So you want to start an OA journal?

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) has recently created a free index of resources to help launch and operate Open Access (OA) journals:
Open Access Journal Publishing Resource Index
From the SPARC news release announcing the index:
The new index complements the rich existing resource center by pointing to relevant sections in existing open-access journal publishing guides and to sample journal proposals, policies, bylaws, and other documentation to help with planning, development, and collaboration issues. Topics covered include:
• New Journal Planning
• Journal Publishing Program Policies
• Governance
• Editorial
• Marketing & Promotion
• Technical Platforms
• Sustainability Planning
