First Open Access Monograph in Digital Archives @ GSU

Professor Dennis Young of the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies has the distinction of being the first GSU faculty member to publish a fully open access monograph in our institutional repository. The book is If Not for Profit, for What? A Behavioral Theory of the Nonprofit Sector Based on Entrepreneurship first published in 1983 by Lexington Books.  The new edition corresponds with the 30th anniversary of the book’s original publication and the 4th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise to be held at the University of Liege (Belgium) in July.  The conference theme mirrors the book’s title and will be featured at the conference with Prof. Young serving as a keynote speaker.  The new edition contains new front matter including a new Foreword by Prof. John G. Simon of Yale University, who wrote the original Foreword, and commentaries by eight distinguished scholars of nonprofit, social enterprise and social entrepreneurship research, who discuss the impact of the book and its application to contemporary research, policy and practice. If Not for Profit, for What? is now available through the Digital Archive @ Georgia State University.
