Access Permitted: Developing Open Access Journals for Early Career Researchers and Staff Development

This case study was part of the HEA/JISC Open Educational Resources case study: pedagogical development from OER practice project.

This case study focuses on the development of Open Educational Resources (OER) in the shape of an open access journal in a staff development context in UK higher education. At the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) the Centre for Research Informed Teaching and the School of Languages and International Studies have developed a number of in-house peer-reviewed open access journals aimed at providing high quality forums for early career researchers. Combining with a current UCLan project funded by JISC's Digital Infrastructure track to develop open access e-journals one journal in particular – Journal of Second Language Teaching and Research (JSLT&R) – has been established to provide peerreviewed open access resources aimed at early career researchers (in their capacity as both authors editorial staff and readers) in second language learning and applied linguistics both within the University as well as internationally.
