Openess to Partners: Consider external partners if there is a tie to my institution (e.g. local editor of a journal for an external scholarly society)
Best publications to refer to our program: Journals edited by KU faculty/staff/students and monographs written by KU faculty. We're also very interested in adding more work created by marginalized individuals/groups at KU to the institutional repository.
