Library publishers often straddle the line between journal publisher and journal host, which presents challenges for ensuring that journals meet certain standards for quality and transparency. At Indiana University, we conducted a self-evaluation to determine whether our library-published open access journals were following best practices for scholarly journals. This presentation will discuss the methods and criteria used, and how we developed new tools and approaches to educating journal editors based on our findings.
