Did you know the Dalhousie Libraries provide digital journal publishing services to the University community by providing access to hosted online journal software? The software we use is Open Journal Systems (OJS), a collaborative, open source software project maintained by the Public Knowledge Project.
The Dal Libraries handle the initial set-up of journals, answer questions about how to use the software, and can make recommendations about how to implement the journal. The journal owners are responsible for publishing content, managing subscribers/readers, and customizing the design of the journal.
Some of the faculty-led, scholarly journals we host online are:
A refereed scholarly journal committed to the dissemination of knowledge derived from disciplined inquiry in the field of adult and continuing education. CJSAE is published twice yearly for the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education/l’Association Canadienne pour l’Étude de l’Éducation des Adultes.
Canada’s leading law and technology journal. The Canadian Journal of Law and Technology (CJLT) is an established legal journal dedicated to providing coverage of legal issues relating to law and technology from both Canadian and international perspectives. Published twice a year since 2002, CJLT is edited by Robert Currie and Steve Coughlan of Dalhousie’s Law and Technology Institute, and published by Thomson Carswell. The journal features articles, comments and book reviews on law and technology issues. The Dalhousie OJS website hosts CJLT content one year after initial publication. Current online and hard copy issues of the CJLT are available by subscription from Thomson Carswell.
Dionysius is the journal of Dalhousie University’s Department of Classics. It publishes articles on the history of ancient philosophy and theology, including Patristic theology, and their nachleben, as well as articles on Classical and later literature and history, and on Hellenic, Christian, Jewish and Islamic religion. Dionysius considers philosophy’s relation, both negative and positive, to Christian belief in both ancient and modern times. As well as philosophical articles, Dionysius will publish articles on Classical and later literature and history, and on Hellenic, Christian, Jewish and Islamic religion, especially when they have a connection to philosophical questions.
Provides an international open forum for researchers and practitioners to publish original research papers, reviews and case studies on a wide range of topics relevant to the development and use of natural resources and associated environmental issues.
The Proceedings of the Nova Scotian Institute of Science is a peer-reviewed online journal that will consider for publication original articles principally, but not exclusively, in the areas of natural and engineering sciences as well as papers emanating from studies in the health professions. Papers that develop new scientific theories based on scientific principles and/or analysis of data particular to Nova Scotia or the Atlantic Provinces are particularly encouraged.
The journal hosting service is also available to student journals. Some of the student journals that we host are:
A student-led initiative aimed at publishing graduate student work of the highest quality and significance in all areas of management. Its goals are to foster the convergence of ideas within the fields of Business Administration, Environmental Studies, Information Management, and Public Administration and to promote collegiality and encourage interdisciplinary communication and research.
The Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies is a non-profit, academic journal that publishes work from current law students and recent alumni in Canada and throughout the world. It was established in 1991 as a forum that promotes reflection and debate about contemporary legal issues. As one of the only publications of its kind in Canada, the Journal serves as a unique vehicle for law students to publish their work.
The Dalhousie Medical Journal is a student-run peer-reviewed biannual publication. Much like our medical school, we feature a mix of both science and humanities. The primary goal of the journal is to increase student participation in research and writing, while offering an interesting product for the Dalhousie medical community. In the past the journal has primarily published the work of Dalhousie medical students and residents. However, we encourage submissions from members of all allied health professions at any level of training. We are also very open to considering submissions from individuals based at institutions outside of the Dalhousie community.
First published in 1999, Pseudo-Dionysius is run by undergraduate and graduate students at Dalhousie and the University of King’s College. It offers the opportunity for university students at all levels to publish their work.
Verso: An Undergraduate Journal of Literary Criticism publishes essays from Dalhousie University English Department’s undergraduate students. It is an initiative of the Dalhousie English Society.
The YA Hotline is a bi-annual newsletter containing a large amount of information and resources for both young adults and young adult librarians, including book reviews, resource lists, bibliographies, feature articles, interviews and more.
