Open Access Journals Published at UMMS

Through eScholarship@UMMS, the Lamar Soutter Library can help departments publish their own open access journals or newsletters. The repository software was originally designed for electronic publishing and includes a peer-review and editorial management system. Currently the Library hosts open access electronic journals for the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, Radiology, the UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science, and our own library science journal.  If you are considering starting an online open access journal, here are some helpful resources.

Journal of Parent and Family Mental Health

Journal of Global Radiology

Neurological Bulletin

UMCCTS Newsletter

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Research Data

While there are many options for publicly sharing datasets, eScholarship@UMMS can also serve as a home for your research data when you need to make it available as a condition of publication.  View an example of a dataset housed in eScholarship@UMMS or our complete Research Datasets collection.
