Scholarly Publishing Goes Digital

From Inside Higher Ed: "New Model for Scholarly Publishing"

Rice University Press is making a comeback as a digital publisher. Their rationale?

  • no pressure to publish works that will sell enough copies to justify print run
  • junior professors will have an easier time getting published
  • more affordable publishing
  • more streamlined
  • maintain peer-review
These publications will be available for free download on Connexions.
