Eisenbrauns to Continue Under Penn State University Press
After 42 years of serving the academic community with quality publications in biblical and Near Eastern studies, I am delighted to announce that both the Eisenbrauns name and the publishing programs that have been established under this name will continue, in partnership with Pennsylvania State University Press. This partnership will enable the Eisenbrauns publishing program to move forward, in a cooperative and very complementary fashion, leveraging the strengths of both organizations to serve the academic community even better. The work that has been begun under the Eisenbrauns imprint will go on; and I will continue to work with PSU Press to guide and expand the Eisenbrauns program for some time to come.
