Appreciating the Messy Process of the Public Humanities

A post from Feeding the Elephant: A Forum for Scholarly Communications.

Note: This post grew out of a presentation the authors gave at the 2020 National Humanities Conference, and that presentation in turn grew out a working group on publishing publicly engaged humanities projects. A white paper on the topic will be published in spring 2021.

Why Is My Book So Expensive? The Cost of a Scholarly Monograph

A post from Feeding the Elephant: A Forum for Scholarly Communications.


Authors often ask publishers, “Why is my book so expensive?” The short answer: it really isn’t that expensive. The long answer: your scholarly book might cost more than commercially published nonacademic books because academic presses are spreading the cost of producing a title across a smaller number of print units. Each unit therefore has to be priced higher to enable the press to recoup the cost of production.
