Libraries are trying various ways to partner with scholars to start up, move, and underwrite openly accessible scholarly journals. The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has had a long history of doing this through the Web. Recently, the maturing of the Public Knowledge Project’s (PKP) Open Journal System has offered the ability to significantly improve what the UIC Library has to offer its faculty and clients. The session will review briefly what has been done, how it is working, and it will provide plenty of time for others to share their successes and failures in open access journal publishing.
