About the Penn State Libraries Open Publishing Program and Services

The Libraries Open Publishing program, part of the Research Informatics and Publishing Department, has been publishing open access material since 2007. We began by publishing the free to read back issues of three Pennsylvania history journals, and have grown to provide publishing and hosting services to numerous journals, bibliographies, monographs, and topical web portal publications. The Open Publishing program utilizes a variety of platforms, including Open Journal Systems (OJS) and Drupal to provide online, Open Access publishing and hosting for both newly formed and established publications. To learn more about the full suite of services that Open Publishing provides, and the policies that govern our program, please review the Open Publishing Policies

The Penn State University Libraries are committed to making data and knowledge accessible to the Penn State community and to the public; the Open Publishing program is just one way it achieves that goal. To view more ways that Penn State is supporting the Open movement, please visit
