Hello Ina,

Please replace my name in the list below with that of Mimi Seyffert (mseyf at sun.ac.za<mailto:mseyf at sun.ac.za>).  She is the Manager: Digital Scholarship and Digitization, and responsible for administering our SUNJournals hosting service at Stellenbosch University.

I believe this e-mail now serves that purpose.

Subject: [NSEF] OJS Open Access Journal Hosting Services by South African Universities

Dear SA Scholarly Journal Editors

During the past year or two, more and more SA journals have made the transition to Open Access, improving access, visibility, and impact. Open Source Software such as Open Journal Systems<https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/> is now widely used by many publishers, and in addition to publishers or other hosts/directories/indexes, more and more universities are hosting their own. The universities are rich in terms of researchers taking ownership for the workflow involved in scholarly journal publishing: editors, reviewers, layout editors, copy editors, proofreaders, metadata editors (librarians) and more. At the same time, capacity is developed and responsibility is shared among all, following a collaborative approach, in support of the Open Source philosophy. Once the journals are online and open, it can apply for inclusion in directories such as DOAJ<https://doaj.org/>.

The following universities are exploring/have implemented OJS as a service.
