Argues that “Book publishing, though – and scholarly communication in the arts, humanities and social sciences – is far from settled”
Great quote from Kathleen Fitzpatrick:
“What if the press were re-imagined as part of a university publishing center that, parallel to and in collaboration with the library, served as another pivot point between the institution and the broader scholarly community—if, just as the library brings the world to the university, the press brought the university to the world? What if, rather than serving particular scholarly fields through the current list-based press model, the publishing center instead focused on the need to publish the work produced within the university, making it available for dissemination around the world? How would the press’s function in the scholarly communication process”.
