Pressing Challenges [the future of university presses]

Dominique Daniel's picture

Interesting discussion about the future of university presses:

"Amid declining book sales, university presses search for new ways to measure success.

...Initiatives such as the publishing service providers at Michigan and UNC are perhaps particularly worth monitoring, as they represent both a shift from publishers being paid for content to being paid for services, and from primarily serving authors outside of the university to also serving faculty members on campus."
