Library Publishing Service

Library Publishing Service

The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries Publishing Service (LPS) supports scholarly journals, online exhibitions, and other open access digital projects to promote learning, share research, and engage a wider public audience.

Open Access Journals

Our journals are published using Janeway, an open-source publishing platform. The interface is used to share content with readers, but also coordinates users across the process of manuscript submission, peer review, editing, typesetting, and publication. In addition to utilizing Janeway tutorials, support, and hosting offered through the LPS, student writers and editors can benefit from the Library's frequent workshops covering the ins-and-outs of academic publishing.

There are three journals and one reference series currently published by the LPS:

Digital Projects

The LPS employs a growing selection of platforms to publish other kinds of digital projects — online exhibitions, interactive maps, educational resources, and more. We’ve worked with software like Omeka, ArcGIS, and Wordpress, along with custom development tools. Many of the teams we’ve worked with have also drawn from the Library’s vast resources — access to repositories and TDM sources, workshops on working with data and code, large media and data hosting on KiltHub, etc.

Projects currently hosted and maintained by the LPS include:
