Prompt – Journal of Academic Writing Assignments

Chronicle of Higher Education | January 31, 2017 | Lee Skallerup Bessette

Bessette touts this new journal as a “pedagogical resource” that attempts to “bring together, in one place, resources for professors across disciplines, but also an opportunity to give an outlet for this kinds of work as scholarship.”

Prompt is a refereed online journal that publishes academic writing assignments for undergraduates and graduate students. Our mission is to disseminate a mode of intellectual work that is too rarely circulated in public venues, and we hope to contribute to the scholarly study of writing assignments in the field of writing studies. We also believe that by publishing excellent and innovative writing assignments, we can create both a resource and a site of engagement for faculty who incorporate writing in their teaching.



FACETS – Canadian OA multidisciplinary science journal

Ivan Seminiuk | Globe and mail | April 12, 2016

Canadian scientists have a new outlet for their research and it’s homegrown.

On Tuesday, Canadian Science Publishing – an organization born out of the downsizing of the National Research Council – officially launches FACETS, an online multidisciplinary journal that is Canada’s most ambitious effort yet to carve a niche in the burgeoning world of open access science.

… FACETS will charge a fee of $1,350 for each paper it publishes, a few hundred dollars less than the cost of publishing in PLOS ONE, the world’s leading open access journal, which uses a similar model.

FACETS will also publish opinion pieces and articles on science policy, he added, providing a forum that could lead to a more public airing of issues related to science in Canada and its interaction with government and politics.
