*The New Amherst Model
The Amherst College Press will solicit and publish compelling literature for everyone, without regard to location, affluence or affiliation. We will distribute scholarship, without charge, not just to those connected with academic libraries. Our publications will be available to all persons with Internet connections, everywhere and all the time.
- We will produce publications rivaling those at top academic presses—created from manuscripts solicited from scholars worldwide and subject to rigorous peer-review by recognized experts.
- Content and copy editing will be thorough, and good prose will be a hallmark of the press.
- All publications will bear Creative Commons licenses.
