The aim of the project is to acknowledge the Lithuanian research journal publishers and editorial boards with Open Journal Systems (OJS) which is a wide-spread research journal electronic publishing system and encourage them to use this system for publishing and distribution of the Lithuanian research journals. This project will include workshops which will be organized in Vilnius, Kaunas and Šiauliai. The participants of the workshop will learn about the Open Journal Systems methods for on-line management of all the research journal publishing stages, from manuscript submission to their publishing. Moreover, digital object identifiers (DOI) and possibilities of implementing plagiarism prevention (CrossCheck) system for the Lithuanian journals will be presented at the workshop.
A trial journal version in English and Lithuanian will be prepared for the purpose of the project and guidelines for journal editors will be published. In order to attract the attention of more editorial boards of the Lithuanian journals, more detailed information about the project will be announced at the workshops organized by the Association of Lithuanian Serials as well as local and international scholarly conferences.
