Financial Services Review launches new Open Journal System submission portal!

You have heard the exciting news that the Board of the Academy if Financial Services has determined a new future for FSR – a Diamond Open Access future! Diamond Open Access means that researchers are free to submit new unpublished research for consideration of publication, there are no APCs (Article Processing Charges) if your research is published, you no longer need to be a member of AFS to submit to FSR (but we hope you are), the research is free for access by universities, researchers and those that love to read research globally!

Part of this transition is the launch of the Open Journal System, a web platform that is used by over 15,000 Open Journals worldwide. AFS is proud to have partnered with the University of Georgia who are hosting the system for us and supporting us in this change.

Here are some important things to know, as a reader and as a researcher:

    • The OJS system is “open”, so you do not need a password and ID to log in to view the research.
    • If you are a researcher, you do need to register on the OJS platform. You will be able to submit and work with the editorial team as they manage your submission through the review, copy editing and finally the publication process.
    • AFS will grant UGA Libraries a worldwide, non-exclusive license to all content published by the Journal, including metadata, that is necessary to publish, transmit, and index the Journal and to preserve its content over time. 
    • Authors will retain copyright to their work.  
    • The new platform has exciting integrations (either in place or in the process of being launched) that will make researchers lives better:
      • CrossRef integration will automatically create DOIs for every article published. Crossref makes research objects easy to find, cite, link, assess, and reuse.   
      • Google Scholar will automatically be updated with all submissions published on our OJS system.
    • Although copyright on prior publications will remain as notified on publication, AFS is loading all prior issues of FSR onto the new OJS platform and have already loaded from Vol 23 (2014) #1 to date. We hope to load issues from 2003 to 2013 by end of Q1-2024. This will ensure exposure of all published research as we have outlined above.
