Alex and Conor introduce SAH Journal (sahjournal.com) as an open access academic journal project involving the collaborative efforts of emerging and established scholars as well as academic librarians at the BOBCATSSS conference in Lyon, 29 January 2016 (http://bobcatsss2016.com). Conor explains the benefits of collaborating with research librarians through publishing. Alex asserts that librarians (libraries) are perfectly positioned to enter into direct competition with established commercial journal publishers. He explains the mechanics of electronic publishing from conceptional planning to implementation via, in this instance, Open Journal Systems (OJS).
