We offer a variety of services to support publishing and archiving of scholarly work from the University of Florida. Florida Online Journals is the preferred site for scholarly journals with UF affiliation that are currently publishing. Open Access publishing services include the UF Open Access Publishing Fund and open educational resources such as the Orange Grove Texts Plus. The institutional repository, IR@UF, is an accessible archive for a broad range of scholarly work from presentations, reports and dissertations to data management plans and supplementary files. Copyright and Fair Use services are also available.


Florida Online Journals (Florida OJ)

Florida OJ is an affordable digital publishing platform that provides easy indexing and professional preservation. Publishers of scholarly journals affiliated with UF in current production can use this site to accept and review submissions, publish current issues and host back issues. Support for UF users is provided by a UF Florida OJ Service Team and networking is encouraged through the Florida OJ Publishers Round Table. Florida OJ is hosted by FLVC who provides a statewide installation of the open source Public Knowledge Projects’ Open Journal System. For more information contact Suzanne Stapleton or visit Publishing with Florida OJ.
