University of Hawaiʻi Press has partnered with Oxford University Press to launch Hawaiʻi Scholarship Online (HSO). Now live on the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform, HSO includes hundreds of books published by UH Press in a full-text, searchable, cross-referenced XML environment. HSO is available by annual subscription or purchase to libraries and institutions and can be accessed at the HSO website. For a limited time, to celebrate the launch of this groundbreaking research tool, selected chapters from a range of titles published by UH Press are freely available on the HSO website.
HSO launches with more than 350 scholarly monographs across four primary modules—anthropology, history, religion and society and culture. Included are essential works from the Korean Classics Library, the highly regarded Southeast Asia: Politics, Meaning and Memory series and thematic volumes focused on Native Hawaiian knowledge and methodologies that are jointly published with the Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
HSO also adds a new UPSO subdiscipline for Pacific studies, an area of growing global significance and scholarly potential.
“We are excited to join other outstanding presses within this innovative digital resource by adding our list to UPSO,” said Joel Cosseboom, University of Hawaiʻi Press interim director and publisher. “By joining the UPSO platform, UH Press advances its core mission of disseminating scholarly knowledge about Asia and the Pacific as widely as possible. The launch of Hawaiʻi Scholarship Online is the culmination of months of collaborative effort between our digital publishing team and that of Oxford University Press.”
