The State of Not-for-Profit Publishing Today

Dominique Daniel's picture

Laura Brown and Roger C. Schonfeld offer a synthesis of the state of not-for-profit publishing:

"...we offer up the beginnings of an analysis of the state of not-for-profit publishing today. Ultimately, we see an enormous divergence between the STEM societies on the one hand and humanities-focused societies and university presses on the other.   Today’s piece synthesizes several probes that we have conducted in recent months. The first examined university presses, looking at how they have been navigating current challenges and also how they are looking ahead to a very different future. Subsequently, we examined scholarly societies, looking across an array of fields not only at their publishing but also membership and meetings."
