Service Support

Scholarly Exchange® Service Support

The role of Scholarly Exchange is to facilitate the use of a low-cost software hosting platform. We want you to be successful running your journals and we're happy to direct you to useful resources within the expansive PKP environment. We do not manage anything pertaining to the day-to-day operation of your journal. All journals using the Scholarly Exchange® service are encouraged to use the PKP school and forum for support requests.

The Scholarly Exchange® service also offers customization support at an hourly rate of $100/hour. Please see the "Additional Services" portion of our Services page.

Google Analytics

The OJS software has some native statistics and reporting options. For a more robust and complete picture of journal usage, we recommend installing the Google Analytics plugin. This module from the PKP School provides detailed information about how to install and use the plugin. Information is also available in the user guide under Google Analytics Plugin.

Affordable and Sustainable

Open Access Publishing

The Scholarly Exchange® service provides to you a proven platform for your new open access scholarly journal.

Publishing System

We use a feature-rich publishing platform that allows journals to fully manage the administrative and editorial aspects of their journal. We also make sure your content never gets lost by providing daily backups.


Open Access

We are committed to providing research communities a low-barrier resource to share knowledge and ideas through open and responsible collaboration.


Low Cost

Set-up and start your journal risk free with no service fees for the first year. Subsequent year service fees are kept low to ensure you can focus on your journal content and not the cost of producing it.


Quick Startup

Starting a Scholarly Exchange® hosted journal begins with a proposal form and, once submitted, you could be working on creating content within a month.
