The journal began as and remains a non-profit pursuit with everybody involved volunteering their time. We have no state ties and do not rely on any direct funding from outside sources. This is important, as it limits interference, providing prisoner ethnographers and editorial staff with the opportunity to maintain the vision and integrity of the publication. Although this allows for creative freedom, it does bring considerable financial constraints, particularly in recent years where we have made much of our content available via open-access to increase the publication's readership and reach. We thank our readers for supporting this project.
