A brief description of the open access journal hosting services:

CWU offers journal hosting services through ScholarWorks. We currently have two journals (links below). We offer the ability for authors to submit their work, editors to send the articles to reviewers, and reviewers to send back the reviews and then the editor to publish the articles. We also offer a checklist for any department that would like to create a journal describing what information we need to create the journal page and allow them to begin accepting submissions.

We try to create a record with a link for 100% of the published scholarly output from CWU professors. When copyright allows, we put the published version in ScholarWorks. We have done a retrospective of all past published work from CWU authors.
