IUScholarWorks Journals

The Indiana University Libraries host open access journals. Our goal is to provide server space and to support the use of Open Journal Systems (OJS) as an open access publishing option for IU scholars who desire local control.

This online publishing system makes it possible to:

  • Publish open access publications
  • Track the peer-review process and other administrative functions
  • Maximize exposure and visibility of publications by making full-text accessible to Google Scholar and other search services
  • Tailor the appearance and identity of publications

OJS is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research.

Artifact is focused on practice-based design research and aims to explore conditions, issues and tasks pertaining to design development in a broad sense. The main emphasis of the journal is on aspects of design development concerning proposals, form-giving and conceptualization, which ties into a range of topics such as strategic design, design thinking, design innovation, design method and process, among others.

The journal is cross-disciplinary in scope and thus welcomes contributions from all design disciplines, including product design and graphic communication, IT and service design as well as organization design and design management.

Artifact publishes academic articles, short research notes, review articles, and essays. Academic articles and research notes are vetted in a double-blind review process.

We send out several calls for contributions each year. In addition, we welcome unsolicited contributions. Please refer to our Information for authors in the bottom right column of this site.

The World is Our Home

Books & Beyond is a collaborative project of Newark Collegiate Academy (Newark, New Jersey, U.S.A.), Indiana University’s Global Village Living-Learning Center (Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A.) and Kabwende Primary School (Musanze, Rwanda).  Books & Beyond is an innovative, newly established project which promotes intercultural communication, literacy skills, advancement of education, and service-learning by engaging students in authoring, illustrating, publishing, and marketing a collection of short stories.  Working in small pairs, IU’s Global Village students mentor Newark Collegiate Academy high school students and together the partners develop short stories that are compiled into a book and sent to Rwanda.  Copies of the book, along with teacher training guides and professional development workshops being developed for Kabwende Primary, will serve as models for the Rwandan students to create their own books.  The Rwandan students’ stories will be sent back to the United States, compiled in an anthology with the existing stories from New Jersey and Indiana, and will be sold, with the profit from the anthology returning to Kabwende in Rwanda.  Along the way, students acquire skills in authoring, mentoring and collaborating, intercultural communication, grant writing, documenting and fund- raising.
