Encouraging digital scholarly publishing in the Humanities

A workshop for directors of university presses and experts in publishing and peer review working toward developing a sustainable model to increase both institutional and technical support for publishing born-digital, book-length scholarly monographs in humanities topics, especially for small university presses.

With Level 1 funding, the University Press of North Georgia will explore the peer review process for publishing born-digital book length scholarly monographs in the humanities in order to encourage their support, acceptance, and use in academia. The expected result will be an increase in the creation and dissemination of scholarly research in the humanities, thus positively assisting scholars and university administrators involved in the tenure process, as well as editors, librarians, and graduate students. Our project will leverage the expertise available at small university presses and build their capacity to encourage more scholarly publishing in the humanities. We will utilize a current working group of university presses focused on electronic publishing, the Consortium of Open Access Textbooks, and partner specifically with the University Press of Florida, Wayne State University Press, and the University Press of Akron to complete this project.
