Free, open source software for open access journal publishing is available for those wishing to start up new journals, for example, the Open Journal Systems (OJS) [http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/] developed by the Public Knowledge Project [http://www.pkp.ubc.ca/index.html] and HyperJournal [http://www.hjournal.org/] developed by volunteers, but now partially funded by the political science faculty of Pisa University [http://www.hjournal.org/team] . While OJS and HyperJournal are designed for academic publishing, they can be used by anyone; there is a group of grade 8 girls in Vancouver, British Columbia, who use OJS to publish their own peer-reviewed journal.
