Support the Clearinghouse

The WAC Clearinghouse is a publishing collaborative that relies on a large, distributed network of scholars who work together to publish our books and journals, manage our resources, and develop and maintain our website. Because of their dedicated efforts, our production costs are typically less than ten percent of the costs borne by the average scholarly press. Nonetheless, providing access to our website and publications still requires some expenditures. Those costs include payments for professional copyediting, costs associated with book design, charges for ISBN numbers and DOI registration, and software and equipment expenses.

Individuals and groups can support the Clearinghouse through donations and sustaining contributions. Please consult with your tax advisor to determine the tax-deductibility of your gift. Educational institutions and other organizations can support the Clearinghouse through sponsorships.
