In support of greater global access to the work of Princeton researchers, Princeton University Library (PUL) has launched the PUL Open Access Publishing Program (POAPP). The new program offers Princeton faculty, researchers, students, and staff the opportunity to make their research available and searchable through open access online journals.

"The publishing program provides open terms and fewer financial barriers than traditional publishing models,” says Librarian for Scholarly Communications Yuan Li, who runs the program. “This program supports the mission of the University and the Library to democratize research and facilitate the spread of knowledge.”

The launch of this new program was driven by emerging practices in digital scholarship and publishing as well as campus demand for preservation, access, and scholarly content publication. The program will offer both publishing as well as a suite of services to support the process of creating high quality, peer reviewed, and open access scholarly publications. The program also seeks to support new forms of scholarship, complement teaching and learning initiatives, promote diversity and inclusion, and drive innovation and reform in academic publishing.
