Abstract: 

This report outlines the author’s internship at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Press and studies the production of a platform and prototypes for the publication of digital nonlinear works of Indigenous studies scholarship. The platform is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and is being created in partnership with the University of Washington Press. This report outlines the project itself; the development of the platform and the considerations taken into account therein; the three prototypes currently in development, with a focus on As I Remember It; and the process of targeting audiences and navigating scholarly peer review, a requirement for the press as a member of the Association of American University Presses.
