Expanding The Reach Of Research

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.

We hope this site will help you:

"For people working in the humanities, the cost of a journal might not necessarily be a reason to promote open access. However, a freely accessible online medium does open up a creative space where new forms of collaboration are possible. As someone who concentrates on collective writing in contemporary Europe, literary publications shared through open access are an exciting new genre of primary texts."
