From the miseries of early public prisons to the mysteries of Native American medicine to The Scarlet Letter as market place, articles published in Concept, an Interdisciplinary Journal of Graduate Studies, range across the disciplines their graduate student writers represent. Published by Villanova University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the thirteenth volume of the journal is the first edition offered in electronic form through Falvey Memorial Library’s nascent online journal hosting service.
On Thursday, April 22, Falvey Library hosted a celebration of the publication of the 2010 Concept, and the event also commemorated the new partnership between this established outlet of campus scholarship and the library’s latest expression of its commitment to open access publishing and digital scholarship.
The occasion featured remarks on the vibrancy and diversity of graduate research at the University and the evolution of Concept by Arts and Sciences Dean of Graduate Studies Adele Lindenmeyr and Concept faculty managing editor Gregory Hoskins. This year’s graduate student authors and editorial staff were recognized, and there was a video demonstration of the new library-hosted Concept web site. University Librarian Joe Lucia and Outreach Librarian Darren G. Poley addressed Falvey Library’s bold new open access initiatives and digital partnerships.
