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 Medieval Review

Since 1993, The Medieval Review (TMR; formerly the Bryn Mawr Medieval Review) has been publishing reviews of current work in all areas of Medieval Studies, a field it interprets as broadly as possible. The electronic medium allows for very rapid publication of reviews, and provides a computer searchable archive of past reviews, both of which are of great utility to scholars and students around the world.

TMR operates as a moderated distribution list. Subscribers receive reviews as e-mail; TMR posts each review as soon as the editors have received and edited it. There is no paper TMR. Once posted, reviews are archived and available for viewing, searching, printing, etc. on this website.

Since 2007, TMR has been sponsored by the Medieval Studies Institute and the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University, Bloomington.
