Digital Publishing Initiatives at OSU is all about bringing cutting edge research and writing to wider audiences. We use a variety of digital publishing tools to make this happen. We also consult with authors looking to start academic journals, publish open access books, or create online exhibits of their work.

Journal of Student Affairs Inquiry

The Journal of Student Affairs Inquiry is an online, peer-reviewed publication for inquiry (i.e., assessment, evaluation, and research) in student affairs. This journal provides a scholarly space for addressing practice and theory in student affairs inquiry by highlighting both the universal (e.g., foundations of student affairs assessment) and the local (e.g., single-institution assessment projects).
