The Future of Scholarly Publishing
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n39 pB12 Jun 2009
In these times of financial crisis, much of the discussion about scholarly publishing has focused on budgets, the switch to electronic formats, and the future of the monograph. Throughout, however, university presses have continued to bring out important scholarship that is the mainstay of academe. "The Chronicle Review" asked a group of editors and press directors (via e-mail) about intellectual trends in what they are publishing. The forum participants were: (1) Douglas Armato, director, University of Minnesota Press; (2) Joan Catapano, associate director and editor in chief, University of Illinois Press; (3) Patricia Fidler, publisher (art and architectural history), Yale University Press; (4) Wendy Lochner, senior executive editor (religion, philosophy, and animal studies), Columbia University Press; (5) Charles T. Myers, executive editor and group publisher (social sciences), Princeton University Press; (6) Niko Pfund, trade and academic publisher, Oxford University Press; (7) Leila Salisbury, director, University Press of Mississippi; (8) Doug Sery, editor (new media, game studies, and design), MIT Press; (9) Alan G. Thomas, editorial director (humanities and sciences), University of Chicago Press; (10) Lindsay Waters, executive editor (humanities), Harvard University Press; and (11) Eric Zinner, editor in chief, New York University Press. This article presents a selection of their answers to questions regarding new areas of growth in topics and approaches, over-published subjects, fields that have declined in the past 10-15 years, productivity of new series, edited collections, and new trends in scholarly writing.
