News from the UNT Libraries

The UNT Libraries Journal Hosting service provides a platform for hosting online journals that are free to read immediately upon publication (i.e. “open access”), don’t charge publication fees, and include open licenses by which authors retain their copyright to all published materials.  The service is free to use for full-time UNT faculty who serve as editors or editorial board members on the journal.  The link above provides more information about our journal hosting terms & services. Currently hosted journals include the recently published North Texas Journal of Undergraduate Research, featuring research by students in the Honors College from a variety of disciplines,  and the newly created Unbound: A Journal of Digital Scholarship, which has just posted its first call for contributions.  If you’re interested in this service or have questions, please contact John Edward Martin, Scholarly Communication Librarian, at
