Utah State University Press has undertaken an exciting open-access publishing initiative: the imprint Computers and Composition Digital Press. Founded in 2007, CCDP is “interested in digital projects that cannot be printed on paper, but that have the same intellectual heft as a book,” and has published five open-access, peer-reviewed titles up to this point.
UIUC Professor Emeritus Gail Hawisher is one of CCDP’s co-founders and serves as one of its editors, and was one of the co-authors of the recent Transnational Literate Lives in Digital Times. Other titles in the series are:
- Technological Ecologies & Sustainability, eds. Dànielle Nicole DeVoss, Heidi A. McKee, and Richard (Dickie) Selfe
- Generaciones’ Narratives: the Pursuit and Practice of Traditional and Electronic Literacies on the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands, by John Scenters‐Zapico
- Technologies of Wonder: Rhetorical Practice in a Digital World, by Susan H. Delagrange
- Collaborative Approaches to the Digital in English Studies, ed. Laura McGrath
CCDP’s homepage includes more information on this publishing initiative, including editorial content discussing the press’s background, directions for submitting proposals for new projects, and further resources on creating accessible digital content.
