we started publication in 2019, there have been 40 issues of the Chesapeake
Observer and the editors are very gratified with how our readership has
grown. Until now, we have supported the
journal out of our own pockets, with the intention that at some point it should
become self-supporting. We are now
asking for the first time for contributions to support publication of the
not ever plan to charge for subscriptions or put the articles behind a paywall,
because wide dissemination of ideas is our goal. No one is paid for anything published in the
journal, but the cost of maintaining the website and preparing new issues for
publication is substantial. Some
upgrades would enhance the usefulness of the site, such as a full searchable
archive of previous issues.
we are asking that our readers help support this effort. A donation of $10 per year from every reader
would put us in the black, but we do not expect every reader to be able, or
want, to contribute. That means we will need larger contributions
from some enthusiastic supporters to keep the journal widely available.
