Publish with Us

Florida State Open Publishing supports scholarly monographs, textbooks, edited collections, journal articles, conference proceedings, and interactive publications.

Our mission is to provide the FSU community with professional publishing services that ensure unfettered digital access, promote broad dissemination and impact, encourage innovation and experimentation, and amplify the voices of scholars working on niche or underserved topics. We are especially interested in working with authors and editors who share these values and are excited by the prospect of making the scholarly publishing ecosystem more diverse, inclusive, and sustainable.
