Plenary 1: University Presses, Universities, and the Future of Scholarly Communication
We are seeing the system of scholarly communication evolve before our eyes as new technology becomes pervasive in academic life. What is the best place for university presses within that emerging new culture of scholarly communication? How can we best serve our parent institutions, our authors, and our readerships? Will university presses be at the center or at the periphery of that emerging system?
