As co-editors of an open access LIS journal, we manage a small, volunteer organization, and many of the practices we follow to solicit, publish, and maintain content on schedule might fit some people’s definition of predatory practices. As librarians, we understand best practices for publishing a journal, but as publishers of a small journal we are often forced to compromise. We will explore best practices for publishing an open access journal through the lens of our own experience, describe the process of migrating from one journal publishing platform to another, and reflect on how our experiences differ from “best practices.”
