Digital Monograph Publication


Release Date: 08/17/20, Allison Levy, Crystal Brusch, Darcy Cullen, Susan Doerr, Sarah McKee, Beth Fuget

This session brings together authors, digital scholarship professionals, and academic press professionals to share their stories of collaboration in publishing digital monographs of all stripes—from enhanced open access editions of conventional print books to born-digital interactive scholarly works. How did these works come into being? Why were the authors committed to digital publication? What support did their home institutions provide? When and how did publishers enter the picture? What challenges emerged during the editorial and production processes, and how were they resolved? How can we encourage a shared vocabulary for these digital publications among the wider scholarly communications community? The session focuses less on demonstrating the works themselves and more on the ways in which various stakeholders collaborated to fully realize the project or author’s vision.
