NWU open Journal system is a platform that aims at collecting NWU Open Access Journals to an OJS platform to enhance accessibility and curation of journals. NWU OJS aims to rationalize and simplify the editorial and publication process at the North-West University.

NWU Open access policy and self-publishing are regarded as key scholarly communication activities which lead to the adoption of the open Journal system at North-West University. OJS supports publishing on open access journals to promote access and visibility. The platform also enables the scholarly communication process by increasing the citation rates of articles along with journal ranking and accessibility of research outputs at no cost or free of charge.
