North Dakota Quarterly Partners with University of Nebraska Press
The College of Arts and Sciences of the University of North Dakota and journal editor William Caraher, associate professor of history at UND, have selected the University of Nebraska Press as the new publishing partner for North Dakota Quarterly. The journal’s editorial home will remain at the University of North Dakota, and Dr. Caraher, along with the journal’s assistant editors and editorial board, will continue to control the journal’s content and direction. The University of Nebraska Press will assume production, marketing, and fulfillment responsibilities beginning in 2019.
 
Dr. Caraher explained the decision by saying, "For us partnering with University of Nebraska Press makes perfect sense. They allow NDQ to draw upon the marketing, production, and distribution resources of a major university press while allowing us to keep our distinctive identity and traditions intact. We're looking forward to starting this exciting new chapter with UNP and continuing to publish excellent fiction, poetry, and non-fiction for years to come."
 
 “We’re pleased to be partnering with North Dakota Quarterly. University of Nebraska Press is the largest publisher in the region and, as such, we’re committed to using our expertise to support excellent journals like this,” said Donna Shear, the press’s director.
