This will register a scholarly article, that has been previously published in a peer-reviewed journal at OPUSeJ or elsewhere, to be included in the OPUSeJ Forum. Here, the author and article information will appear with a link to the published article. If this version is not open-access, a link to an open-access version of the article, will be added. An open-access version can be created by submitting the pre-review version to an institutional or discipline repository. The policies for doing so will vary with the repository and the journal involved and this should be confirmed before proceeding.The SHERPA/RoMEO site at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/ can be helpful in finding publisher copyright policies.
An article already published in OPUSeJ would have no restriction for inclusion in the Forum.
The author would send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. They would attach a completed form (see OPUSeJ Forum Registration Form under Forms/Guidelines) along with the open-access version of their article, as a second attachment. Once established, the author would be able to add any addendum, erratum and citations forward, to the site. They would moderate reader commentary and have the option to reply to each. Reader commentary would be posted by open identification, with their name, position and city included in the comment section.
All posted material would be patrolled by OPUSeJ and its readers to eliminate abuse. We ask the author to include both positive and negative comments, if they are presented as constructive criticism. Personal messages are to be avoided.
A nominal registration fee will apply (currently not being charged).
