U Cincinnati Press Offers Free Racial Equity Books

Intercultural PedagogyPlatforms and Pathways in Social Innovation: Racial Equity, University of Cincinnati Press, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

The University of Cincinnati Press, established in 2017, is taking a different approach to open access for their publications than Cornell University Press and University of Minnesota Press. They are making multiple chapters from 11 of their books and/or journals available for free, with no expiration date, and encouraging conversation about the topics covered. Their statement says: “Platforms and Pathways for Social Innovation offers open content on a platform where author, reader and community members can come together to engage in thoughts, comments, and questions and share content and discussion with others. We believe open access content is a social justice right which provides equitable access to peer-reviewed writing, otherwise limited to those with academic privilege.”

Their titles include the journal Race & Society, and the books Rethinking America’s Past by Tim Gruenewald, and Across the Color Line by Mark Curnutte.
