Current scholar publishing models are not economically sound and do not serve the public interest. Academic researchers, faculty and students have access to a decreasing fraction of relevant scholarship. But new software tools and technologies are being developed, tested and implemented. This Scroll will help scholars to realise that the responsibility and rights of regaining control of scholarly communication rests with them.
Israel Scholar is a web based independent non-profit educational organization. Run by scholars, it aims to promote and unite global Israel Scholarship. Israel Scholar, its partners in Israel and across the global academic world are reshaping scholarly communication. Taking advantage of the modern Internet technology and its' end-user availability, Israel Scholar is setting the Israel Scholar Archive, where every Israel and/or Jewish scholar could personally permanently archive his or her creative work, and make it freely available for peers and for the public. Such archive will thus provide a platform to have Israel scholars rights to regain control over their scholarship realised easily. More info on Israel Scholar Archive is available here.

As a volunteer-based organization, Israel Scholar presently stands most in need of dedicated volunteers who can work on software,
documentation, or administrative issues within each of the Israel Scholar projects. If you'd like to contribute financially to Israel Scholar, we would greatly appreciate it. Currently, the bulk of our financial
obligations are going towards providing our technical infrastructure - the servers and bandwidth that we require. Israel Scholar
also needs legal support for our projects requiring qualified legal counsel. Donations to support Israel Scholar can be made via a
secure online PayPal transaction. If you have a specific target or project that you wish to directly support, please
contact us. We will do our best to satisfy your wishes.
If you would like more information about supporting us your way, please contact Israel Scholar for more information.
All information will be kept in strictest confidence.
