AAPI Nexus: Special Issue on Asians in the Anglo-sphere
15:1 & 2 (Fall 2017)
Embracing Open Access: The Next Stage of the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Nexus Journal
Paul M. Ong and Melany De La Cruz-Viesca
After a decade and a half of existence, AAPI Nexus will become an open-access journal, a move that we hope will increase the social and political value of our contributors. This means granting “free, irre- vocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit, and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any respon- sible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship” (Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing, June 20, 2003). This 2017 issue is our last under the more traditional and restrictive publication format, which is the prevailing practice within the academy. Next year, we will make all future practitioners’ essays, resource papers, and research ar- ticles readily accessible online, with no cost to users. We believe that this approach will better serve our communities in providing them with actionable knowledge to improve policy, practice, advocacy, and organizing.
