New JISC open journal project

I'm delighted to be able to announce that the JISC have very generously funded us to create an overlay journal interface for SAS-Space.

We'll be creating an overlay journal system based on SAS-Space, with Amicus Curiae as the initial example, using the open source Open Journal Systems. This system will then be made available, at minimal cost, to both other existing and new journals produced within the School, and to publications by cognate learned societies. Such a system will greatly increase open access publishing capacity in the humanities and social sciences, and further fulfil the School’s remit from HEFCE for research promotion and facilitation.

More details on the project blog.
