About


The Iowa State University Digital Press, a unit of the Iowa State University Library, aims to publish high quality scholarship in areas reflected in Iowa State's curricular and research offerings, tell stories of Iowa and the Midwest, and diversify the voices in the scholarly record.

Mission

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
  • Diversify the voices, identities, and perspectives represented in the scholarly record.

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.

Land Acknowledgement

Iowa State University is located on the ancestral lands and territory of the Baxoje (bah-kho-dzhe), or Ioway Nation. The United States obtained the land from the Meskwaki and Sauk nations in the Treaty of 1842. We wish to recognize our obligations to this land and to the people who took care of it, as well as to the 17,000 Native people who live in Iowa today.
