About Project Euclid

Project Euclid's mission is to advance scholarly communication in the field of theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics. Project Euclid is designed to address the unique needs of low-cost independent and society journals. Through a collaborative partnership arrangement, these publishers join forces and participate in an online presence with advanced functionality, without sacrificing their intellectual or economic independence or commitment to low subscription prices. Full-text searching, reference linking, interoperability through the Open Archives Initiative, and long-term retention of data are all important components of the project.

The end result is a vibrant online information community for independent and society journals. This will assure that mathematics and statistics will continue to benefit from a healthy balance of commercial enterprises, scholarly societies, and independent publishers.

Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library and is jointly managed by Cornell and the Duke University Press.
Start-up funding was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Project Euclid holdings as of June 21, 2010:
Total pages in Euclid: 1,400,867 (1,001,020 open access)
Journal articles: 106,070 (77,536 open access)
Monographs: 159 (2,310 monograph chapters)
Conference proceedings volumes: 23 (651 proceedings)

Mira Waller possesses an MLS and comes to Project Euclid from the Duke University Medical Center Library and Archives, where she was Assistant Director of Archives. In her role as Project
Euclid Manager, she acts as an advocate for both Project Euclid's partner publishers and the larger library community. "I am excited by Project Euclid's capacity for advancing scholarly communications in a sustainable, user-centered, and affordable model," commented Ms. Waller about joining the Project Euclid team. "I look forward to working with Project Euclid's publishers, libraries, and users to further enhance and develop Project Euclid to ensure that it continues to meet their needs in this rapidly evolving landscape of scholarly communications and digital content."

David Ruddy is Director of E-Publishing Technologies, a unit within the Division of Library Information Technologies, Cornell University Library. He is responsible for the technical infrastructure and production operations that support Cornell's electronic publishing services, primarily Project Euclid, an online resource that delivers over a million pages of current and historical scholarship in mathematics and statistics. He also coordinates library operations supporting eCommons, Cornell's institutional repository. He has worked with XML applications and systems for many years, both in the area of humanities text computing and metadata services, and frequently conducts workshops on XML, metadata, and digital library development. He holds an MA, MS, and PhD, all from the University of Michigan.
