The Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication (JLSC) and Iowa State University Digital Press are delighted to announce that JLSC has selected the ISU Digital Press as its new publisher. 

JLSC is a continuously published peer-reviewed open access journal with no article processing charges for authors. JLSC publishes original articles, reviews, and case studies that analyze or describe the strategies, partnerships, and impact of library-led digital projects, online publishing, and scholarly communication initiatives. As they transition to the ISU Digital Press, the editorial team and editorial board extend their sincere gratitude to Pacific University Libraries, which has published JLSC since its inception in 2012. 

ISU Digital Press publishes journals, conferences, and books in support of Iowa State University’s land-grant mission to share knowledge beyond the campus borders. As a unit of the Iowa State University Library, ISU Digital Press is a core component of the library’s strategic priority focusing on open initiatives.

“The Iowa State University Library is committed to transforming scholarly communications and advancing open access and diversity in publishing,” said Curtis Brundy, Associate University Librarian for Scholarly Communications and Collections. “JLSC is a leading journal addressing these issues and we look forward to working with JLSC’s Editorial Team.”

JLSC and ISUDP share a commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in scholarly communication. Further, they both seek to reduce bias and barriers to participation, at all levels, in the scholarly conversation.

JLSC will transition to ISUDP in Summer 2021, becoming the fifth journal in ISU Digital Press’s portfolio. It will continue to be accessible at https://jlsc-pub.org/.
