The availability of new digital tools and problems in academic publishing hav led many scholarly journals to investigate the transition from a print-format, subscription model to web publishing platforms. Such systems typically assist journal editors and writers in managing the peer-review and production process, while helping them to publish a broadly accessible and professional journal. Open Journal Systems is one such open access product being explored on a trial basis at www.IUPDHC.Org/openjournal.
