The University of Windsor and the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric is pleased to announce a new venture in electronic publishing: the book series Windsor Studies in Argumentation (WSIA). The series aims to publish books and monographs in the field of argumentation theory, which we understand to include works in informal logic, rhetoric and dialectic and related fields.

The Editors in Chief for the series are:

Leo A. Groarke, Trent University

Christopher W. Tindale, University of Windsor

The series is hosted by the Centre for Research on Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric (CRRAR) at the University of Windsor.

WSIA is an Open Monograph Press venture which is being implemented as part of the Public Knowledge Project, which operates through a partnership between Simon Fraser University, the School of Education at Stanford University, the University of British Columbia, the University of Pittsburgh, the Ontario Council of University Libraries, and the California Digital Library.

Books published in the series will be available in a number of electronic formats on an Open Access basis (i.e. permanently and readily available at no cost through multiple public websites, databases, and research repositories). Hardcopies of all books published will be available for purchase. Our aim is to produce cutting edge work of interest to the field in a timely fashion, in a manner that makes it easily accessible to scholars and students around the world.
