Are you interested in starting a new journal? Do you contribute to a journal that is already established?
Publishing insightful work that shapes how others see the world is one of the finest pursuits, in our very biased opinion. Journals form the backbone of the scholarly record, and their articles become part of larger conversations in academic and public ecosystems. This is all very wonderful, however, the work involved in publishing a journal is myriad and ceaseless.
This guide supports journal publishing initiatives across NYU by providing information about the various issues involved in journal publishing, including how to access NYU services that support this work.
We specialize in Open Access, which is the practice of making scholarly research freely available and reusable, by lowering the paywall and legal barriers that are traditional in scholarly publishing. NYU Libraries places a strategic emphasis on Open Access and is committed to its growth and development. Much of this guide speaks directly to building an Open Access journal. However, many of the fundamentals that we cover are applicable to any journal. To learn more about Open Access (OA), please visit our Open Access guide.
