First library published open access issue of New Theology Review launched today!

Back in June I interviewed Melody McMahon, director of the Paul Bechtold Library at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Illinois following her announcement that the library was assuming publishing responsibility for the institution’s journal, New Theology Review. In addition to becoming the publisher, McMahon would be assuming the role as the journal’s co-editor.

Accompanying the announcement was the news that this long-running print and subscription-based journal (published since 1988) would be converted to online only and going open access.

When I spoke with Ms. McMahon in June she indicated that the first issue of the newly reconstituted New Theology Review (ISSN: 0896-4297) would be released in September. Well, that day has arrived! The journal is now live on its newly designed website There are also plans in the works to digitize back issues and upload them to the journal’s issue archive.

I encourage you to check out the site, and please drop Melody and the other members of the Editorial Board a note of congratulations to show your support for this wonderful effort.
