An overview of important new developments at Michigan Publishing, the University’s center of expertise for academic publishing and scholarly communication. Positioning ourselves at the forefront of new initiatives, we have adopted a new author-friendly contract, are opening up many of our backlist titles via HathiTrust, and continue to acquire high-quality scholarly monographs in the humanities and social sciences. Hear from editors at Michigan Publishing about these exciting developments, as well as a representative from the Library Publishing Coalition, an emerging organization committed to developing sustainable, innovative publishing solutions.

About the Publishing Practice Series

Publish, Preserve, Promote: Navigating the Present and Future of Academic Publishing

As part of the university library, Michigan Publishing serves a unique role on campus. Michigan Publishing produces monographs and journals, but it also facilitates conversations among scholars about the nature of their scholarly communication and the future of academic publishing. This October, the Institute for the Humanities is pleased to host a series of discussions and workshops to help faculty and graduate students successfully navigate the changing landscape of scholarly publishing.

Tuesdays, 12:30-2, in the Institute for the Humanities Common Room unless otherwise indicated.

Paul Courant, Aaron McCollough, and Sarah Lippincott
