Reviews and Features

"As the Gutenberg Parenthesis is closing, Humanities scholarship that wants its fingerprint to be read for its touch to be felt will have to go digital. This handbook points us in the right direction." -- Ortwin de Graef, Dean of Research, Faculty of Arts, Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium

"This is a timely and judicious collection of essays that examines what is really at stake in the tensions between our established print cultures and the emerging 'digital humanities'. It explores the exciting opportunities that are becoming available, while remaining alert to the extremely serious political ramifications of the new technologies for our cultural life. Publish! Publish! But read this book to find out what that now means." -- Thomas Docherty, Professor of English and of Comparative Literature, University of Warwick, United Kingdom

"Combining close attention to material circumstances with a broad cultural and philosophical outlook, the contributors to New Publication Cultures in the Humanities offer a bracing vision of scholarly research as an open-ended and collaborative enterprise - a vision that this stimulating collection both advances and exemplifies." -- David Damrosch, Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature, Harvard University

"[This] book is useful for the scholars and research communicators to understand the conceptual frameworks and approaches to the new publication cultures, digital humanities, and e-publishing in the twenty-first century." -- Journal of Scientometric Research

New Publication Cultures in the Humanities

Exploring the Paradigm Shift

The changes we have seen in recent years in the scholarly publishing world - including the growth of digital publishing and changes to the role and strategies of publishers and libraries alike - represent the most dramatic paradigm shift in scholarly communications in centuries. This volume brings together leading scholars from across the humanities to explore that transformation and consider the challenges and opportunities it brings.
