Academic Libraries as Scholarly Publishers
MetadataShow full item record
Academic librarians have historically been the scholarly literature's collectors and preservers, its major purchasers and ultimate disseminators. What happens between author manuscript and ink (or, increasingly, pixels) on journal pages has rarely been our concern. The world is changing, however; to maintain acceptable levels of access in the face of unendurable serials price increases and shifts in how researchers communicate results to each other, we are moving (willingly or not) toward more and earlier intervention in the scholarly-publishing process.
