This presentation will cover general trends and developments in journals and ways libraries can be involved in journal publishing, particularly as trusted repositories of information. Hosting journals is a good way to educate the editors about copyright and open access and scholarly communication. The presentation will cover the types of things you should consider when starting such a service and what type of support you can expect to provide. Practical examples will be given from The University of Iowa’s work with several journals, including migrating online content to a better platform, turning print only titles into online titles and also new titles.
