What is eScholarship Publishing?

Established in 2002, eScholarship Publishing is a comprehensive open access publishing program for the University of California academic community. eScholarship offers publishing and production tools as well as professional support and consulting services for journals, preprints, monographs, conference proceedings, and other UC-affiliated original scholarship. Our publications often traverse standard disciplinary boundaries, explore new publishing models, support under-represented voices within the scholarly record, and reach communities and/or professionals in applied fields beyond academia.
