University Press of Colorado, Utah State University Press, University of Wyoming Press, and University of Alaska Press are deeply committed to diversity and inclusion. Knowledge advances through productive differences in thinking. Therefore, we encourage diverse viewpoints in our workplace, on our governing body, within the body of scholarship we publish, among the authors who produce that scholarship, and in all of our collaborations and partnerships.
As part of our commitment to transparent and equitable peer review and publication processes, we have included guidance for current and prospective authors regarding those processes and our publication timelines on our website here.
As a member of the Association of University Presses, we fully support the Joint Statement of Principles developed by the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Publishing and the Statement on Equity & Anti-Racism ratified by the Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Committee and the AUPresses Board of Directors.
