New Ideas in Scholarly Publishing

From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

Bryn Geffert, Librarian of Amherst College, “is starting a new publishing operation overseen by the library and committed to open access, called the Amherst College Press. It will produce a handful of edited, peer-reviewed, digital-first books on ‘a very small number of subjects,’ the librarian says. ‘We want to do a few things well, not overextend.’ Amherst’s president and Board of Trustees approved the plan late last year.”

For New Ideas in Scholarly Publishing, Look to the Library.”
