The Caltech Library has a long history of making the scholarly works of Caltech researchers available, hosting and preserving the content online. Recently, we have designed a publishing platform that will help researchers share their findings widely with minimal cost and substantial impact. The Library can now publish researcher-led, open access journals and books that serve the academic community.
The Library’s most recent open access publications include the journal microPublication Biology and multimedia textbook Atlas of Bacterial and Archaeal Cell Structure. Following the success of these publications, the Library can now work with the Institute’s researchers to produce multimedia, open access texts across all disciplines.
The Library is committed to developing new platforms of scholarly communication and publishing to meet the needs of modern researchers—with all the academic rigor of print publishing but without the traditional overhead or technology limitations. We encourage Caltech researchers to submit proposals for future publishing program projects. You can contact us at library [at] caltech.edu.
