Program Overview

We offer our open access journal publishing platform to more comprehensively support, record, and promote the scholarly activities of faculty and students, providing opportunities for creating and widely disseminating new scholarship, and improving the look and discoverability of existing journals. We seek to educate researchers and community members about the larger contexts of open access, and their options in terms of making their scholarship widely available, accessible, and discoverable.
