Cedrus Press is the digital and print-on-demand publishing service of DigitalCommons@Cedarville, the institutional repository of Cedarville University. Its mission is to publish both academic and non-academic works by scholars affiliated with Cedarville University and by others who are working in research areas of significant interest to the university or the local community, providing an innovative way for authors to promote and disseminate their research. The imprint helps foster Cedarville University’s commitment to the future of scholarly communications. We offer the following benefits and advantages:

Open Access: Full texts of works are published online in an open-access format, available free to users worldwide.

Readership: Cedrus Press provides a platform for scholars whose works might not meet the readership or financial requirements for publication by a traditional press.

Publishing Schedule: The process of manuscript review to acceptance to publication is significantly quicker than that of a traditional press.

Distribution: Distribution is through Lulu.com, our print-on-demand partner, and may include sales through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Ingram.

Processing Charges: Cedrus Press does not levy any author processing charges for online versions.

Analytics: The Digital Commons is indexed by Google and Google Scholar and provides download statistics to authors.

Copyright and Licensing: Works are published under a nonexclusive permission to publish agreement. Authors retain all rights, including copyright, and may publish elsewhere without restrictions or limitations. In retaining copyright, authors may superimpose a license on their work if they so choose, including Creative Commons licenses.

Print-on-Demand: Publications may be made available as print-on-demand publications, printed singly or in lots as readers place orders. No hard copy run is printed by Cedrus Press and, therefore, there are never any remainders. Cedrus Press may require a share of the profits.

Style: Cedrus Press provides assistance with copyediting, design, and composition (typesetting) for works in a variety of sizes and formats.

ISBNs: Cedrus Press provides International Standard Book Numbers [prefix: 978-0-99672-] for both electronic and printed editions for all new works.

Preservation: Permanent access to materials is ensured through the repository.
