PressForward will debut new publications, each an experiment in the aggregation, curation, or crediting of scholarly communication on the open web. We also will help other scholarly communities from the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities initiate or enhance their web-first publications. Potential editors interested in developing an experimental publication for the open web should fill out our questionnaire and then contact us.
