Abstract


With biomedical publishing currently a beacon for open access publishing, it is important not to overlook the contribution of humanities and social science publishing, whether one considers, as this talk will, developments in open-access models, mega-journals, bibliometrics, monograph publishing, open data initiatives, or the dream of the universal library. Based on a review of historical and economic elements that tend to distinguish scholarship from research, as well as a decade of working with independent scholar-publishers, this talk will make the case for thinking more globally about the common advancement of learning in the digital era.
