eScholarship has a new look! 

Over the past few months, we’ve redesigned the eScholarship homepage and informational pages to enable us to highlight important events within the scholarly communications environment and new services within UC’s eScholarship repository and Open Access publishing platform.  This new site includes feature stories, faculty interviews, popular research lists, and a refined navigational system to help faculty, students and librarians move easily through our various service offerings.  Note:  All publication pages remain unchanged and will be redesigned in consultation with our publishing community in the next phase of this work.

This month, we’re highlighting the following stories in eScholarship:

UCSF’s Open Access policy:  Learn about the recent passage of a campus-wide Open Access policy for all faculty journal articles and our work in supporting the implementation of the policy.

Public Knowledge Project Partnership:  CDL has signed on as one of PKP’s major development partners, working specifically to refine the Open Journals System (OJS) platform that provides peer review and manuscript management workflows for journal publishing.

eScholarship PLUS:  We are now providing eBook and Print-On-Demand production, distribution and sales services for book series and journals featured in eScholarship.  Learn more!

And don’t miss our video interview with Rich Schneider, Professor of Orthopaedic Medicine at UCSF, on why Open Access publishing matters…immensely!
