COVID-19 Support for Scholarly Publishing

Retention of two full-time Ohio State University Press staff members to continue publication of humanities scholarship.

This project retains positions at risk due to decreased revenues from the coronavirus pandemic. The project involves activities that are central to carrying out our mission of serving the scholarly community and general public through publications that focus on the relevance of humanistic methods to studying pressing social and cultural issues. The project focuses on acquisitions activities that ensure high-quality book projects in the humanities are contracted and keep flowing into the press; production activities that ensure print and electronic books and journals are brought to fruition; and marketing activities that ensure books and journals can be successfully sold and distributed. This project will focus on mission-critical work that will ensure the long-term viability of The Ohio State University Press (an “independent component” of the university) and its continued work to advance knowledge by publishing and disseminating scholarship in the humanities.
