Journals

Michigan Journals provides an affordable, efficient, integrated, born-digital publishing solution for important journals in niche areas. We are particularly interested in partnerships with journals that share our interest in and commitment to broad distribution and accessibility, common-sense approaches to copyright, and evolving models for scholarly communication. Through adherence to external standards, we help our partners demonstrate editorial excellence and meaningful impact.

Journal of Electronic Publishing

The Journal of Electronic Publishing (JEP) is a forum for research and discussion about contemporary publishing practices, and the impact of those practices upon users. Our contributors and readers are publishers, scholars, librarians, journalists, students, technologists, attorneys, and others with an interest in the methods and means of contemporary publishing.

Philosopher's Imprint

Philosophers' Imprint is a refereed series of original papers in philosophy, founded in the spirit of the Open Access movement. Although the Imprint is edited by analytically trained philosophers, it is not restricted to any particular field or school of philosophy. Its target audience consists primarily of academic philosophers and philosophy students, but it also aims to attract non-academic readers to philosophy by making excellent philosophical scholarship available without license or subscription.

Trans-Asia Photography Review

The Trans-Asia Photography Review is an international refereed open-access journal devoted to the discussion of historic and contemporary photography from Asia. The study of photography from Asia is a field that is still in its early stages, and we aim to encourage quality, depth, and breadth in its development. The TAP Review brings together the perspectives of curators, historians, photographers, anthropologists, art historians, and others in an effort to investigate photography from Asia as fully as possible.

Michigan Journal of Sustainability

The Michigan Journal of Sustainability aims to foster transdisciplinary communication by publishing timely, innovative, stimulating, and informative articles that translate scholarly research on systemic sustainability problems into useful formats for practitioners and policy makers. Founded and overseen by University of Michigan graduate students, the Journal is sponsored by the Graham Sustainability Institute at the University of Michigan and is freely available to read online.
