Electronic Publishing: Politics and Pragmatics

Description:
The technologies, economics, and politics of scholarly publication in the humanities will change rapidly in the near future. New electronic publication technologies that do not require large investments of capital—printing presses, warehouses, transport—generate powerful forces directing academic authors away from traditional print publication. This book brings together a team of academics experienced in this new field to explore the practical aspects of electronic publication and reflect on the politics of the knowledge landscape that is emerging. Their accounts of such practical matters as Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and coding standards form part of a larger consideration of the new knowledge economy and how the humanities disciplines will fare in a world that increasingly trusts its cultural heritage to magnetism and laser optics rather than inks and paper.
