With hhu.journals, ULB Düsseldorf offers researchers from all disciplines at HHU the opportunity to publish open access journals for free.
hhu.journals takes care of the entire editorial process and thus enables efficient journal management with clear role allocation. You’ll be responsible for the editorial process as well as for implementing it independently, including creating the PDF files and publishing the respective journal issues. In addition to operating the platform, ULB offers editors and editorial staff an introduction to working with OJS as well as support in case of questions or issues.
In addition to free use of the platform, the advantages for you as editors are a persistent address for your journals and articles (DOI) and good visibility in relevant search engines and (meta)catalogues.
The platform ULB provides is based on the popular Open Journal Systems (OJS) software. This open source software is provided as part of the Public Knowledge Project (PKP), an initiative of several universities to support academic publishing.
