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.
