In support of Iowa State University's land-grant mission to spread knowledge beyond campus walls, the Iowa State University Digital Press aims to:

  • Facilitate broad dissemination of knowledge through Open Access publishing and promotion;
  • Provide increased opportunities for Iowa State University faculty, students, and staff to share their research;
  • Publish quality scholarship in alignment with the university's curricular and research strengths; and
  • Diversity the voices, identities, and perspectives represented in the scholarly record.

Iowa State University Digital Press Diversity Statement

The Iowa State University Digital Press is committed to increasing the diversity of voices that is represented in the scholarly record. We welcome journals and conferences that seek to publish articles from students, emerging scholars, authors from underrepresented groups, in languages other than English, and voices from outside academia. We strongly encourage journal editors and conference committees to build editorial boards and peer reviewer pools that are inclusive of a diversity of identities, geographies, perspectives, and lived experiences appropriate to the scope of the journal or conference.
