Sustaining Scholarly Publishing
Posted by Kathleen Fitzpatrick | Filed under announcement
MediaCommons is very happy to host an open discussion of the Association of American University Presses report, released on Monday, “Sustaining Scholarly Publishing: New Business Models for University Presses.” This report examines the experiments currently underway in university press publishing and makes several key recommendations for the success of future innovation. Central to these recommendations is a call for greater collaboration and communication in these publishing processes.
Thanks to the support of Monica McCormick, Program Officer for Digital Scholarly Publishing at NYU, the AAUP task force has not only graciously agreed to but enthusiastically supported this discussion. Please come join us, and help MediaCommons and the AAUP together foster the kinds of communication that will support new modes of experimentation in scholarly publishing.
