Crowdsourcing the Monograph
Saturday, June 20 — 1:45-3:00 pm
Facilitator: Frances Pinter, CEO, Manchester University Press
Is it possible for university presses to use crowdsourcing to fund monographs with interested parties donating money, time and skills? Would it be wise to set up an AAUP site that would allow post-peer-reviewed materials to be listed to ascertain if they can be funded in non-traditional ways? How could this work? How could authors become involved? Would only e-books be produced? Or is the monograph dead and new forms of publication replacing it?
