Pepperdine Digital Commons, the University’s centralized e-publishing platform and repository, celebrated its 100,000th article download this week. Launched only last February, Pepperdine Digital Commons offers full-text downloads of faculty and student scholarship, including articles in Pepperdine produced journals, such as Global Tides, Pepperdine Policy Review, and Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal. Lucky download number 100,000 was “The World of the Eighth-Century Prophets,” authored by our own Rick Marrs, Dean of Seaver College. The article appears in a 2003 issue of Leaven, a journal produced by the Religion Division of Seaver College. Prior to joining Pepperdine Digital Commons, Leaven was strictly a print-only journal. Through a partnership between the Religion Division and Pepperdine University Libraries, all 76 back issues of Leaven–going back to 1990–are now available online, opening up an important corpus of Christian Scholarship to a new, global audience.
