The Electronic Journals platform provides a full suite of services for creating and hosting on-line journals, including mechanisms for article submission, peer-review workflow, journal layout, reader access, and long term archiving. OJS will be of interest to Memorial University faculty who are planning to launch a new electronic journal, those who are looking for an electronic delivery platform for journals that currently exist only in paper, or those who would like to repatriate an electronic journal currently hosted elsewhere. Students will also be welcome to participate in the project, and the library will provide technical support to those interested in creating an on-line journal, or an on-line version of an existing journal. For more information please contact Lisa Goddard.
Regional Language Studies...Newfoundland
The periodical Regional Language Studies...Newfoundland (RLS) has been supported by the English Department, at times jointly with the Folklore Department, since 1968. Its original aims have been maintained and developed since then: to spread information about all aspects of linguistics, to print bibliographies, especially to present articles on regional vocabulary and meanings, and to examine place and family names.
RLS welcomes submissions from academics, students, and others on topics relating to Newfoundland languages. Articles on non-English language topics in the Newfoundland and Labrador context are also encouraged.
