Course Journals Supporting Social Justice: Developing Equitable Scholarly Communications Through In-class Publishing Projects

Resource type
Date created
How can OJS and OMP be used in classes to engage students in discussions around social justice in scholarly publishing? This presentation will discuss examples of course journals and book projects at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) which attempt to involve students in anti-colonial, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive forms of scholarship. These projects aim to be inclusive in a variety of ways: in terms of accessibility, language, content formats, and sustainability strategies. The presenters discuss the ways that OJS and OMP can be used in the classroom to develop students’ awareness of, and ability to address, social justice concerns in traditional publishing. Finally, they will explore how lessons learned from these case studies can be implemented in other courses.
