Publish an online journal

Service Overview

IUScholarWorks Journals is a full-service publishing option for IU scholars who desire local control. We work with Indiana University Faculty at all campuses who are associated with the publishing functions of a journal or who want to start a new venture.

We can help you:

  • Start a new journal
  • Migrate a current journal to a new publishing model
  • Increase accessibility of a current journal published via another mechanism
  • Manage a back-end workflow environment for a journal that is published by another entity
  • Archive a ceased journal
