Abstract

With the rise of Open Access (OA), Institutional Repositories (IR), and the “Library as Publisher”, more and more librarians take on an expanded role in scholarly communication. In providing and supporting IRs like ScholarWorks and in publishing new OA journals. Along with this, the need for librarians to provide services comparable to those of traditional publishers is apparent. The effort for librarians to “tool up” and gain the knowledge and skills needed to provide these services can be difficult to learn or even locate. The presentation will cover research into some of the Byzantine standards and expectations that must be met by modern pier reviewed academic journals and their publishers. With this information, I will present a roadmap for librarians and editors to follow that will align their journals with current standards. This roadmap will be available online and provide links to current examples of how existing journals meet these requirements. This roadmap will provide librarians with clear and accessible information they can use to provide the kind of professional services and support previously available from traditional publishers.
