New Open Access Basque Studies Journal Announced

The Boise State Basque Studies program, in collaboration with several other organizations, has developed BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal. Housed in ScholarWorks, BOGA is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access academic publication dedicated to the scholarly study of all aspects of Basque culture. It aspires to foster a better understanding of Basque heritage by disseminating original works of interest to an English speaking audience and to encourage interaction among academics from various learning traditions.

With the inaugural issue scheduled for Fall 2013, papers are currently being accepted through June 1st. Works published in BOGA will be distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial License (CC BY-NC). By granting a CC BY-NC license to their work, authors retain copyright ownership of the work, but give explicit permission for others to download, reuse, reprint, modify, distribute, and/or copy the work, as long as the original source and author(s) are properly cited (i.e. a complete bibliographic citation and link to the BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal website), and used for no commercial gain.
