Document Type

Digital Commons Webinar

Publication Date



The University of South Florida Libraries provides open access journal publishing and support services through their repository, ScholarCommons@USF. In this webinar, Todd Chavez, Director of Academic Resources, explains how his team has successfully launched or migrated eight open access journals, including some with a publishing history of more than 40 years. These efforts have enabled the journals to develop sustainable open access models, and have established USF Libraries as a leader in several strategic subject fields.

This webinar covers both start up and ongoing support for a library-led publishing program and is appropriate for both new and long-time publishing libraries.
