AAU-ARL Prospectus for an Institutionally Funded First-Book Subvention

The Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) are working together, through a Task Force on Scholarly Communication, to ensure a robust system of scholarly communication in the humanities and qualitative social sciences. The task force seeks to address the economic challenges facing scholarly monograph publishing and to exploit digital communication technologies to move the academy towards a sustainable, innovative, and open system for supporting humanistic research.

Specifically, the task force intends to address the inability of a market model to adequately support research monograph publication based primarily on scholarly merit. This prospectus describes a faculty title subvention designed to ensure the long-term economic viability of foundational scholarly monographic publishing, while promoting the emergence of innovative digital models:

This white paper was commissioned by the Association of American Universities (AAU) and Association of Research Libraries (ARL) joint Task Force on Scholarly Communication to explore the inability of a market model to adequately support research publication based solely on scholarly merit and to identify projects through which AAU-ARL members might constructively intercede. The paper was prepared for the task force in November 2012 by Raym Crow of the Chain Bridge Group.
