Publishing, communication, and information exchange are all undergoing rapid change, at a time when innovative scholarship is opening up many new fields of study and techniques of inquiry. Scholars at the University of Minnesota and elsewhere are leading a variety of transformations in scholarly communication, and supporting sustainable publishing practices that expand the reach and impact of research.

"Our authors have rights to reproduce their articles in print or other media and place the articles in a digital repository or archive of their institution. In addition, the authors may authorize others to exercise any of these rights. We feel expanded ownership of their published work promotes author confidence in the journal and facilitates free and timely dissemination of new scientific information."
