Policy Studies Organization partners with Berkeley Electronic Press to
publish its new journals

Berkeley, CA, November 10, 2008 - Berkeley Electronic Press 
(bepress) is pleased to announce that it will partner with the 
Policy Studies Organization (PSO) to publish a new collection of 
PSO journals, and to provide additional online society services.

The new collection of peer-reviewed journals includes:

Policy and Internet - www.bepress.com/pso_internet
Poverty & Public Policy - www.bepress.com/pso_poverty
Crisis & Risk in Public Policy - www.bepress.com/pso_risk

These journals build on the success of established PSO titles, 
such as Policy Studies Journal, and represent the next step for 
PSO's journals publishing program.

Paul Rich, President of the Policy Studies Organization, said, 
"PSO chose bepress because we need dynamic 21st century 
publishing for our titles, and bepress knows where the internet 
is taking scholarship. Sustainable pricing and fair access, 
personal attention, a strong service orientation, and cutting 
edge thinking were all big pluses for us, as are their 
innovations for integrating journals in a larger continuum of 
publishing services. Our members couldn't be happier."

The new PSO journals with bepress are part of a broader 
initiative by the PSO and bepress to create an online showcase 
for the PSO and its member community.

"bepress is pleased to add the new PSO journals to our society 
publishing program," said Gordon Tibbitts, CEO of bepress. "We 
have a decade's worth of innovative scholarly communication tools 
and services that benefit societies and their members, and look 
forward to the opportunity to enhance scholarly work in policy 

The three new journals will launch with their first articles in 
the Spring of 2009. For pricing and ordering information, please
