Over the past week, I've put together a series of posts on starting an Open Access journal. This is a post to tie them all together, to provide a table of contents and allow people to jump about.
Please note that I receive several email requests per week from individuals asking for help or detailed guidance in how to setup an OA journal. With my deepest regrets, I am afraid my time is simply insufficient to provide such guidance beyond what is here on these pages.
Part 1: Social structures, pre-requisites and financial requirements
Part 2: Software, DOIs, archiving
Part 3: Initial CFP, peer reviewing
Part 4: Typesetting and technicalities
Part 5: The launch, post-publication checklist, good luck
