At-Scale Strategies to Support the Monograph

Two large-scale ideas have been proposed to address the need to support monograph publishing in academia. The AAU/ARL Task Force has proposed a project for first book or initial scholarly work by new faculty. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has been conducting some work to rethink publishing in the humanities. This session will include a discussion about both projects and how academia will respond to them.
