Cedrus Press provides an innovative way for faculty and others to promote and disseminate their research by providing these benefits:
Public Access: Full texts of works may be published online in an open-access format, available free to users worldwide.
Readership: Cedrus Press can support projects for any size readership. It aims to give a platform for scholars whose works might not meet the 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.
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 can provide download statistics to authors.
Copyright: Works are published under a nonexclusive permission to publish agreement. The electronic works reside in the Cedarville University Digital Commons repository and remain at all times free to readers. Authors who are the creators and/or the holders of any proprietary rights in their work retain ownership of all rights to the work, including copyright, and may publish elsewhere without restrictions or limitation. In retaining copyright, authors are free to superimpose a license on their work in any manner they choose, including assigning a Creative Commons license.
Print-on-Demand: Titles may be made available as print-on-demand publications. Titles may be 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.
Style: Cedrus Press may provide assistance with editing, design, and composition (typesetting) for works in a variety of sizes and formats. In consideration of any assistance that Cedrus Press may provide, a portion of the earnings from print versions will be negotiated to support Cedrus Press operations.
ISBNs: All new works are assigned International Standard Book Numbers [prefix: 978-0-99672-] for both electronic and printed editions.
Cataloging: Catalog records for Cedrus Press are available via OCLC.
Preservation: Permanent access to materials is ensured through the repository.
