PeerJ: innovative and affordable publishing in Bioscience, Computer Science, and Chemistry

Ann Viera (Pendergrass Library) and Peter Fernandez (ex Pendergrass Library, now at Hodges Library) are co-founders of the Pendergrass Library PeerJ publishing plan, with the support from many colleagues at the UTK Libraries.  We owe many thanks to the association ASERL which first brought PeerJ to our attention in 2014 with a Webinar,  and to OSU for leading the way with a PeerJ case study.

Ann Viera, third veterinary librarian, UT Libraries Pendergrass Library, retires 31 July 2020.

In lieu of a retirement party, and to honor the first two veterinary librarians who built UT Libraries’ veterinary collection from scratch 1979-1987, please consider a gift to the UT Libraries' PeerJ Institutional Arrangement, which Ann Viera co-founded with Peter Fernandez.

To support PeerJ to honor the legacy of the three veterinary librarians 1979-2020 who have served UTK, please do two things:

  1. please make your gift here, and
  2. notify Casey Fox (cfox@utfi.org) that you want the gift to go to PeerJ

If you have questions, please contact Casey Fox (cfox@utfi.org).

What a gift to the PeerJ Institutional Arrangement will do: enable UTK authors to publish in a 21st century journal that offers a pleasant, high-quality, high-integrity publishing experience.  PeerJ benefits (https://peerj.com/benefits/) include optional open peer review and production staff who will format the references for authors upon acceptance (!).  PeerJ is perfect for UTK authors because of its author-centric business model and affordable pricing ($1095 Article Processing Charge--paid for with the Institutional Arrangement or grant funds, or $399 PeerJ lifetime membership, paid by author) that are congruent with the land-grant mission and funding levels.
