Additional Information

Plans for expansion/future directions: In early 2017, our campus passed an open access policy. We are currently developing enhanced services to support compliance with the policy. We will continue to use Pressbooks to publish eTexts and potentially Open Educational Resources. We plan on migrating to OJS 3 by Spring 2018. As a result of the migration, we plan to develop more comprehensive assessment services for our open journals. We will also work toward improving existing infrastructure for data publishing.
