I am now deeply indebted to John Willinsky at the University of British Columbia for having created the Open Journal Systems, a PHP-based system for on-line journals that is a wonderful all-in-one package that’s similar in scope to other software to create an electronic editorial office (a list distributed by the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers). Except that the Open Journal Systems is free in all senses of the word. I’m using it now as back-end support on my desktop at home for my work as H-Education‘s book-review editor and I have a few other projects in mind for it.

Now if I can only find a server that will have all the necessary stuff (PHP and MySQL support, primarily), and we can get cracking.
