About the Site

ABC Journals is an Online Journal/Article Management system (OJS) that can enable all of the operations of the editorial functions of a journal from manuscript submission to publishing.

New Journals

Do you have an idea or perceive a need for a new scholarly journal? Join our publishing house (ABC Journals) and start participating in our streamlined new journal creation process. We will realise your ideas and create a new open access journal in the shortest possible time.

What criteria are considered when starting a new open access journal?

The scope of the journal needs to be detailed and specific. ABC Journals will publish journals that:

  • build on emerging fields of study
  • supplement fields with limited publishing opportunities
  • enhance communication within existing research communities
  • support global research
  • stimulate dialogue to evolving key audiences.

What is ABC Journals editorial structure?

Journals by ABC Journals are overseen by the Editor-in-Chief, with assistance from an expert advisory editorial team. Ultimate responsibility for the content of the journals published by ABC Journals lies with the Editor-in-Chief.

Where do I start?

To discuss launching an Open Access journal in partnership with ABC Journals, please draft a confidential proposal document and contact us.

 

What are the elements of a confidential journal proposal?

The more detail you provide, the better we will be able to understand and assist you. The journal proposal needs to explain in short:

  • proposed tile of the journal
  • the rationale and need for the new journal
  • the focus of your journal
  • how the journal will position itself in relation to existing publications
  • how the journal will serve a specific new or evolving research community
  • expected types of content/sections to be published in the journal
  • who will be involved, and a full Curriculum Vitae of a proposed Editor-in-Chief
  • how this new journal will be funded, particularly during the first 3 years.
Ideally, also include a list of six manuscripts that you will actively solicit for publication in the new journal during its first year. Please provide the general topic or working titles and the names of prospective authors and their positions/affiliations.
