Centre for Digital Scholarship (CDS) has been providing digital publication services for regional, national, and international academic partners for over 20 years. Our clients range from journals with decades of print publication to new “born-digital” publications. The CDS offers a wide range of services for current and prospective scholarly publications, and can help editorial staff to develop a digital publication that meets their needs. Our services include creation of new digital publications, hosting digital versions of established print publications, large-scale back-run digitization projects, and a state-of-the-art online peer review and management system.
