WSIA aims to publish timely works in the theory of argumentation -- understood broadly, in a way that encompasses informal logic, rhetoric, dialectics, and related fields.  

The academic monograph is still valued in higher education for its ability to produce sustained arguments and engage readers at a deeper level than articles (Degan, 2017). The development of digital publishing tools like the Open Monograph Press enables university and library publishers to support local campus publishing needs. The University of Windor's Digital Press, under the auspices of the Leddy Library, supports these initiatives on our campus and enables authors and editors to provide free public access to scholarly publications of local interest to the world.
