how one established library publishing program (California Digital Library’s eScholarship Publishing) evaluates potential journal proposals and supports editorial teams as they develop their journals. After exploring best practices, participants will evaluate a selection of sample OA journal proposals. We will move from discussion of general best practices toward more in-depth discussions. Peer review, in both its traditional and open forms, will be discussed, with a particular lens on the importance of ensuring a diverse evaluation of work.
