H-Scholar is sponsored by the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Its
purposes are: assisting independent scholars to share their work and research
interests with the larger community, enhancing their productivity by promoting the
sharing of information and resources, facilitating communication between
independent and academically affiliated scholars with shared interests and
concerns, providing information about issues of general interest to all working
scholars regardless of their discipline or situation and creating a forum for
discussion of specific scholarly issues across disciplinary boundaries.
