Publish and manage your online journal with OJS. Open Journal Systems (OJS) is open source software installed by Queen's University Library for use by Queen's faculty and staff wishing to publish an online open-access or subscription-based journal.
OJS supports all aspects of journal publishing including peer review, tracking subscriptions, copy editing, etc. OJS is a research and development initiative of the Public Knowledge Project. Its continuing development is currently overseen by a partnership among the University of British Columbia, the Simon Fraser University Library, and the Canadian Center for Studies in Publishing.

Immediate Science Ecology
Immediate Science Ecology is an editorial-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal published at Queen’s University. Opportunity for post-publication peer review and detailed download statistics are provided. Undergraduate honor’s students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows publish free of charge.
The primary goal of Immediate Science Ecology (ISE pronounced ‘eyes’) is to accelerate the rate of discovery in ecology. This can be achieved through at least the three following pathways: discovery, documentation, and development. All submissions are first identified as empirical or review. Then, accordingly, the authors must identify both in the submission and in the keywords whether the article is forwarding ecology via discovery (preliminary or exploratory study), documentation (confirmatory study or refutation of previous studies), or development (a standard study). The former two instances accelerate discovery in ecology by providing both the substrate for additional research developments and an accurate picture of the research conducted to date to the community so as to avoid repetition by others of work formerly unpublished and largely unknown. The latter category enhances synthesis and research by providing a niche for studies that need to be published very quickly so as to inform the community or public about important findings. Any level of biological organization including humans is considered.
ISE is searchable though Google Scholar, and by using any Open Archives Initiative (OAI) compliant metadata harvester. Google Scholar also tracks number of citations and lists citations for articles published herein.

International Journal of Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace
The International Journal of Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace is dedicated to the theory and practice of engineering that extends social justice and peace in the world. Our approach works toward engineering practices that enhance gender, racial, class, and cultural equity and are democratic, non-oppressive, and non-violent. More
