We Can Help
Please don't hesitate contact us with questions or ideas! We are always happy to sit down and chat. We regularly have conversations with faculty about demonstrating impact for RPT, increasing access to published and unpublished work, evaluating certain publications, and any other number of topics that might arise in the complicated world of academic publishing.
