Have you ever wondered how your school’s law journals could publish in digital format while still offering a print option? One of our research librarians, Benjamin Keele, has come up with a creative and equitable solution. Keele has collaborated with the three student-edited law journals at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law to move to a print-on-demand system. Over the next year, each journal will end print subscriptions in favor of an open access PDF version. Some readers, such as libraries, lawyers, and others may want a print issue. By implementing the print-on-demand system, readers can order copies directly from the vendor at an affordable price. In addition, since each copy is printed by demand, there are no print runs or stacks of unsold copies.
