Title: Phoenix rising: new models for the research monograph?
Author(s): Steele, Colin
Keywords: scholarly communication
university presses
institutional repositories
scholarly advocacy
Date created: 2003
Publisher: The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers
There is significant evidence that traditional university presses are continuing to face financial crises. Outlets for research monographs are drying up, print runs are being reduced and monograph costs are increasing. The combination of the digital networked environment and open-archive initiatives may, however, provide the opportunity, through institutional repositories, to rethink the role and nature of the distribution of research monographs in a university setting. The adoption of new models, untrammellled by the structures of the past, while still retaining editorial and refereeing standards, could revolutionize the access and distribution patterns of research knowledge within university frameworks. Ultimate success will depend, however on programmes of scholarly advocacy in scholarly communication with the academic author as both creator and as consumer.
