Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, academic research is more important than ever, and the large-scale shift to distance learning at colleges and universities around the world means students need new forms of access to content. In response to these new and extensive demands, the University of Pennsylvania Press has announced that all content available through the Press’ digital publishing partners will be made accessible at no cost to customers.
The decision to make digital content freely accessible reflects Penn Press’ key role in supporting the international academic community as it endeavours to perform the vital work of research, discovery and education under current global circumstances. The Press is able to provide this accessibility for scholars and readers with the support of its digital publishing partners worldwide: DeGruyter, EBSCO, MUSE and ProQuest. Members of the Penn community can access this material via Penn’s membership in these services.
As the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, Penn Press’ publications will make an important contribution to how we think about our history and look to the future to reform and rebuild: from public policy to urban infrastructure, economics to international relations. Penn Press’ free digital access will be available through June 30, 2020.
