Radical Access: The SFU Scholarly Publishing blog
Voice from the field: A former editor-in-chief shares their perspective on student-run peer-reviewed journals
Next week (October 25-31) is Open Access Week, and we’re taking the opportunity to hear from former editor-in-chief, Dr. Poh Tan about her experiences as editor for an open access, graduate student-run, and peer-reviewed journal: SFU Educational Review.
Students, faculty, and staff at SFU can work with the Library to publish academic and educational content using open source software developed right here at SFU Library through our Digital Publishing division. Read on to learn about some recent book projects created by students in their classes and published with the Library.

As post-secondary instructors adapt to providing online instruction for the foreseeable future, many are looking for new ways to engage with students in an online environment. Course journal projects, using Open Journal Systems (OJS), can offer one such opportunity.
Changing the academic system to be more accessible
“You shouldn’t have to pay a large sum of tuition to have access to basic information,” Melissa Roach says when I ask her what she’d like to change about our academic system. “It just creates layers of mediation between scholars, media and the public, and that disconnect can cause a lot of misunderstanding.”
