2010 Acquisitions and Authors in a Digital Environment
Acquisitions and Authors in a Digital Environment
Digital environments demand new relationships with our authors, our home institutions, and increased openness to different models of what we think of as publishing and co-publishing. A key facet is the increasing importance of building institutional relationships both within and without our home universities. How are editors and presses to negotiate these new relationships, and what are our authors initiating while we puzzle it out? What are the practical, institutional, intellectual and financial implications? We’ll hear about lessons learned from efforts and projects under way, what is and is not working, what’s promising and what looks like a dead end, from the people who are already knee deep in it.
