The UO Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) seeks to help researchers in our community to manage their information through the research process and through the process of communicating research results to the broader scholarly community and to the public.

Questions about scholarly publishing – authors’ rights, open access initiatives, or UO’s publishing services – should be directed to John Russell, Scholarly Communications Librarian.

Journal Publications

Konturen is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the analysis of borders, framing determinations, and related figures of delimitation of all kinds. These include theoretical and historical, practical and speculative, aesthetic, political, and methodological borders, among others. “Konturen” is a German word that derives from the French tour, tourner, terms that bespeak a turning, such as the turning of a French word into a German one (or the reverse). We publish innovative work that takes into account the contributions of recent philosophy and theory to an understanding of problematic discursive places of meeting, overlap, or disjunction.

This peer-reviewed e-journal is devoted to the reformulation of received philological and philosophical ideas of writing and reading literary works, motivated by the advent of electronic texts.

“The original publication of the report Del silencio a la memoria was unanimously praised as a step forward in both making the work and mission of the AHPN widely known and offering a synthesis of its potential to understand how systematic state repression worked. The story told in this report is an exemplary case of commitment with the past and the future of a society still recovering from the wounds of violence and social injustice.”

Thailand was an early participant in bringing the Internet to Asia, and it has a fascinating, but little-known, networking history. The grassroots efforts by a few dedicated and visionary university professors have resulted in a fully functional national network, despite the limited infrastructure and numerous technical obstacles of the early days. This manuscript provides a detailed look at the background of this technological movement, and is available in English and Thai.

“Fifteen years ago, when pioneers experimented with the first email systems that could send and read messages once a day, who would have predicted the extent of the development of the Internet in Senegal? Today, we can all agree that the Internet was not just a passing trend, or a gadget that was too expensive for a developing country such as Senegal”. This manuscript takes an in depth account of the development of the internet in Senegal, and sees it through to 2004, when it is used as a component of daily life.  This manuscript is available in English and French
