Diversity

PALNI is comprised of approximately two dozen academic institutions adhering to differing missions, research areas, and pursuits in scholarship. PALNI Press is thereby a mechanism to collect, highlight, and promote member institutions’ varying scholastic output as well as the different mediums in which such work is expressed. In addition to facilitating new student and faculty contributions within the field of scholarly publishing, PALNI Press fosters and promotes equal, equitable, and free access to its hosted content by all users throughout the world.
