Scholarly Communication & Publishing Services2020 CONTACT:
Johanna Meetz, Scholarly Communication & Publishing Services Librarian
Pacific University Libraries offer several different types of publishing services, including journal and book publishing. We also make scholarship (articles, theses, dissertations, etc.) created by faculty, staff, and students at Pacific available in our institutional repository, CommonKnowledge.
The creation and dissemination of scholarly knowledge is a vital part of the Libraries’ mission, including the scholarship and creative efforts of Pacific’s faculty, staff, and students, and the work of scholars at other academic institutions. These works also have the potential to benefit people outside of the University. Our publishing program provides a way for knowledge to be shared, discovered, and used in new and unanticipated ways.
