A brief description of the open access journal hosting services:

JCCC began work with ScholarSpace in 2008. Library staff offer both financial and staffing support for faculty who wish to purchase rights to their work back from publishers and those who wish to ensure their contracts are written in such a way that they will retain rights for college publication.

On a case-by-case basis, JCCC awards stipends to faculty who choose to integrate OER into their course and purchases article rights from publishers for inclusion on ScholarSpace.

Staffing support is available at no cost to all employees during the publication process and includes: helping faculty coordinate with publishers to self-archive previously published works, preparing and uploading works (article processing), and working with publishers before publisher/author contracts are signed to ensure they will protect future open access.
