The Library provides open access publishing services for faculty and students based on Open Journal Systems, DSpace, Islandora and Dataverse platforms. We are a member of CrossRef, and can issue DOIs for hosted publications, and can offer DOIs to research data via DataCite Canada. We work individually with prospective editors and authors, and can also assist with ISSN registration and journal indexing referrals.
